Permission to use the professional title of midwife by non-automatic recognition granting

Service Description

The profession of midwifery is regulated in Germany. This means that in order to work as a midwife in Germany, you need a state permit. With the permit, you may use the professional title "midwife" and work in the profession.

Even with a professional qualification from abroad, you can obtain the state permit from the competent body in Germany. To obtain the permit, you must have your foreign professional qualification recognized.

In the recognition procedure, the competent body compares your professional qualification from abroad with the German professional qualification and checks the equivalence. The equivalence of the professional qualification is an important prerequisite for the issuance of the state permit. In addition to the equivalence of the professional qualification, you must fulfill other requirements for the issuance of the permit. Further requirements are, for example, sufficient German language skills and health suitability.

If your professional qualification is automatically recognized, other regulations apply.
You can also submit the application for the procedure from abroad.
