‘Recognition in Germany’ is the new information portal for the German government's Recognition Law. This portal provides up-to-date information on the legal basis and procedures for recognition of foreign professional qualifications. If you would like to have a professional qualification acquired abroad recognised in Germany, you can use this portal to find the competent body and your local contact centre.
