What is a blue card?
Requirements
German or foreign higher educational qualification recognized in Germany
The EU Blue Card is a residence permit for highly qualified foreign specialists, which gives the right to work in the EU. The benefits provided by the Blue Card are the rapid issuance of visas for all family members and the absence of the need to confirm the knowledge of the state language before entering the country. In addition, the spouses of Blue Card holders receive an unlimited right to engage in any kind of work. An attractive bonus is also the opportunity to get an unlimited residence permit after 21 months in the country.
Employment contract or job offer in Germany
The vacancy should correspond with the educational background
Proof of minimum annual salary
Reunion with family members to the Blue Card holder
Knowledge of German is not required.
The nearest family members (spouses and / or children) have the right to enter Germany in an expedited manner, provided they enter into the country within 6 months following the arrival of the Blue Card holder.
When reuniting with the Blue Card holder after 6 months, the procedure for obtaining a national visa will take much longer
Notes
1. If you already reside within the EU, you can contact the appropriate Immigrations Authority.
2. If you live outside the EU, entry into the country with the EU Blue Card is carried out under national visa category D. It must be requested from the competent German diplomatic representation in the country of residence.
3. If you are in an EU country on a Schengen visa or visa-free stay, the Immigrations Authority will issue a residence permit only in exceptional cases, and you will have to leave the country to obtain the correct visa.
4. There is an exception for citizens of some countries. In this case, it is necessary to submit an application for the issuance of a Blue Card within three months of entry at the relevant Immigrations Authority.
5. If you own the Blue Card of another EU country for more than 18 months, the application is made in Germany within one month from the date of entry into the country.

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens if I lose my job?
You must immediately report a job loss to the Immigrations Authority. Your permission to stay will be valid, but the agency may reduce the time frame for finding a new job.
Does the Blue Card entitle you to freedom of movement within the EU?
Yes, up to 90 days out of 180 can be spent in other EU countries as a tourist.
Is it possible for a Blue Card holder to leave Germany for a long time?
The Blue Card holder has the right to leave Germany and the EU for up to 12 months without losing permission to stay.
Can I change the Blue Card to another Visa category?
Yes, for this you need to contact the Foreigners Office at your place of residence.
Am I bound to my employer? Can I change my employer when I have a Blue Card?
For the first two years there is a binding to the employer. This means that when changing jobs, the Blue Card holder is required to obtain permission from the Foreigners Office to change employers.
What level of life awaits me? What can I expect when I move to Germany?
The answer to this question is difficult. Germany rankes highly for living standards in the world. The standard of living depends largely on the region you choose, the number of members of your family, whether your spouse plans to work, and the size of your salary. In the south of Germany, for example in Munich, housing is very expensive, but the standard of living is higher than in other regions of Germany. Therefore, before making a final decision, it is advisable to weigh the pros and cons.
How much will I earn and which taxes will I have to pay?
The minimum annual income of a Blue Card holder is 52,000 euros per year (for scarce occupations, this limit is reduced to 40,560 euros). In Germany, the amount of such income is considered above average. But you should keep in mind that there is a high level of tax and social contributions in Germany, and if a specialist is single and does not have children, these contributions can be up to 45 percent of annual earnings. Net earnings depend on many factors, so it is advisable to check the amount of future income in an online calculator.
Where can I find a list of scarce occupations?
We are talking about groups 21, 25 and 221 of the International Classification of Occupations (ISCO). The list can be found here.
Do I need medical insurance?
Yes, you will need to obtain health insurance for the first weeks of your stay in Germany (provided that you later acquire a health insurance contract in Germany or have an already existent one). Medical insurance for the first weeks of your stay in Germany can be arranged through VISARIGHT at a discount.
