order to meet a current temporary demand for highly qualified experts in information and
communication technology, up to 20,000 foreigners with a university or polytechnic degree
and a place of residence outside the European Union / European
Economic Area can be granted a work permit for a maximum of 5 years. This also applies to
foreign students graduating from German universities or polytechnics (Fachhochschulen) in
courses specialising in the area of information and communication technology. If foreign
applicants do not have a relevant higher education qualification, they can also obtain a
work permit if on
the basis of their outstanding specialist knowledge they are guaranteed an annual salary
of at least DM 100,000 gross. The conclusion of a written employment contract in a
language understood by the employee is required.
In the case of applicants who have no knowledge of the German language, it is sufficient
if they have a good command of English.
Workers are being sought in the occupations of information and communication technology,
for example for jobs as
system, Internet and network specialists
software, multimedia developers and
developers of circuits and IT systems
specialists for IT consulting.
On 1st August 2000 the changes in the law necessary for the expert workers to be admitted
German labour market should enter into force with a duration of 3 years.
Work permits may on principle only be granted if no preferential workers in the joint
EU/EEA labour market are available.
Employers are therefore advised to report their personnel requirements to the Employment
Office - if they have not already done
so - in order to be able to begin granting the work permits rapidly after the change of
the law enters into force.
