Tax administration service - Recognize foreign professional qualifications as career qualification

Service Description

In Thuringia, employment in the civil service by establishing a civil service relationship is tied by law to the possession of certain professional qualifications. If you have acquired professional qualifications abroad that enable you to work in the public sector there, you must have these qualifications recognized in Thuringia (as a career qualification) in order to be employed in Germany in a civil service position corresponding to your previous profession. To this end, the equivalence of your professional qualifications with a Thuringian career qualification must be established.
