Finding Work for Your Spouse

If you bring your spouse to Germany, he or she may want to seek employment. However, actually finding a job can be very difficult for foreigners. In many cases, foreigners only have a chance if they have outstanding qualifications for high skilled jobs (such as computer specialists) and/or excellent German language skills. Illegal work is strongly penalized.

Once you are here and have the necessary paperwork, you apply for the actual work permit at the local Arbeitsagentur (Employment office) in the city center (located on the West side of the train station).
