Germany is significant in the context of getting a study or working visa. It has an established economy with leading figures worldwide. Meanwhile, it is of global importance in regional and international issues that are of greater interest to the German public. Germany\\\'s foreign policy ensures a people-to-people connection with non-European countries.

In this regard, Germany recently announced the Germany Opportunity Card for non-European countries. This is a new program to attract people living outside the country. Most countries announce such scholarships to spread their democratic values and culture to other parts of the world.

This program will allow them to live in Germany for the next 12 months to look for a job. So, you don\\\'t need a job offer or a permanent work contract beforehand. You can apply for the Opportunity Card through the German embassy in your country starting from June 1, 2024. The program will be open for applications on that date.

Moreover, Gulhaze is one of the credible consultants and providers for Pakistani students seeking to benefit from the study abroad scholarship from the initial process to the final selection.

The German Opportunity Card is similar to the German job seeker Visa, also known as Germany\\\'s working visa. This card allows applicants from non-European Union countries to take advantage of this opportunity. You can also work 20 hours a week part-time with this card. 

To make sure your application goes well, there are certain things you need. You must have at least 6 points to get the Card. These points are based on your education, age, experience, language skills, and other factors. You can find more information about the Germany Opportunity Card below.
