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
- the employee carries a very detailed and job specific knowledge and
- that the 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)
