Applying for a Job Seeker Visa in Germany
Germany added this new visa category in March 2022. It enables those who want to work in Germany but don’t have a job lined up to visit the country for six months to look for suitable employment.
It works much the same as a tourist visa, except that once you find a job, you can convert it to a work permit without having to return home to apply for a new visa.
Furthermore, the German job seeker visa enables you to work up to 10 hours a week on a probationary basis, so you and your employer can determine if you are, indeed, a suitable candidate.
It provides an indirect path if you aim to immigrate to Germany permanently.
