Questions and answers for applicants

The most important information on entry

The new Skilled Workers Immigration Act has changed the conditions. It is now easier for care workers, for example, to enter Germany from Eastern European countries that do not belong to the EU.

How do I obtain an entry visa as a citizen of a third country?

  • If you come from a non-EU country, you must have your vocational training or studies recognised by a German competent authority. The authority must certify that your training is in accordance with German standards. Sometimes the training is only partially recognised. In that case, you have the opportunity to make up for the missing content.
    Costs: The recognition procedure can cost up to € 600 and sometimes more. In addition, variable expenses for translations, certifications, etc. must be expected. Normally, these costs are covered by your future employer. Under certain circumstances, the federal government, the state or the Federal Employment Agency may also support the recognition.
  • For IT specialists, proof of relevant practical work experience may be sufficient.
  • You must submit a concrete job offer from an employer in Germany.
  • The salary must exceed a certain limit depending on age and industry.
  • If you do not have a job offer yet, you can apply for a visa to look for a job in Germany.
  • You must speak German at least at B1 level.
  • If you meet all the conditions, you will receive your entry visa, which is valid for six months

Which authorities do I have to register with in Germany and who will help me?
