Recognition of your professional qualification in Germany

Would you like to work in Germany in the profession you trained for? You are very welcome to do so. Germany needs well-qualified professionals. You have the possibility of having the professional qualification you obtained abroad compared with the requirements for this profession in Germany. 

In some professions you will require such an evaluation to be able to work in this profession at all. In other professions the recognition of your qualification will improve your chances on the
employment market. You can apply for such a procedure before your entry into Germany – regardless of your citizenship and a residence permit.
