Here you can find interesting news and a lot of things worth knowing about hiring and letting of living space and especially „temporary accommodation”.
Blue Card in use from today
Starting from the 1st of August 2012 it will be easier for highly skilled foreigners from non-EU countries to settle in Germany!
Up until now the Residence Permit so far has only been issued to people with an annual salary of at least 66,000 Euros. Now anyone who has a job with a yearly income of more than 44 800 Euros is eligible to receive a temporary residence permit.
An exception lies in industries with occupations that often cannot be filled - such as engineers - where an annual income of 35,000 Euros is sufficient.
With the new "Blue Card" Non-EU foreigners can gain permission to stay in Germany temporarily.
After three years, it is the possible to obtain a permanent residence permit, however only if the existing employment continues to be valid.
Good German language skills pay off too: Non-EU foreigners who speak German receives indefinite leave even one year earlier.
An important new feature: foreigners with a university degree and sufficient funds for living expenses can enter the country to secure a job, time-limited to six months.
Furthermore foreign students at German universities can take advantage of an extended 18 months instead of 12 months after completing their studies to secure their jobs.
