Foreign professional qualifications; advice on recognition

In order to be optimally prepared for a recognition procedure at a recognition body, it is strongly recommended that you seek advice from a recognition counseling center beforehand.

Description

Procedure

If you have any questions about the recognition procedure, please contact a recognition advice center of the Berufliche Fortbildungszentren der Bayerischen Wirtschaft (bfz), a recognition advice center of the Integration through Qualification (IQ) project or the Koordinierungs- und Beratungsstelle Berufsanerkennung (KuBB).

Special notes

Accelerated skilled worker procedure (§ 81 a Residence Act)

Companies that already have contacts with skilled workers in third countries can bring them to Germany more easily and quickly in order to employ them in their company. Processing times for authorities are shortened in the accelerated skilled worker procedure (e.g. from three to two months in the recognition procedure).

If you are a company interested in carrying out an accelerated skilled worker procedure and would like to find out more about the procedure, you can contact the Central Office for the Immigration of Skilled Workers (ZSEF). If your questions relate specifically to the recognition of foreign professional qualifications, you can contact the KuBB .
