The Federal Employment Agency ("Bundesagentur für Arbeit") offers a perspective to foreign skilled workers in Germany. However, immigration from countries outside of the European Union, the European Economic Area and Switzerland - meaning from the so-called third countries - must also be responsible regarding labor market and integration policy.
For this reason, an overview of professions in which the employment of third-country nationals in Germany is basically possible has been developed on the legal basis of Section 6 (2) Sentence 1 No. 2 of the Employment Regulation ("Beschäftigungsverordnung"), the so-called Whitelist.
