I have a situation and I would appreciate your help.

I had an offer from a startup company in Germany and after they mailed me the signed contract, I went to the German embassy and applied for a blue card visa and got it with the company's name printed on it.

After that I received another opportunity, which is far better than the previous one. Now I want join the new company. So what will be the process to change the company on the visa? Do I need that?

Is there any paperwork that should be done in my current case?


You cannot switch your employer on a Blue Card at this stage without petitioning the authorities. You will need to apply for a new Blue Card with the new employer.

Blue Cards are tied to the employer for the first two years, unless changed by petition.
