I have an offer from a German employer and the salary is 63K Euros. I am in India right now, and want to understand the correct visa process and ability to work in Germany.
During a conversation with an HR person, I was told to obtain a travel visa which is valid for 3 months. When this visa is granted, I'm supposed to travel to Germany and complete my joining formalities. After that, they will initiate a process for obtaining my Blue Card, which will allow me to remain in Germany and work.
I have not heard of this procedure before. I did some research on the Blue Card, and it looked alright, but I'm still concerned.
Here are the answers that I want to know.
- What kind of visa would be given for travel from India to Germany? Is it the same as Schengen visa?
- Is this visa process legitimate? By that I mean, the process of getting a visa to travel from India to Germany and then applying for a Bluecard.
- How much money would be required to be shown in account to obtain the visa for travel from India to Germany?
