Germany Adopts First Part of New Skilled Worker Law This Month

This month, the first new regulations that aim to make it easier for foreign-skilled workers to emigrate to Germany will enter into force.

Taking into account the labour shortages that the country has been facing, the German government decided to reform the Skilled Immigration Act, which will become effective through different stages, with some changes entering into force this month and some others in 2024.

As the German government explains, the reform will reduce the legal hurdles for skilled workers with professional qualifications and university graduates who are not citizens of the EU, reports.
