Germany: A Career Progression Destination


You’ve gotta hear this! Germany is the hotspot right now and it offers an incredible experience – don’t miss out on the buzz!

The HSBC Expat Explorer’s findings showed that Germany was a top choice for those looking to upgrade their lifestyle and well-being. Survey respondents had an incredibly positive experience living in Germany, which speaks volumes to what the country has to offer.

Germany’s vice-chancellor said his country could accommodate 500,000 migrants annually for the next several years and that $6.6 billion has been set aside for costs related to processing and accommodating them. Already, Germany has Europe’s largest population of migrants, just shy of 11.43 million in total.

Are you wondering why Germany is such a great place to live in? Well, for a fact, Germany is well known for its comprehensive welfare system. We have a list of things that might convince you to put Germany as your next career destination.

  • A great place for studies
  • Low crime rate
  • Good jobs and salaries & shorter working hours
  • Clean environment and good public transportations
  • Cultural attractions
  • Universal healthcare

Other than that, Germany also has an organised and fast immigration process, which makes the migration process easier and hassle-free for many people worldwide. The growing need for skilled workers also pushes Germany to make its immigration process easier and less complicated.

In fact, the German economy will need 400,000 immigrants each year to remain competitive. Because since the 1970s, Germany’s birth rate has declined quite dramatically. At the same time, average life expectancy has been going up. Without immigration, the potential number of workers in Germany would decrease by 40% by 2060. With net immigration of about 400,000 people each year, they can keep this figure just about stable. Immigration is important for Germany because expats play an important role in social and economic development.

Germany has one of the world’s most organised and fastest immigration processes. People immigrate to Germany because of work, studies, business, or family reunions and many more. Are you interested in making your move? Here are a few things you need to have to make a move:

  • Proof of financial stability
  • Health insurance
  • German visa
  • Basic proficiency in German

Why is Basic Proficiency in German so essential, and what are the minimum requirements? Well, the minimum level of proficiency differs according to your goal actually. There are 3 levels of language proficiency in the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages (CEFR) —A, B, and C.

They are further divided into A1/A2 or basic proficiency, B1/B2 or proficient in the language and finally, C1/C2 or advanced language skills. In order to immigrate to Germany to pursue a professional career, you must have a level B1. If you want to get a permanent residence, you will need a higher, C1 or C2 level proficiency.

As we have stated before, Germany is a great place to be. But to move to Germany, you must at least have basic proficiency in the German language. When you study German with Agape School of Education, Singapore, we can assist you in your migration to Germany and help you pursue your dreams!
