Relaxed rules

Germany's New Skilled Immigration Act came into effect on March 1, 2020. Since then, Germany has officially opened the door for skilled labour from foreign countries.

The New Skilled Immigration Act has relaxed the rules and those who have obtained a bachelor’s degree, a diploma and vocational certificate from a higher vocational institute, secondary vocational institute, or technical institute outside Germany are eligible to apply as skilled immigrants.

Applicants who obtain a work contract or a job invitation can apply for a work visa valid for four years. This can be changed to a permanent residence permit after four years. The provisions in the New Skilled Immigration Act provide the greatest possibility for qualified foreign nationals to apply as a skilled immigrant in Germany.

Reasons for immigration to Germany

Germany offers the following advantages:

1. Germany is a developed country bolstered by the real economy and the manufacturing industry. The country is therefore able to provide a sufficient number of job opportunities for foreign skilled immigrants.

2. Germany ’s vocational education occupies a leading position in the world, and its dual vocational education system has a broad and lasting impact in Asia, including Greater China. In many countries, dual vocational education has been largely localized. Therefore, the technical and skilled personnel in this region are very suitable and cater to the needs and requirements of German employers.

3. The salary, working conditions and welfare offered by German companies are at a high level in the EU. There is no discrimination. International professionals enjoy the same salaries, rights and welfare conditions as German nationals.

4. German language requirements are relatively low.

Residence Permits

  • Residence permits can be obtained after only 4 years
  • Valid for your spouse and children
  • Valid all over Europe

Applicants who obtain a work contract or a job invitation can apply for a work visa valid for four years. This can be changed to a permanent residence permit after four years.

Work visas and residence permits are also valid for the client’s spouse and children. (dependent visa).

Work visas and residence permits give you and your family the right to :

  • enter at any time (multiple entry)  
  • travel freely  
  • stay and
  • work

in Germany and all EU-member states. They also give you the right to enter Switzerland and Lichtenstein. A German residence permit also provides you with several advantages when applying for a visa to the USA, Japan, Canada, Australia or the UK.  

Immigration Procedure

  • Straightforward and time-efficient
  • Visa, Language, Employer, Residence Permit: We arrange everything for you

In the past two decades, BSK International has effectively implemented a series of international cooperation projects in Asia. These are aimed at cultivating students and talents directly or indirectly serving Germany’s manufacturing industry. These projects, and the various forms of operating systems for the above purpose, provide a solid foundation for BSK International to implement the New Skilled Immigration Act project.

The projects of the New Skilled Immigration Act provide our partners with new opportunities:

(I) The department "BSK Department for Skilled Immigration to Germany” of BSK International specialising in skilled immigration to Germany welcomes education institutions and immigration agencies in Asia to join us.

(II) We will provide partners who intend to apply as a skilled immigrant with a reliable handling system within the framework of the New Skilled Immigration Act, and the following standard procedures:

1. Case evaluation and design for skilled immigrants
2. Assessment of academic qualifications and skills certificates
3. Signing of skilled immigration contracts
4. Procedures for acquiring the relevant German language skills
5. Visas
6. Employment arrangements
7. Applying for a permanent residence permit

The above content will provide a convincing, reliable, professional and specialised supportive and guaranteed system for skilled immigration to Germany at home and abroad.


  • Low language requirements
  • We arrange all German language courses in your home country and in Germany for you  

Australia and Canada require IELTS Band 6 to 6.5 for skilled immigrants; Germany requires European standard B1 German level, which is nearly equivalent to English IELTS Band 5 to 5.5. This means the vast majority of applicants can achieve the proficiency required through effective learning.

BSK will offer German language training courses in Bonn, Germany, as well as through an online learning system. It will provide skilled immigrants with access to A1, A2 to B1 German courses.

The language training arrangements will be tailored to the clients requirements. This has  proven effective for many years in practice. Many successful cases in international projects implemented by BSK, have shown that any candidate with zero-German knowledge can conquer the barrier, as long as he/she complies with the "Procedures for Solving German Problems" and makes the necessary effort.

Fees & Deposit

No risk for you

We will apply the “We deliver first, you pay later” approach to clients in the pilot phase:

All costs incurred in the entire procedure will be fully paid by BSK on the client’s behalf. The client will pay later, and only when all services have been delivered.

We will pay on your behalf:

1.1. Tickets for international flights to and from Germany incurred during the process.
1.2. German language training fees.
1.3. Documents, notary fee, translation fee, postage fee.
1.4. Certification fees for certificates in Germany.
1.5. Expenses incurred in arranging employment.
1.6. Expenses incurred for handling the permanent residence permit.

1.7. Fees for first-time visa and extension in Germany.
1.8. Transportation expenses and accommodation expenses incurred in applying for the first visa with the German Embassy or Consulate General in the home country of the applicant.
1.9.The client must pay back the advance payment by BSK International after the project has been successfully finished. 

1.10. Not covered: The advance payment does not cover the client's living expenses in Germany and any other expenses not included in the above procedures.

1.11. The prerequisite for the above fees being paid by BSK on the client’s behalf, is that the client must deposit the fees in a German bank. The account will be frozen and supervised by a German lawyer before the successful completion of the procedure. 

For the pilot project, the total fee to be deposited is EUR 39.000, this includes 19% German VAT.

Payment and refund

1. Successful completion 

Once the client is employed and obtains the work visa according to the provisions of the contract, it is defined as “a successful completion”.

The fees due will be collected in two instalments:

1. Instalment: 30% of the first year's annual gross salary of the work contract, upon the signing of the work contract.

2.Instalment: 5% of the first year's annual gross salary of the work contract, upon obtaining the permanent residence permit.

The permanent residence procedure is a follow-up matter that will be handled by BSK after the work visa has been secured.


The project requires a deposit by a German bank in an escrow account, and supervised by a German law firm. The deposit will be frozen during the process and cannot be obtained either by the client, or by BSK International.

The deposit is 39,000 Euro.

2. Failed completion and full refund

If BSK fails to arrange employment for the client and to secure a work visa under the provisions of the project scheme, the contract is defined as “a failed completion".

In this case, the amount of money entrusted by the client at the German bank will be refunded in full to the client.

3. Default and contractual penalty

If no force majeure, defined in the relevant legal text of this project, occurs, any interrupting or withdrawing from the procedure shall be regarded as a breach of contract by the client. The default client has to pay the service fees deposited in the German bank in full as a penalty. The deposit will be released through a legal procedure and transferred to BSK International.

After the project is successfully completed, BSK and the client will settle the fees paid by BSK and the service fee (35% of the first year's annual salary).

Any excess payment (service fee and fees paid upfront are less than the deposit) will be refunded to the client.

Any underpaid fees (service fee and fees paid upfront are higher than the deposit) shall be paid to BSK.

Universities and their graduates enjoy the same benefits. Service fees, the principle of advance payment by BSK, and the actual settlement and return of the payment remain unchanged.

4. Definition of force majeure and handling expenses:

1. The scope of causes of force majeure is in accordance with international practice and civil law.

2. Accidental death or the level of disability identified by a German hospital directly resulting in the cancellation of the project, is included in the scope of force majeure for immigration projects. 

3. According to the scope of force majeure, exemption or delayed performance shall be distinguished. Three types of fee processing methods including full refund, partial refund or delayed performance shall be applied.

Dispute Settlement

Disputes in Germany will be held in German courts through civil lawsuits. The court's decision shall prevail, and the costs of litigation shall be borne by the losing party.

The legal rights and interests of all parties are protected by the maintenance of contract spirit and by the law. 

1. Being aware of all information is a prerequisite for participation.

2. The partners and parties involved must fully understand the project, read the relevant documents and materials in detail, and be fully informed.

3. Before the client signs the formal contract, a cooling-off period of up to two weeks between the registration and contract signing shall be given. After that period, a formal contract can only be signed if the client has signed the "Declaration of Informed Consent". 

We suggest that all contract texts and related legal documents should be reviewed, witnessed and confirmed by the legal department or lawyer of the relevant party before they can become valid.

a) The contract and related legal documents that have been formally signed, and have legal effect, are the sole basis for the handling process and approach.

b) The implementation of each procedure in the framework shall be subject to the implementation of rules stipulated in each procedure, and the completed procedures must be completed with a formality.

c) Any case that requires adjustment of the implementation rules, due to special circumstances, must be agreed upon by both the implementer and the parties. The adjustment reasons and the process operations must be documented separately. The adjustment and implementation can only be implemented after both parties have signed and completed the filing procedures. If any party's request is not accepted by the other party, the original implementation rules shall be applied.

d) The arbitration institution or the court where the dispute will be heard and the immigration service must be specified in the relevant documents or terms.

The above principles and focal points will be specified by a detailed and operable contract with legal effect, in order to safeguard the legitimate rights and interests of the parties.
