Starting in 2005, Germany is making efforts to encourage highly skilled workers to migrate to Germany. While low skilled workers will still find it difficult to gain permission to work in Germany, highly skilled workers will find it easier to gain permanent residency. The professions most in need are natural scientists (biologists, chemists, physicists) engineers, professors and scientific personnel in high technology areas.
The new German Immigration Act, which came into force on 01 January 2005, helps highly skilled workers to obtain permanent residency and the right to work right away, instead of the previous 5 year work permits. They must have a concrete job offer and obtain permission from the German Employment Agency.
