I have a chemical Engineering degree and I am working in IT as a programmer Analyst since 7 years on H1B in USA (Indian National).

Do I qualify for Germany Job Seeker Visa?

Is there any chance for denial because my education is not relevant to my work experience?

1 Answer 1


For the German Blue Card you need either

  • a job offer in the field of your university degree


  • a job offer in a field you have at least 5 years experience in

Not necessarily both. See § 19a AufenthG, Abs. 1.1a, relevant the last word: oder ("or")
