Blue Card for Foreign Professionals

You are an employer and would like to employ qualified professionals from abroad?

You are a qualified professional and would like to obtain the EU Blue Card?

vpmk lawyers are happy to answer all your questions about the EU Blue Card. We support you competently and guide you step by step through the application process to obtain the EU Blue Card for your foreign employees or for yourself.

The time factor is of central importance for us. Throughout the whole process we take care to avoid any delay in the proceedings from the beginning, so that the new position in Germany can be taken up as soon as possible.

Your family would like to move to Germany as well? We are of course happy to offer support and are committed to work towards a speedy family reunion.

Furthermore, if you have already received a negative decision from a German authority, we know what to do. We identify competently at which point the process failed and review it from scratch. Where necessary, we also argue for your right and your employee’s right in the responsible administrative court.
