This session aims to cover the need-to-knows for relocating tech talent from non EU countries to Berlin with principle focus on visa requirements and process.

It is estimated that Berlin’s tech scene will generate[masked] tech jobs by 2020. Given that the pool of local tech talent currently numbers[masked], there’s an increasingly strong business case for companies wising up to relocating talent from beyond the borders of the EU.

Yet securing that work visa for those candidates seems a bureaucratic and costly nightmare.

In this session we aim to untangle the web of paperwork to our audience of HR and Hiring Managers, breaking the relocation process down into manageable steps:

Which candidates are eligible for a working visa?
Which candidates are eligible for a blue card?
What’s even the difference between a blue card and a visa?
What forms should be filled out and where should they be sent?
What are the blockers and how can we overcome them? shares insights they have gained in relocating non EU tech candidates to Berlin over the past 2 years. Note, this is simply sharing experience and should not be considered legal advice.
