Hints
Nationals of the Member States of the European Union (EU) have access to the German labour market because of their right of free movement. They may pursue an independent activity in Germany within the framework of their right of establishment. The same applies to other nationals of the European Economic Area (EEA) as well as nationals of Switzerland. Nationals of Bulgaria and Romania are still subject to transitional arrangements for the free movement of workers and freedom to provide services. You must obtain a work permit from the relevant employment agency before taking up employment. Family reunification: The spouse and children who are not yet of legal life have the right to family reunification. They are also entitled to work.
