Germany – your next destination

We all know Germany is rich in history with towns where streets were laid out by the Romans, but it is also now attracting new titles such as Europe’s ‘coolest’ cities, and with new immigration discussion regarding increasing opportunities for foreign skilled workers, this may make the perfect combination for your next long distance move.

German officials are proposing a new approach to their immigration system in attempts to attract more skilled workers to fulfil a growing demand in their market.
