Sehr geehrter Fragesteller,
Ihre Anfrage möchte ich Ihnen auf Grundlage der angegebenen Informationen verbindlich wie folgt beantworten:
1. is this krankschreibung obtained abroad valid in Germany or do I now need to go to to a German doctor to have a German krankschreibung.
Yes it is a valid in Germany as well maybe you have to bring a translation for the health insurance.
2. Is it permissible for me to travel while I am sick or do I need to be at home available for any controls. I have a second residence in a EU country and would prefer spending a few days there while sick.
No you can travel as long as the traveling doesn’t affect your sickness to become worsening. People who are ill can take part in daylight activities but not in those which are contra productive for example dance in a club with broken leg.
3. what is the actual starting date of the sick leave. Is it the day when I went to the doctor or is it the following day. I went to doctor at 4pm.
Starting date is the date when the doctor says on the form. He can reset up to three days backwards exceptionally.
In general it’s the day when you was at the doctor. It doesn’t depend on the time of day.
4. In case of an extension of the sick leave, can the additional krankschreibung obtained by an EU doctor. Would that be valid?
This would be valid as well!
