Permission to use the professional title of masseuse and medical bath attendant in case of professional qualification from EU/EEA/Switzerland Issuance

Service Description

The profession of masseur and medical bath attendant is regulated in Germany. This means that in order to be able to work as a masseuse and medical bath attendant in Germany, you need a state permit. With the permit you are allowed to use the professional title "Masseurin und medizinische Bademeisterin" or "Masseur und medizinischer Bademeister" and to work in the profession.

Even with a professional qualification from the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA) or Switzerland, 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 granting 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 does not originate from the EU, the EEA or Switzerland, other regulations apply.

You can also submit the application for the procedure from abroad.
