Welcome to the website of the Federal Foreign Office


Germany opens the job market for qualified employees from non-EU countries! From March 2020, qualified employees from non-EU countries will have easier access to the German labor market. In a first step, interested parties must have their foreign qualifications recognized in Germany. The recognition process should be started well in advance of the visa process. Qualified employment regularly requires a recognized academic qualification or a recognized professional qualification that has been preceded by two years of training. Before applying for a visa, the foreign qualification must be recognized at www.angewinn-in-deutschland.de There are exceptions for IT specialists with sufficient work experience.
