Residence titles for employees and family members – initial procedure

In order to evaluate the precise price, company specific information and additional factors are relevant, which we are happy to discuss with you. Ask for the price by clicking the button ‘price request’.

You want to send an employee from a non-EU/EEA country to Germany on secondment or hire them locally. The employee and any family members need to acquire the necessary permissions from an immigration point of view.

Legal services are provided by KPMG Law (Rechtsanwaltsgesellschaft mbH (company information).

Employees from non-EU/EEA countries cannot simply start working in Germany. This also applies if the employee is not given a German employment contract. As a rule, they must apply for a work visa before arriving in Germany. This allows them to enter the country and to start work for as long as the visa is valid. In order to stay longer and continue their employment in Germany, they will need a long-term residence title (e.g. residence permit [Aufenthaltserlaubnis], EU Blue Card). Similar rules apply to family members.

Rather than dealing directly with the immigration status of your staff and their family members, leave the entire residency application procedure to us. We will take care of it.
 

Our offer includes:
  • Initial immigration assessment
  • Support with application procedures
  • Preparation of applications
  • Instructions on the procedure
  • Examination of legal issues
  • Validation of permissions
  • Monitoring deadlines

Immigration matters often require translations, legalisation or apostilles. We can coordinate and take care of these together with our partners within the KPMG network of independent member firms or other subcontractors. The same applies for accompanying people to local authorities in Germany. 

It is important to us that costs are predictable and plannable. An engagement should not end with disputes over costs. This is why our fee is a flat fee for cases of average complexity. We will notify you of any additional expenses upfront. Invoicing occurs after the conclusion of procedures.

The preparation of work contracts or comparable employment agreements for the deployment of the employee is not included as standard service. However, you will be able to benefit from our expertise in this area. The arrangement of employment contracts as well as general labour law issues is part of KPMG Law's core expertise and can be offered additionally.
