Applying for a temporary licence to practise the veterinary profession

Description

If you have completed training as a veterinarian, but do not have a license to practice medicine, and only want to practice the veterinary profession temporarily, you need a permit.

The permit entitles you to use the professional title "veterinarian".

The permit may be limited to certain activities and employment positions.

It may only be granted or extended revocably and only up to a total duration of veterinary activity of no more than 4 years.

  • For a permit to temporarily practice the veterinary profession, you must submit an application in writing or electronically to the competent authority of the federal state in which the veterinary profession is to be exercised.
  • The competent authority decides on the permit after examining your documents.

The application for a temporary professional permit must be submitted in writing to the competent authority.

  • You must sign it by hand or provide it with a qualified electronic signature. The necessary forms are available for download or you can obtain them from the responsible office.
  • The competent authority will notify you within 4 weeks whether your application is complete or whether you need to provide further documents.
  • You will receive a written notification of the temporary professional permit.

Please contact the competent authority of the country in which you wish to operate.

Ministry of Economic Affairs, Science and Digitalization of the State of Saxony-Anhalt

In order to obtain a permit for the temporary exercise of the veterinary profession,

  • you must provide proof of completed training for the veterinary profession
  • you must not be guilty of conduct resulting in unworthiness or unreliability for the exercise of the veterinary profession
  • you must not be unsuitable for the practice of veterinary profession from a health point of view
  • you must have the necessary German language skills for the job at level B2 according to the Common European Framework of Reference for Languages and
  • you need proof of a specific job.

As an alternative to proof of German language skills, an expert interview examination by the Ministry of the Environment, Agriculture and Energy is possible.

The following documents must be submitted:

  • application for authorisation to practise the veterinary profession on a temporary basis;
  • proof of nationality (certified copy of identity card, passport or proof of identity),
  • proof of professional qualification (veterinary diploma, certificate or other veterinary evidence of formal qualifications),
  • if applicable, certified proof of recognition of asylum, permission under the Residence Act or possession of a naturalisation guarantee
  • signed curriculum vitae in tabular form: up-to-date, concise and with a detailed, time-loop presentation of the training path and professional career
  • Certificate from the future employer about the possibility of employment and justification (e.g. employment contract, needs test)
  • Proof of impunity, certificate of good conduct for the submission of an authority (This proof may not be more than 3 months old when the application is submitted.)
  • Medical health certificate, according to which you are suitable for practicing the veterinary profession from a health point of view (no official medical certificate required, this proof may not be more than 3 months old when applying).)

The documents may be addressed to the competent authority without any specific formal requirements.

Note: Foreign language documents must be enclosed in German translation. The translation must be carried out by an officially sworn in document interpreter. Diplomas, certificates of veterinary training must be submitted in a certified translation.

The procedure costs money. The competent authority will inform you about the costs. The cost often depends on the effort involved in processing.

In addition, additional costs may arise (e.B. for translations or certifications). These costs vary from person to person.

The costs of the proceedings are based on the current General Schedule of Fees of the State of Saxony-Anhalt (AllGO LSA).

The application must be made before you work as a veterinarian.

A decision on the application will be taken within 3 months of the submission of the complete documents.

You can take legal action against the decision of the competent authority. The decision is then reviewed. Details can be found in the notice of appeal at the end of your decision. We recommend that you first talk to the competent authority before taking action against the decision.

If you cannot be granted a licence to practise the veterinary profession on a temporary basis, the competent authority shall examine whether the exercise of certain veterinary activities can nevertheless be authorised. The authority will contact you in this case.

Veterinary action prior to the granting of a licence to practise the veterinary profession on a temporary basis may lead to criminal consequences.

All veterinarians who practice their profession in Saxony-Anhalt belong to the State Chamber of Veterinary Surgeons of Saxony-Anhalt.

Each member of the Chamber must register with the State Chamber of Veterinary Surgeons within one month of commencing his professional activity.
