Press about us

What is the job seeker visa?

Foreign university graduates who want to work in Germany have the opportunity to obtain a Job Seeker Visa. The Job Seeker Visa gives you the opportunity to search for a job in Germany for six months.

With your application, you'll be asked to prove both your qualifications and that you have sufficient financial resources to fund your job search in Germany. In general, it is not permitted to actually work during your job search, although in certain cases a limited amount of trial work for a potential employer is allowed.

If you receive a job offer within the time of the Job Seeker Visa, you don't have to leave Germany again. You can apply for your new visa directly in Germany. Of course, VISARIGHT is here to help you with your new visa application if you find a job.

Germany's immigration authorities get to decide whether or not you are awarded a Job Seeker Visa. In order to positively influence them, you should clearly state why you want to search for a job in Germany in a letter of motivation. As much as possible, you will also want to offer some evidence of your motivation in the documents you submit with your application. VISARIGHT will help you make your case in the best way possible!

Job Seeker Visa Requirements

A German or recognized foreign university degree
Motivation & plausibility
Basically no language skills required
Proof of financial means

Recommendations

Submit a detailed letter of motivation explaining your motivation, along with plans for your job search and details about where you will stay during the search.
Make sure you make an appointment with the responsible foreign mission well ahead of time, otherwise the application process can be delayed.
Check which of your documents need to be legitimated or translated.
Remember that your Job Seeker Visa may only be reissued after a set waiting period.
Contact potential employers in advance and arrange interviews. Evidence that you are proactively searching in advance will send very positive signals to the authorities reviewing your application.

Frequently Asked Questions
Do I even need a visa to enter Germany?
Citizens of certain countries can enter Germany without a visa as a tourist. You will then have three months to apply for the Job Seeker Visa at your local Foreigners Office.
What happens if I don't find a job during the stay?
If you find a suitable job within 6 months of entry, you do not have to leave the country. If you don't find a job within the 6 months, it's not possible to extend the Job Seeker Visa. If your job search is unsuccessful, you must leave Germany, but then you can reapply after a set waiting period.
Is gainful employment permitted during the job search?
In most cases, no. Exceptions can arise if a potential employer asks you to do some work as a trial. You're not allowed, however, to work more than 10 hours per week as part of such a trial. You also aren't allowed to do any contract or freelance work in Germany during your job search.
How can I prove that I have the required financial means?
There are various ways of proving your financial independence:

  • Bank account balances
  • Declaration of commitment by a sponsor
  • Blocked account
How high must my bank balance be?
You should be able to show in your application that you have access to at least 853 EUR per month.
Can I request a Job Seeker Visa for a period shorter than 6 months?
Yes. And of course, for a shorter stay, the amount of financial resources you will need to prove in your application will decrease.
Can I take my family along?
No, the Job Seeker Visa does allow for family reunification. If you find a job within this period, however, you can apply for visas to reunite you and your family members.
Do language skills factor into a Job Seeker Visa application?
Language skills are not necessarily required. But since German language skills are unavoidable in certain jobs, the authorities reviewing your application may ask about your German.
Do I have to provide proof of scheduled interviews in my visa application?
No, scheduling interviews in advance is not a requirement. Showing that you've already begun to proactively search for a job, however, can reinforce the plausibility of your application.
How can I determine whether my educational qualification is recognized?
Whether your university degree is recognized will be checked during our Eligibility Check. The check is free of charge.
Will VISARIGHT help me with job offers?
We don't specialize in assisting you with your job search, but we will provide a detailed and exclusive guide to completing your job search in Germany.
