Working as a Foreign Pharmacist in Germany

In order to work as a pharmacist in Germany, you will need governmental approval, a so-called "approbation" or a permit to practice the pharmacist profession. Decisions concerning the recognition of pharmaceutical degrees and the granting of approbations or the license to practice are made by the competent authorities in each of the individual German states. You can apply for recognition of your pharmacy degree regardless of your nationality or your current residency status.
