Working in Germany can be worthwhile for many people

Many people decide to emigrate to Germany because the average salary in Germany is often significantly higher than in their home countries.

In the following, I will provide an overview of the potential earnings in various professions in Germany. Please note that these figures are rough estimates.

Success in Germany and the actual salary you can earn in your profession depend on many different factors.

One essential requirement for non-German citizens is obtaining a German work permit ( read more here).

Without it, employment in Germany is generally not feasible.

Not everyone can work in Germany

If you’re aiming to work in Germany, there are specific conditions that must be met beforehand. The requirements vary depending on your nationality.

For instance, the conditions differ if you are a citizen of the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland, or a third-country.

To understand these distinctions and learn more about the German work permit process, I invite you to read my detailed article: ‘German Work Permit‘.

And I can give you this advice:

If you intend to move to Germany and work in Germany, then you should be able to speak German before you come.
