The EU Blue Card is close to a temporary permit; however, the validity is longer than temporary Residence permit. It is aimed at non-EU nationals that are highly skilled and have job opportunities in the EU. These types of individuals typically have a master’s degree or higher and you are more likely to get an EU Blue Card when having a mathematics, engineering, technology or science background.
If you’d like to work in one of the EU member countries, EU Blue Card may be the right option for you.
This card is valid for a four-year period, after which you automatically get permanent residence providing you maintain work. Even though it is valid for four years, it is possible to obtain permanent residency after 33 months. Individuals can get permanent residence when speaking or understand the official language of the country they choose to settle, after only 21 months when owning an EU Blue card.
With an EU Blue Card, spouses can also live in EU Country they have chosen, however only after obtaining permanent residence can the spouse apply for a job inside Germany as an example if thats the Country they are first applying for.
