Fast-Track Procedure for Skilled Workers’ Visas in Germany

German Business Immigration Lawyers

Would you like to hire a skilled worker from a third country and accelerate the administrative procedure until the visa is issued? Entry procedures are often lengthy processes due to the many procedural steps carried out by different agencies and many applications.

The fast-track procedure for skilled workers according to § 81a German Residence Act (AufenthG) was introduced when the Skilled Worker Immigration Act came into force on March 1, 2020, to meet the demand for qualified, skilled workers in Germany. The duration of this procedure is significantly shorter compared to the regular procedure. Among other things, shorter deadlines are specified for processing the individual procedural steps by the agencies involved.

Employers can initiate the fast-track procedure for skilled workers by submitting an application to the relevant immigration authority with the foreign skilled worker’s power of attorney. This option is an alternative to the regular application procedure.
