Jan Bittner, head of the Economy and Law Department of the German Embassy to Georgia, revealed that a bill which will give Georgians that are highly-qualified the opportunity to search for jobs in Germany had been introduced to the Bundestag by the German government.
While speaking to newsmen, Mr. Bittner said with the bill on board, Georgians seeking a job in Germany are only required to provide proof of their education and qualifications. IT specialists are an exception in this regard as they would be allowed to take up jobs without a diploma, he confirmed.
Though Bittner restrained from providing more details because the bill has not been adopted, he mentioned that cooks who are masters of national dishes will also be able to work in the country.
The Georgian workers are expected to obtain a visa as well as have a signed job contract.
With this development in view, Bittner said Germany already has regulations that will address Georgian organized crime in place.
Germany and Georgia have visa-free regime rules that allow Georgian tourists to be in Germany for 90 days within any 180 day period. This visa-free regime is often abused and is a significant contributor to Georgian deportations from Germany. Many Georgians often seek to remain in Germany beyond the permitted period. In 2018, 1085 people were deported to Georgia by Germany – many of these are people who stay beyond the permitted period. Asylum seekers are also a significant part of the numbers deported.
As Germany prepares to receive waves of skilled workers from Georgia, the country is taking necessary measures to shut out organized crime groups.
