How does the regular German EU Blue Card program work?
The regular EU Blue Card program – a path to EU settlement most effectively utilised by Germany – features an employment based mechanism for highly skilled professionals.
It functions in a similar way to national work permit based residency options offered by EU member states, but offers a range of distinct advantages over these programs.
First, to qualify for the EU Blue Card, you have to be a highly skilled graduate professional. Alternatively, recognized professional experience could potentially qualify you also.
Second, you have to secure a permanent job where you will earn a salary that is either 120% or 150% the national average – in this case, in Germany.
