ICT card

  • ICT stands for “intra-corporate transfer” and refers to the internal transfer of an employee within a company. 
  • The ICT card is issued when an employee from another EU country is moved by his/her company to a German branch of the company for at least 3 months.
  • It is necessary, among other things, that the employee has already been employed by the company for 6 months and is sent to Germany as a manager, specialist or trainee. 
  • It may be that the Federal Employment Agency (Bundesagentur für Arbeit) must approve the transfer.
