German Green Card Program to continue!

The German Government decided on 9 July 2003 that the German Green card program will continue beyond the original expiry date of 31 July 2003 until the end of 2004.

This is welcome news as it means that IT professionals and German employers will continue to benefit from a very successful program that has allowed around 15,000 IT professionals to gain entry to Germany since the German Green Card scheme was introduced. It is expected that by the end of 2004 there will be a new immigration law which will extend to other sectors of the economy the principle that specialist foreign workers should be allowed entry relatively quickly where no suitable local workers are available to fill the vacancy.
