ZAV: Central Placement Abroad and for Skilled Workers

Foreign students may take up employment in Germany if they have a residence title (visa, residence permit), which entitles them to do so. The residence title is issued by the foreign representation (embassy/consulate) or the Ausländerbehörde.

For study-related internships, the foreign mission or the foreigners authority must obtain the agreement of the ZAV. Here you can find information on study-related internships for foreign students in Germany, as well as information on where you, as a company, can offer such internships.
