The recognition of certificates and qualifications of ethnic German immigrants in Bavaria for agricultural professions without training courses in higher education must be applied for.


Pursuant to § 10 para. 1 of the Federal Expellees Act (BVFG), examinations and certificates of competence are to be recognised which late repatriates took or acquired up to 8 May 1945 in the territory of the German Reich according to the territorial status of 31 December 1937.

Pursuant to § 10 Para. 2 BVFG, examinations and certificates of competence are to be recognised which late repatriates have taken or acquired in the resettlement areas if they are equivalent to the corresponding examinations or certificates of competence in the area of application of the Basic Law.

Pursuant to section 7 sub-section 2 BVFG, section 10 is also to be applied mutatis mutandis to the spouse and descendants of late repatriates who do not fulfil the requirements of section 4 sub-section 1 or 2 BVFG, but who have left the resettlement areas by way of the admission procedure.
