As reported earlier, the German immigration authorities were requiring an official evaluation of university diplomas submitted in support of EU Blue Card applications.

However, it has been confirmed that the focus on the recognition continues to be on the “H+” mark for the respective university where the degree in question is comparable in the ANABIN database.  The degree will only need to be recognized by the Central Office for Foreign Education (ZAB) only when this does not apply.
