Visa, Residence permit and Health Insurance for Job seekers in Germany from countries outside the EU


Germany offers foreign jobseekers attractive residence titles for the admission of an employment, which must be appropriate to your study and your qualification.

Residence permit for Job search in Germany

 

The requirements for Residence permit are:

Step 1 : Residence permit for the job search

You can apply for a German residence permit for 18 months to find a job in Germany corresponding to your qualification. During these 18 months, you may undertake any kind of activity in Germany to secure your livelihood and to finance your job search. If you have already found a job in Germany corresponding to your qualification before completing your studies, you can skip this step. You can apply for residence permit in Germany as soon as you pass your final university examinations.

 

For this you usually need:

  • 1. Your passport
  • 2. Your final university certificate:
    Since the issue of the final certificate of the university can take a certain time, please ask for a written letter from the university that you have already successfully completed your studies in Germany. Normally your faculty will provide you the corresponding confirmation with the official stamp from the German university.

  • 3. Proof of valid health insurance:
    Please contact your German health insurance company and ask them to provide you with a certificate of your health insurance. If you look for new and cheap health insurance yet, we recommend you the affordable health insurance from Hanse-Merkur Versicherungsgruppe (from 30 Euro / month), more details here ...

  • 4. A proof that you can support your livelihood (for example, account statements or scholarship grants)

 

Step 2 : Residence permit for taking up employment

As soon as you have a job offer that corresponds to your qualification, you can choose whether to apply for a residence permit or a "Blue Card EU" for your further stay. The two residence permits are linked to different requirements.

 

Depending on how your future planning looks, the residence permit or the "Blue Card EU" can offer you some advantages and disadvantages. In particular, if you intend to work and live in another EU country later, the "Blue Card EU" can offer you advantages over the residence permit. Since the selection of the residence permit is determined by your personal situation, you should consult with your foreigners' authority in Germany (Ausländerbehörde) when submitting your application for German residence permit.
