Accordingly, rules for non-EU foreigners should be relaxed. Anwar Albrnaoy from Nigeria working in a bakery in Reutlingen. The deportation of refugees during the duration of their vocational training should not be possible in future, according to the plans of the Federal Government.

The ruling factions of the CDU, CSU and SPD have allegedly agreed on the influx of foreign skilled workers. As the Süddeutsche Zeitung reports, the Federal Ministry of the Interior has given the appropriate draft bill in coordination with the other ministries. Previously, the three priority ministries for Home Affairs, Labor and Economic Affairs had agreed. The Cabinet decision is scheduled for 19 December.

The draft, which is available to the newspaper, provides for a relaxation of the rules for foreigners from non-EU countries who want to work in Germany. In the future, anyone who has an employment contract „and a recognized qualification“ may work here. The previously required test of whether a German or an EU citizen would be eligible for the position, should be eliminated.

Anyone who has vocational training may also enter for a limited period of time to find a job. This regulation will initially apply for five years on a trial basis. It is also possible a stay to qualify further. In addition, „a limited possibility“ is to be created to „recognize“ under certain conditions, his vocational training acquired abroad only after entry into Germany. According to the newspaper report, rules are also loosened for so-called educational toleration: It states that apprentices are not deported during their apprenticeship and may work here for two years after graduation.

Even when dealing with those who are tolerated, ie refugees whose deportation is only suspended, there is an agreement according to the newspaper. The draft provides „clear criteria for a reliable status“ for those who are tolerant, who work, earn a living and are well integrated. The prerequisite for this two-year „employment toleration“ is therefore that those affected have been employed for at least 35 hours per week for one and a half years.
