Come in!

Baden-Württemberg extends you a very warm welcome. As the number of people in work is decreasing continuously, we are wooing bright minds and encourage them in working in our federal state.

We are therefore offering extremely attractive living and working conditions to skilled and qualified personnel from all over the world.

Our Welcome Centers and the International Offices of the universities offer you individual careers advice and comprehensively inform you about the special offers by our higher institutes of education.

The Welcome Centers in the regions provide advice to all qualified and skilled staff who come from abroad to Baden-Württemberg, e.g. on the topics of residence permits, registration formalities, living, taxation and insurance as well as possible leisure time activities in the region.
