Entitlement to the EU blue card
The new stay title is officially called the blue card EU. People who are entitled to the EU blue card are the following:
A pre-condition for receiving the EU blue card is a university degree as well as a working contract with a gross salary of at least € 50.800. The proof of precedence and the proof of similar working conditions
will be let out so the entry to the procedure will be much quicker.
There ist no possipility to get the EU blue card in Germany without a university degree.
An even lower salary border does exist for highly qualified people in shortage occupations. There the gross salary border is € 39.624. These jobs are mainly engineers, academics and similar skilled workers in the information and communication fields, as well as doctors. Here, a pre-condition proof is not necessary unless the working conditions are similar. In jobs where there is a so-called "special interest of non- EU- citizens" the salary border is lower. For receiving the blue card EU as a mathematician, scientist, engineer, doctor or IT-skilled worker there is a gross salary border of € 39.624 per year.
