German government coalition members agreed recently to try to ease the shortage of highly skilled workers in the country by freeing up the rules for foreign workers.
The plan seeks to widen the range of foreign workers who can apply for a permanent residence visa by reducing the annual income threshold for skilled professionals.
For industry sectors with considerable job shortages, such as engineering, the threshold is to be reduced to 34,900 Euros or 2900 per month. This includes IT and computer specialists and engineers, workers in the health and welfare sectors and employees for parts of the building industry and the hospitality business.
At the end the successful applicant will have the chance getting the Blu card for Europe:If the knowledge of German language is sufficient – minimum level B1 – the card could be issued permanent.
