Residence permit for highly skilled migrants
Businesses are growing and have become part of a global network. As a result, there is an increased interest in well-educated and international personnel. This means that highly qualified foreign citizens receive job offers in Germany or the EU. However, in order to pursue a profession in Germany, it will first be necessary to obtain a residence permit and an employment permit.
For workers in so-called shortage occupations, which include doctors, engineers and IT specialists, the “EU Blue Card” under §19a of the German Residence Act is particularly useful. In accordance with this, university graduates from non-EU countries who pursue these professions should, with a job offer in combination with an annual minimum gross salary, obtain the “Blue Card”. The holder of such a Blue Card may stay in the EU for up to four years and there are also prospects regarding a potential permanent settlement permit or a family reunification.
