Germany is a country with an open immigration policy. The state encourages immigration due to a lack of workers and low birth rates. In addition, the immigration policy is influenced by the historical past: returnees are welcomed back and immigration of Jews from the post-Soviet space is encouraged. Today, more than 12 million people that live in Germany were born outside the country - Germany takes second place by the number of immigrants right after the United States[0].
  • Visa-free access. It is not surprising that a German passport is one of the most desirable. Germans have visa-free access to 189 countries, which include all EU countries, the USA and Australia[1].
  • High salaries. Germany has one of the highest salaries in the EU. The average monthly salary is about 4,310 USD[2].
  • Multicultural society. Many immigrants live in Germany[3], and this may ease the adaptation - a foreigner will not feel alienated in a multicultural society.
  • Great medicine. So much so that Germany is one of the world centers of medical tourism[4].
  • Geographical proximity to other countries. Living in Germany means living in the heart of Europe. The rest of the European countries are close at hand.
  • Low levels of corruption. Germany is one of the least corrupt countries in the world. And although the Germans have not yet been able to eradicate corruption completely, compared to other states, Germany has achieved fantastic results[5].
  • Dual citizenship is prohibited. Therefore, upon obtaining German citizenship, you will have to terminate the citizenship of your native country.
  • High taxes. Germany has a progressive tax scale, and the tax depending on income is up to 45%[6]. With an average salary of about 4,310 USD[7] the amount of tax is already approaching the maximum possible. There is a chance that a good and sought-after specialist will be able to earn that kind of money at home, without giving up almost half of the salary.
  • Bureaucracy. The process of immigration to Germany is associated with a large number of bureaucratic procedures. This can be felt as soon as the stage of collecting documents for an entry visa.
  • Long stay for citizenship. In addition to the need to perfectly know the language and structure of the country, before obtaining citizenship, in most cases, you need to live in the country for eight years[8].
In order to immigrate to Germany, it is necessary to brace yourself for bureaucratic red tape: the candidate will need to collect more than a dozen documents, the processing and translation of which may take even more time than applying for the visa itself. On the other hand, moving to Germany is relatively inexpensive due to the geographical proximity of the state (if we speak about Europe) and reasonable visa fees. In addition, candidates who have correctly collected all the documents without any problems receive permission to move to Germany. The most important thing is to carefully study all the requirements for the desired type of immigration and prepare for it in advance without unnecessary anxiety and haste.

Student immigration to Germany

You can immigrate to Germany through education if you enroll in a university or vocational school and get a student visa, and after graduation, you can get a job and stay in Germany. Obvious arguments for this method of immigration are a low cost of higher education and the absence of German language requirements if the training program is in English. A student visa can be obtained not only by those who already have an invitation from the educational institution but also by applicants who have just submitted application documents or take foundation courses in Germany - the main goal is to show that a future student has money to live before and after admission, as well as the ability to pay tuition. If the university is ready to accept the candidate, and the candidate has enough evidence of funds, then he will receive a visa and a residence permit without any issues when he arrives in Germany.

Business immigration and Freiberufler in Germany

Immigration of entrepreneurs and investors is important for Australia, as well as for many other countries: foreign entrepreneurs and investors provide capital inflows, create jobs, and fill up the shortages of goods and services in the market. Before immigration, the businessman must analyze the local market, negotiate with potential partners, states and territories, if necessary, present a business plan. In other words, the host state must believe in the economic success of the future enterprise.
Business immigration to Germany involves two types of activity. The first is entrepreneurship, and the second is private business when a highly qualified professional works for himself. In German law, he is called a Freiberufler, or a freelancer. This is not just any freelancer though - the Freiberufler is a certified specialist, registered legally. He is not considered an entrepreneur and does not pay entrepreneurial tax, although he can hire assistants. Such professions include consultants, educators, translators, writers, psychologists, nutritionists, lawyers, dentists, and some others.
It may seem that immigration through business is a very simple way because to open a company you can have only 1 USD in the authorized capital, and a Freiberufler is completely exempt from such a requirement and taxes. However, everything is not so simple: the amount of the authorized capital is taken into account and matters when deciding whether to issue a visa to a future businessman, and the future free employee must prove his professionalism. After the candidate has prepared his business project or documents on professional qualifications, he can apply for a visa. If it is approved, it will only be necessary to enter the country and apply for a residence permit.

Requirements for obtaining a visa for business;


  • Share capital depending on the type of the company (from 1 USD for UG company and from 28,236 USD for GmbH company);
  • Conducting preliminary procedures for starting a business: creating constituent documents, drawing up a business plan, etc.

Requirements for obtaining a visa for Freiberufler

  • Certificates of education, advanced training, confirmation of experience;
  • Employment record book;
