Germany has agreed to relax the standards for acquiring a Blue Card because it needs talented international workers.
Qualified non-EU foreign people must have a European Blue Card residence authorization to work in an EU nation.
The card expedites obtaining permanent residency as soon as 21 months after moving to Germany, making it easier for highly trained non-EU professionals to enter the EU.
Germany modifies the criteria for Blue Cards. Four new measures have been implemented to facilitate obtaining a visa and family reunification for foreign workers, as per the most recent information on Germany ServicePortal Berlin.
One of the modifications is a significant decrease in the yearly income threshold required to be eligible for a blue card.
According to local media, the German government cut the yearly average wage criteria for highly sought-after sectors, including IT, healthcare, and mathematics, from €58,400 to €39,682.80.
Here is an exhaustive, current list of the occupations that cause bottlenecks. At the same time, the new qualification for other workers is €43,800.
Additionally, recent college grads and IT specialists are now qualified. In addition, a lower salary is now required for a Blue Card, available to recent university graduates who graduated within the last three years, and IT workers with at least three years of experience but no degree.
Furthermore, people who have been in another EU nation for at least a year and have a Blue Card can live and work in Germany indefinitely without requiring a visa.
