Employment and posting of EU citizens


As a citizen of the EU Member States as well as Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland, you are entitled to freedom of movement and can take up employment in Germany without further requirements.

Since May 2011, the EU member states Poland, Hungary, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Slovenia, Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, which joined in 2004, have also enjoyed unrestricted freedom of movement for workers. For the member states Romania and Bulgaria, which joined in 2007, this has been in force since January 2014, for Croatia, which joined in 2013, since 1 July 2015.

For entry: valid passport or identity card

For citizens of the Eastern European accession countries, Germany had made use of the possibility of continuing transitional provisions for the free movement of workers under the Accession Treaty (so-called 2+3+2 regulation) in order to prevent distortions on the labour market. These were gradually relaxed. The possibility of postings to Germany in the construction, building cleaning and interior decoration sectors was also limited.
