Frequently asked questions

1.           Which are the basic requirements to do Work and Travel in Germany?

You are currently enrolled at a college / university  – you must be a student. You present a current certificate of enrollment at university.

2.           When can I get a vacation job for foreigners in Germany?

Vacation jobs are offered throughout the calendar year. As a foreigner, however, you can only work in Germany during those periods when there are also official semester breaks at your university. Usually, most students use the long summer break to participate. The winter vacations are also attractive.

3.           How much do I earn in a vacation job?

The German minimum wage also applies to a vacation job (from July 1, 2023: 10.45 euros). In some jobs, more is paid. There are often additional benefits such as tips or shares in tips, free or discounted meals, or free or discounted accommodation.

4.           How well do I have to speak German for a vacation job?

For some jobs (for example, in a restaurant) you need knowledge of German at least at level A2, for other jobs (for example, in production) you do not need German language skills. So you can apply without any knowledge of German. However, if you speak some German, you will be able to find your way around Germany better. In each job posting we also explain exactly what German or English language skills are required.

5.           Do I need to speak German to participate in Work and Travel in Germany?

Some of our positions require German skills, e.g. when working in restaurant or tourism business. Others do not require German skills – they require English at B2 level at least.

6.           Who pays for my travel from home country to Germany and back?

You will have to pay for your journey to Germany and your return from Germany yourself. In some cases your employer might pick you up from the airport or nearest train / bus station. You will receive all necessary information about this later during the application process.

7.           What happens after the application?

We will review your application within a few days and you will be notified if you are eligible for the program. In particular, we will check whether you are a student and whether your documents are complete. If your documents are complete and we consider you to be eligible for the program, you will receive a direct message, informing you about all further steps.
