Skilled Immigration Act
which comes into force on March 1, 2020, expands the framework for the immigration of qualified specialists from countries outside the EU to Germany. In the future, professionals with professional, non-academic training will be able to migrate to Germany more easily for work purposes. Existing regulations for specialists with a university degree will be continued and in some cases made even easier.
What is changing with the Immigration Act?

The Immigration Act extends the framework for the immigration of qualified specialists from countries outside the EU to Germany. It essentially brings the following innovations:

    Definition of specialist: In the future, specialists with a university degree or qualified vocational training with a duration of at least two years will be considered specialists. A prerequisite for both groups is that their foreign qualifications have been recognized by the competent body in Germany.
    Entry into the labor market: The entry into the labor market is made easier: The qualified specialist must have an employment contract or a specific job offer and a qualification recognized in Germany. The so-called priority check by the Federal Employment Agency (BA) is not applicable. This means that it is no longer necessary to check whether an applicant from Germany or the EU is available for the specific job. The BA continues to review the working conditions.
    Employment opportunities: A skilled worker can pursue an occupation that the qualification acquired enables them to do. This means that employment in related professions is made possible. In addition, professionals with academic training can not only do jobs that require a university degree. They can also be employed in other qualified occupations that are related to qualifications in a technical context and for which a professional, non-academic education is generally required. Helper and trainee professions are excluded here, in any case it must be qualified employment. The EU Blue Card always requires employment appropriate to the professional qualification, which usually requires an academic degree.
    Specialists with vocational training: The employment of specialists with professional, i.e. Non-academic education is no longer limited to bottleneck occupations. With vocational training recognized in Germany, the residence permit for qualified employment also gives these specialists access to all professions for which they qualify.
    Entry to find a job: Even professionals with qualified vocational training are allowed to enter to find a job. You will receive a residence permit for up to six months. The prerequisite is that the foreign qualification has been recognized by the responsible body in Germany, that the livelihood has been secured for the stay and that German language skills are available for the desired activity. As a rule, at least German language skills at level B1 of the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages ​​are required. A trial period of up to ten hours a week is possible during the job search stay. This enables employers and foreign specialists to test whether they fit together. The trial employment is also made possible for specialists with recognized academic training who, as before, are also allowed to travel for up to six months to find a job.
    Residence for qualification measures: The possibilities for residence for qualification measures in Germany will be expanded. The prerequisite for this is that a recognition procedure from abroad has been carried out at the responsible office in Germany, in which deficits in the acquired foreign qualification compared to the German training were determined (approval notice). Other prerequisites for issuing a visa to carry out qualification measures include: German language skills corresponding to the qualification measure. As a rule, these are at least sufficient German language skills (corresponds to language level A2). For this purpose, the 18-month residence permit can now be extended by six months to a maximum of two years. After the maximum period of the residence permit has expired, a residence permit can be issued for the purpose of education, study or gainful employment.
