New minimum salary for Blue Card Holders in Germany



The German government released their annual review announcing new minimum salary requirements for Blue Card holders going into effect on January 1, 2014. First-year Blue Card holders must earn a minimum of €47,600 annually. Applicants who will work in a shortage occupation must be paid at least €37,128 annually assuming the relevant conditions are met. An annual salary of less than €47,600 for those applicants who will work in a shortage occupation is only permitted if the employer receives consent from local labor authorities, or if the applicant has a degree from a German university.
