Is yours an internationally operating company and you wish to employ a staff member from abroad in Germany? Like many other countries, Germany has preferential regulations for recruitment with a corporate group. For example, employment of up to three years can be agreed without any need for testing to see whether there are job applicants with preferential rights. You can find out what the procedure is and which documents your company needs to submit from the information booklet for employers published by the Federal Employment Agency, entitled “Internationaler Personalaustausch und Auslandsprojekte” (International staff exchanges and projects abroad), or contact the responsible agency directly.
Do you intend to transfer qualified professionals, specialists or trainees within the company? Then you can make use of the ICT Card. Here you will find more information on the ICT Card.
Both international staff exchanges and ICT Card require the approval from the Federal Employment Agency. You will find the competent contact on the webpage of the Federal Employment Agency (BA).
