Working in Germany

Would you like to work in Germany or look for a job here?

We can help you to find your way among the legal regulations. We will tell you who to contact to obtain the necessary documentation and applications, and can provide you with additional information and tips, such as on family reunification.

What conditions you have to satisfy in order to take up work in Germany depends initially on whether you are a national of a Member State of the European Union (EU), of the European Economic Area (EEA) or of Switzerland, or a citizen of a third country.
