Serbia is second in the world by the number of medical workers who arrived in Germany
Serbia is the second in the world by the number of medical workers who have gone to Germany in the past five years.
Although the number of departures from Serbia decreased during the pandemic, the total influx to Germany is higher, Deutsche Welle (DW) reports.
During the pandemic, Germany also hired additional foreign medical workers.
This was revealed after the German government answered the official question of the parliamentary club of the Left, according to the “Editorial Network of Germany”.
According to these data, last year, 759 nurses and technicians were invited to the country within the “Triple-Win” Program of the German Federal Employment Agency and the Society for International Cooperation.
234 of them are from Vietnam, 210 from the Philippines, 156 from Bosnia and Herzegovina, 127 from Tunisia and 32 from Serbia.
The total increase in the number compared to the year before is 30 percent.
After completing all the formalities, 593 people came to Germany last year.
However, in 2019 there were fewer of them – a total of 453. Based on that program, 2,813 foreigners have come to Germany since 2016.
Most of them are from the Philippines, as 1,294 workers in the field of medical care come from that Asian island country.
Next on the list is Serbia with 759 nurses and technicians, followed by Bosnia and Herzegovina with 644, Vietnam with 84 and Tunisia with 32 people.
