  1. Spouse joining a EU Blue Card holder

    UX / UI does, and front end developer aswell. That's the position.   But I'd like to know about my question more, if anyone can help. 
  2. Spouse joining a EU Blue Card holder

    I actually got a second job offer that qualifies me for Blue Card. For IT proffesions it's 43k a year.
  3. Hi all,   I'm applying for a blue card, and I've read that my spouse can join me and start working immediately. I am not sure how the process for my spouse goes.    Does he need to apply for a family reunification visa in my home country? If yes, would it be possible to apply together on the same day ?     Or maybe he will come with me, apply for residence permit in Germany?    Please help me, especially those that have been through this before.
  4. Residence and employment visas for Germany

    Hello,   I'm moving to Germany, but I need to get my work visa first. There is new law coming to force from March 1st 2020, and it has made it easier for us with university degrees to get the visa easier and faster. Here's the full information:  https://www.make-it-in-germany.com/en/visa/kinds-of-visa/work/skilled-immigration-act/   My first question is: Is anyone going to apply for work visa with this new law, and what steps are you taking to start the process? I've read the information, but I want to compare notes.   My second question is about this section:   " The expedited procedure for qualified professionals also covers the qualified professional’s spouse and minor unmarried children, if the applications for their visas are submitted at the same time and if they meet the statutory requirements for the subsequent immigration of family members. "   What does "if the applications for their visas are submitted at the same time" mean?  My husband and I should apply together with my appointment? Shouldn't he have his own appointment? From what I've read and heard, the embassy only lets inside the person who has an appointment, but this might change from the 1st of March.   Can anyone clear this up for me, if possible?    The embassy will give information only after March 1st, but I would like to be prepared.

  6.   Would you please suggest some of these agencies?  Is nestpick.com a good option?    Also, if anyone has experience with the visa process, is there a minimal salary requirement for which the embassy can turn me back? How much is needed minimally for me to cover my expenses in Berlin?
  7. I thought of living in an Airbnb first, but they're expensive, it would mean a hard 6-8 months.  I am married, so my spouse will join me, and he'll start working too, so when we settle for good, I'm sure will find a better flat with better conditions.
  8. The company is located in Kreuzberg, so I should look for an apartment in that area for a shorter commute.    How expensive can I go on rent, with a 35.000 euros gross per year starting salary? I know it's not too much, but it's a start, and I can always look for something better in the meantime.  I believe after tax, I'd have around 2000 euros in hand, and I would like to save 800-1000 euros every month. Realistically, is it possible to cover my costs, and save? 
  9. Hey guys, thanks for all your responses, much appreciated!  Even though I lost hope a bit, I persisted with the job applications and I succeeded! I got a job offer today for a Graphic Designer position in Berlin, and I'm thinking of accepting.   I'm moving to Berlin!!! 
  10.   They applied online, just like I'm doing. And one of them gets 3500 euros gross per month, which is not bad.    When I say most companies don't require German, I mean that there are companies that advertise their jobs in English, and their employees are international, so the language of the company is English. A graphic designer can be employed in almost every company, it doesn't have to be an agency, and they don't have direct contact with the clients.    But I guess, if I happen to come toe to toe with a German speaking, graphic designer, who eligible to work in Germany, of course I'm going to be turned down.
  11. Thanks for your responses.    I had better hopes before this. I have friends that work in Berlin, and their experience has been positive.  There is a job seeking visa that I want to apply for, and come there to look for a job, but I'm afraid I'd be spending my entire savings, to come there, and not find a job.    
  12. I have had many interviews, with some of them I've gotten till the last phase, and then I get turned down. I even had a job offer back in September, but for some reason they ghosted me, and never sent me the contract.  I am ready to go onsite if necessary, and I don't mind covering the costs.  I have also been applying for UI/UX, and it's the same response.  Do you think if  I come to Germany and look for a job there, I'll have better chances?
  13. Hello there.  I've been trying for a year, non-stop, to find a job as a graphic designer, but no luck. I've been looking all over Germany, wherever there is an open position, I apply.  Most of them don't require German and they offer free classes. I live in Macedonia currently, and I need a visa for the right to work. But that's obtained easily now, especially for professionals like me, with 6 years of experience, and a Bachelor's degree. I always submit a CV, Cover Letter, and my portfolio.    What don't I know, or am I not doing right?    Please help!
