Is my application procedure considered to be legally final upon receipt of my card?

Is my application procedure considered to have been concluded in a legally final manner when I receive my Art 50 EUVAufenthaltstitel "Artikel 50 EUV" The Aufenthaltstitel "Art 50 EUV" is a residency title to be issued to British citizens from the end of the transition period. Its name is derived from Article 50 of the Treaty on European Union. The "Titel" refers to the document or card itself, and not the right, or permission that it confirms. card?

The card that is issued constitutes an administrative decision (Bescheid), and in the event the applicant does not feel that the outcome does not correspond fully with their expectation, they have a right of appeal (Beschwerde). For example, if you had applied for a ten year card, but the card that was issued was only for five years, then you have up to 4 weeks following the legal receipt of the card to lodge an appeal to the regional administrative court (LVWG; Landesverwaltungsgericht).

Before taking this step, it is however advised that you seek further clarification from the issuing authority, to eliminate the possibility that a clerical error has occurred during processing (e.g. we have heard of cases of a five year card issued bearing the designation “Daueraufenthaltsrecht” or a card issued for nine years rather than ten years).
