Germany has a serious shortage of skilled labor in key industrial sectors. The country is devising measures to meet the requirements, one of which is easing the immigration requirements.
The German government is up to doing something about the labor issue by utilizing a large population of a specific class of migrants. This group of migrants comprises around 130,000 migrants who have stayed in the country for at least 5 years by January 1, 2022. They also weren’t granted long-lasting permission to stay in the country. Their immigration status will now be regularized and they will be granted a “right of opportunity to stay”.
The new status granted to these people will last for a year. After that period, they will be granted permanent residency if
With this step, those migrants will have made a life for themselves in Germany. On the other hand, the German economy will benefit from the move as it will recruit skilled workers into vacant job positions. In 2021 only, the German economy reeled under the shortage of 400,000 workers. This shortage has only aggravated in 2022.
Major companies including automobile companies are in fact urging the German government to come up with a process for regulated immigration of skilled migrants. This is significant considering that each year thousands of shortages are occurring in key industry sectors such as automobiles, software, and logistics.
The new regulation has been made and endorsed by the German cabinet. Migrants who will benefit from this regulation will add to the skilled labor force of the country.
A pathway to permanent residency in Germany already exists. Under this immigration pathway, a migrant under the age of 27 can apply for a Germany PR visa after just 3 years of living in this country.
The new regulation serves migrants greatly as it will also make it easier for them to learn the German language.
The benefit will be evident to skilled laborers, such as IT specialists and persons holding professions who are required at work in Germany as they are in high demand. With the new regulation, they will be able to move to Germany taking their families along with them, immediately. This wasn’t a possibility before.
Also, members of their families aren’t required to possess any language skills before moving to Germany.
