I have a job offer from a small software startup from Kassel, Germany. I'm a software developer with 4+ years of experience and have a relevant Degree in Computer Science Engineering. My Visa appointment is next week. My employer has not filed for FEA approval, nor has he published the job posting to any job portals in Germany. Because I was already working as a freelance software developer (through upwork), the employer directly offered me a permanent position (1 year contract that will be renewed later).
My Questions :
- Will not having FEA pre approval affect my visa approval?
- My salary is above the blue card norms for IT Specialist category, will this compensate for not having the FEA pre approval?
- Is it normal to get the FEA approval after entering Germany?
What do you think?
I'm from India btw,
Thanks in advance for any advice
