Travelling to and from Germany while in between visas

Jump to last reply

I am a Canadian citizen and have been living in Norway, I had a residence permit which expired but I applied for a new one was allowed to continuously stay in Norway. I have been granted a new residence permit but I have not received it yet.

Currently the only papers I have:
- An expired residence permit
- A letter from the Norwegian immigration department stating that I have the same rights as before (work, stay, travel) while I waited for a decision on my permit.
- A letter stating I have been granted a residence permit.

I currently find myself in Germany and also need to travel to France before I can go back to Norway to get my residence permit. Due to the 'temporary' reintroduction of border controls in Germany[1] I wonder if this will present a problem for me, I technically do not have a residence permit, only a letter that a border control guard may or may not be sympathetic to.

Any advice? Will these papers be enough? It would be a big loss to cancel these trips, they are business related.
