I am glad to join the posts. This is my first, and already a hot topic...I really need you help.
I came in Frankfurt in August 2003 as a graduated M.D. from Macedonia, to work in the University Clinic. Soon, I realized that I can not be given a licence from the proper authorities since I (Macedonia) am not from the EU. So I have been working as a research fellow untill now. Recently, I was offered a job (assistentarzt) - which I was aiming at since I came here - but, for which I must get a licence (berufserlaubnis).
The old law was too resprictive for a non-EU doctors like me. The only way for a doctors coming from outside of the EU to get medical licence in Germany was to a. get married to german woman/man, b. get a german passport in meantime, or c. get asylum in Germany. None of them is a valid option for me.
Now, there is the new "Zuwanderungsgesetz" which (in section 19) provides chances for a highly qualified specialists and experts to be given all necessary papers (including licences) if a german institution has absolute need for this expert. This is my only "theoretical" chance in my eyes. I got a layer for help, but did not do anything so far (3 months). How do I get to win this fight?
My questions are:
1. How to pull this thing out? It looks very loose...
2. What institutions to talk to?
3. Anyone with a similar experience?
Thank you very much
