Read the latest issue of Mobility Matters - Germany’s Fachkraefteeinwanderungsgesetz: Not Just a Tongue Twister but a Quantum Leap in Immigration

Germany’s recent draft law reforming the country’s immigration rules, Fachkraefteeinwanderungsgesetz (hereafter, “FEG”) is indeed a “tongue twister”. But it has very simple goals: (i) increase opportunities for skilled foreign labor to enter Germany to work; (ii) simplify the rules and processes for employers seeking to bring in skilled foreign labor; and (iii) address the issues around a shrinking domestic German workforce.  KPMG professionals Sebastian Klaus and Kim Hammer observe that the FEG entails one of the most important reforms of Germany’s immigration system in years. Indeed, if enacted, the FEG is expected to bring the German immigration system to the next level, with much-needed improvements and far-reaching enhancements that will hopefully better serve the hiring and talent development needs of German employers and the labor market access needs of foreign skilled workers, while also supporting Germany’s socio-economic interests. It is important that immigration counsel and advisers, global mobility professionals charged with the immigration affairs of their employees going overseas, and the employees themselves, understand what the FEG means for them.
