Recognition Check

Karte von Europa

Would you like to work in your occupation or profession in Germany? Check to see whether your professional qualification or training can be recognised in Germany. *

* The recognition check provides you with information on whether the recognition of your professional qualification comes into consideration for you. However, the recognition check is not a legal advice. The recognition of professional qualification can only be decided by the competent body if you have submitted an application.
