Do I have to have my training recognised?

New from 1 March 2024: Even without their degree being formally recognised in Germany, foreign skilled workers will be allowed to work in non-regulated professions in Germany in the future. This means significant simplifications and thus shorter procedures. However, a salary threshold must be met or there must be a collective bargaining agreement. (This is to prevent qualified professionals from working in the low-wage sector). Prerequisites are at least 2 years of  professional experience and a professional qualification recognized in the country of origin with at least 2 years of training. As an alternative to a state-recognised professional qualification, a degree from a German Chamber of Commerce Abroad is sufficient under certain conditions.
