Germany

General

The EU Blue Card Germany enables university graduates (or comparable qualification) from non-EU countries to receive a residence title for the purpose of employment.

The EU Blue Card helps highly-qualified third-country nationals to migrate to Germany permanently. It therefore also helps to make the German labour market more attractive for qualified workers as well as reducing the growing shortage of skilled workers.

Procedure

important is the presence of an employment contract or a binding job offer.

Persons already living in Germany under a different residence title and would like to apply for an EU Blue Card can contact their local immigration authority.

Persons who reside in a non-European country must first apply for a German employment visa which can be obtained from the German mission in their home country. A tourist visa is not allowed.
