Visa application services / business immigration

Shareholders must come to Germany to register a company. Therefore, we issue an invitation for our client to obtain a business visa.

As soon as the company is set up, shareholders may apply for a business visa for a period from one month to one year. Two months after the company is registered, shareholders, who also appear as directors, may apply for a residence permit for themselves and their family members (provided that the company is active), which will allow them to apply for German citizenship in future.

It is worth noting that foreign entrepreneurs are given priority compared to other immigrants. On August 1, 2012 the new German Immigration Law came into effect, which supports business immigration to the country. It ensures that business immigration to Germany is possible, if there are economic benefits for the country.

Advantages of the Immigration Law:

Company formation can allow you to have a residence permit for up to 3 years. If your business is considered beneficial for the country’s economy, you can be granted the permanent resident status.
