Company specialist permit: definition and requirements

A company specialist permit is a work permit granted to employees with a company and job specific knowledge. A university degree is not necessarily required in this case.

The main requirements for a company specialist permit are that:

  • the employee is being offered a German employment contract;
  • he carries a very detailed and job specific knowledge and
  • that this specific knowledge is reflecting in the employee's salary (which therefore needs to be ca. 10 % higher than the standard salary in the same field).
