Non-Regulated Professions

Non-Regulated Professions
  • Most of the professions in Germany belong to non-regulated professions. For these professions there are no legal regulations for the exercise of the profession, therefore no recognition procedure is required.
  • Qualified job seekers from third countries need the recognition of the foreign professional qualification or the comparability of the university degree in order to be granted a visa.
  • In this case, it is advisable to apply to the ZAB for an individual assessment of the foreign university degree.
  • Unregulated professions are, for example, biologist, physicist, linguist, mathematician, economist, journalist, business economist, computer scientist or baker.
