As a result of a growing labour shortage, the country is “on the lookout for people who fancy coming to Germany to bring in their skills, expertise and passions,” says economics and climate minister, Robert Habeck.
Plans for a new points-based visa system could make it easier for skilled workers to relocate to the country.
However, which professions are they hoping to attract?
Germany is targeting both academic and vocational skills.
At a skilled labour summit this month, the German government focused attention on academic and vocational training were of equal importance.
Appealing specifically to skilled craftspeople, electrical engineers, IT specialists, carers, nurses, catering and hospitality professionals in an address on the government’s ‘Make it in Germany’ YouTube channel, Habeck adds, “We welcome people from all over the world”.
