Would you like to work in Germany in the profession you trained for in your own country? It may be possible or necessary to have your professional qualification recognised before you can do this. Recognition can increase your opportunities in the German labour market, and is even a requirement for some professions (e.g. doctor, teacher or nurse). Anyone interested should thus ideally clarify before arriving in Germany whether their professional qualification is recognised in Germany and whether they need an official ‘recognition certificate’. Answers to all the frequently asked questions on this topic can be found on the website ‘Recognition in Germany’, the German Federal Government’s portal on recognising foreign professional qualifications. Here you can find out whether you need recognition and how you can begin the recognition procedure. The website has a special tool called the ‘Recognition Finder’. With just a few clicks, this online tool finds the authority or chamber responsible for your application. The key information is available in nine languages: German, English, Arabic, Greek, Italian, Polish, Romanian, Spanish, Turkish.
For mobile use, there is also the 'Recognition in Germany' app, which offers the information in seven languages: German, English, Arabic, Dari, Farsi, Pashto, and Tigrinya. You can find more information at www.recognition-in-germany.info.
