We are experts in providing comprehensive information and responsible advice in order to enable you, in accordance with your overall circumstances, to find adequate solutions to your personal advantage. We will readily provide Information in the following areas:
Citizens of the European Union (except the citizens of Croatia who still need the EU work permit which is issued by the German Federal Employment Agency), the European Economic Area (EEA) and Switzerland can live and work in Germany without restrictions. Third-country nationalities (i.e. citizens of non-EU countries) need to have employment approval which depends on the needs of the German economic system and the current situation on the market. A work permit for the mentioned citizens can be obtained only in case of a specific job offer. Otherwise, the employment will not be allowed. Priority in employment is given first to German citizens, i.e. EU citizens without restrictions to freedom of movement. If no suitable person among them is available for the job, then the citizens from the third-party countries can be employed. The work permit is issued for a maximum period of three years.
- Highly qualified professionals
Highly qualified persons may be granted permanent residence from the outset. This primarily applies to scientists with special expertise, teaching staff, and persons in scientific occupations in prominent positions.
- EU Blue Card
Third-country nationalities with university education who are offered a job with a specified minimum annual income may, with the EU Blue Card, obtain a limited residence permit (for a certain period of time), if they meet the requirements.
Researchers may obtain a residence permit for the purpose of research if they have concluded an agreement on conducting research in Germany with a research institution recognized by the Federal Office for Migration and Refugees.
- Self-employed persons
Self-employed persons may be granted a residence permit in order to carry out their business projects. This will happen if there is a specific economic interest or need for the project, or in cases when it is expected that it should make a positive economic impact and the funding has been secured.
Being self-employed has many advantages: for example, being one’s own boss, making one’s own decisions, having employees. On the other hand, there are many shortcomings, too, such as overwork and financial insecurity.
Therefore, find the information first, then set up a company.
