Chancenkarte - the new German Work Visa for non-EU (Indians)


The Chancenkarte is a proposed point based immigration system to ease the immigration process and reduce the time required for a move to Germany, applicable for the high in demand skilled profiles. The Chancenkarte is expected to make it easier and quicker for non-EU citizens to come to Germany to find work and get a residence permit, rather than having to apply from abroad.
