Germany is an economically and socially prosperous European state, so it is not surprising that many residents of Eastern Europe are planning to leave for Germany for permanent residence, if given the opportunity.
Since the immigration policy of Germany today is quite strict, there are not so many reasons for immigrants to get the opportunity to live in the territory of this state permanently. According to German law, foreigners have only five good reasons to legally enter Germany and stay there for a long time. First of all, such a reason is family reunification - when a foreigner comes to Germany to live together with parents, children or spouse who are citizens of this country. You can leave for Germany for permanent residence even if you fit one of the categories of specialists eligible for participation in the green card program for IT specialists. The fact is that today Germany is in dire need of highly qualified specialists in several high-tech industries - laser, nuclear, and computer. But for this you need to find an employer in Germany in advance who will accept you to work and will be ready to issue a documentary challenge. However, sometimes specialists from other industries can find a suitable job for themselves in Germany - for example, if you are a high-class chef of Russian cuisine, you will have an extremely high chance of finding a job for yourself in Germany. Specialists from the field of art and sports are also in demand. If you have enough funds to open your own business in Germany, you can use this right and move to this country for permanent residence. Many young people use another way to obtain a residence permit in Germany - they simply go there to take a course at a German university, and after receiving a diploma, they immediately try to find a job in their specialty. Less commonly, foreigners move to Germany for humanitarian reasons - for example, in connection with the granting of political asylum. Very often, the German authorities refuse to grant political asylum to foreigners if they cannot present really compelling evidence that they are being seriously persecuted in their homeland. The reason for moving to Germany is often the ethnic origin of foreigners - for example, if they are ethnic Germans or ethnic Jews. From a practical point of view, the most expedient option for moving to Germany for permanent residence is the conclusion of an employment contract with a German company or admission to one of the German universities.
