The procedure, which also includes the recognition of foreign qualifications, is carried out within specified deadlines between the authorised company and the HWCP team.

The Accelerated Skilled Worker Procedures option is part of the ‘Hamburg Welcome Center for Professionals’ section of the Migration Office (Amt für Migration) of the Ministry of the Interior and Sport (Amt für Migration der Behörde für Inneres und Sport).
