Germany Job Seeker Visa

Germany-Job-Seeker-VisaThe shortage of skilled workers in many sectors and professions in Germany, specifically in engineering, manufacturing and the IT sectors, as well as health specialists, has pushed the Federal Government to try and find other solutions in order to fill the labor gaps.

The Germany Job Seeker Visa is a German National long stay visa that was established in August 2012. The main idea is to lure more qualified experts from abroad to come to Germany to attend interviews and find a job.

Germany Job Seeker Visa Application Process

The application procedure for a German Job Seeker visa is similar to the application procedure for other German visas. To apply for a Germany Job Seeker visa, you need to follow these steps:

Unlike the EU Blue Card or a Standard Residence Permit issued on the grounds of gainful employment, the Job Seeker Visa allows candidates to enter and reside in Germany for 6 months without a job secured for the purpose of looking for work.

The Job Seeker Visa must be applied for in your country of residence, typically through your local German consulate or embassy. The exact set of documents and processes required may slightly vary between the different consulates across the world.

To apply for a Job Seeker Visa, the candidate must present evidence of the following as part of their application:

  • Necessary funds to cover their 6 month stay in Germany
  • Work experience in their field of study
  • Bachelors degree or any other higher study certificate
  • Updated Curriculum Vitae, i.e. CV
  • Cover letter outlining reasons for applying for the visa
  • Evidence of travel health insurance which covers 6 month stay

At Wiser Immigration, our visa consultants take you through the procedure and put together a strong application with all the necessary documents.
