Highly Qualified

For highly qualified people in shortage occupations such as engineers, academics, doctors and similar skilled workers in the information and communication fields an even lower salary border exists.  In such case the gross salary border is € 38.688 per annum.   A pre-condition proof is not necessary for this instance unless the working conditions are similar.  In professions where there is a ‘special interest of non-EU citizens’ the salary border is lower.  As for the mathematician, scientist, engineer, doctor or IT skilled worker there is a gross salary border of € 38.688 per year in order to receive the EU Blue card.
