Germany, which has been suffering from severe manpower shortages for years, has always sought to fish out the manpower it lacks in European Union countries.

But a change in its immigration policies will now make the arrival of non-European citizens more flexible.

In early September, German Federal Minister of Labor and Social Affairs Hubertus Heil revealed plans to create an “opportunity card” (Sanchengarde in German) with a points-based system.

It is a kind of “green card” similar to that in the United States, the purpose of which is to attract specialized specialists.
