Accelerated procedure for skilled workers
With the entry into force of the Fachkräfteeinwanderungsgesetz (Immigration act for skilled personnel in Germany) on 1 March 2020, companies and skilled workers from third countries have the opportunity to shorten the entry procedure.
Make it in Germany
In case of a concrete job offer, given corresponding authorisation from the skilled worker concerned, companies can apply to the relevant foreigners’ registration office for the accelerated procedure for skilled workers. The fee for this procedure is € 411. The procedure for the recognition of foreign qualifications can also be accelerated in this way.
As an alternative to the accelerated procedure for skilled workers, the regular entry procedure for employment can still be selected.
