Blue Card prolongation: salary changes

The blue card salary levels change every year. This brings up the question of the salary level has to be risen in case of the extension of a Blue Card permit.

The answer to this question is negative: Once a Blue Card is issued, the employee can continue working on the salary level which was defined when he got is original Blue Card.

However, if the employee decides to change his job, the authorities will have to check if the salary is matching the new levels.

Exceptions might apply after certain time spans (§ 19 a Abs. 4 BeschV).
