Does a self-employment work permit exist?

A self-employment work permit can be obtained in case an applicant has a profound business idea which will have positive impacts on the German economy.

The application process is relatively complex and professional help is strongly recommended.

A good consultant can also help with identifying opportunities to ease and accelerate the application process.

Short cutting situations can especially apply

  • if the applicant has completed his studies in Germany (21-2a) or
  • if the applicant is only acting as a freelancer (21-2).
