With the implementation of the European Union's Intra Corporate Transfer Directive Aug. 1, two new residence permits became available for managers, specialists, and trainees in Germany, Theresa Anna Rzeppa, manager with PricewaterhouseCoopers in Frankfurt, said in a Sept. 28 webinar.
There is one residence permit for stays in Germany over 90 days and one notification procedure for stays up to 90 days, PricewaterhouseCoopers said in a September newsletter.
Germany's Federal Office for Migration and Refugees has already released the short-term mobility ICT notification form. Application forms for the ICT and ICT Mobile Card are also available, PWC said.
In the September 2017 newsletter, PricewaterhouseCoopers advised that employers pay particular attention to two requirements for application:
The ICT Directive is intended to ease the movement of highly qualified non-EU/EEA nationals into and within the European Union and the European Economic Area. Work and residence permits are limited to three years for managers and specialists and one year for trainees. Managers and specialists must have worked for their employers for at least nine months, trainees for at least six months to qualify for ICT permits. Holders of ICT permits can apply for a Mobile ICT Permit allowing them to work in an EU/EEA country other than the one into which they were initially transferred.
As of April 2017, 11 out of 25 EU member countries had implemented the ICT Directive. The U.K., Denmark, and Ireland have decided not to implement the directive.
