DeFa - German agency for health care professionals

While we search for your employer and handle the bureaucracy, you can focus on your mission: giving care and help to people.

The organization

DeFa is a public healthcare agency located in Saarbruecken, Germany. It is funded by the Federal Ministry of Health (BMG).


Our goal is to fast-track the recruitment process of nursing and care professionals to Germany. Our core task is to bundle and speed up the administrative procedures associated with recruitment.

In addition, we connect applicants and employers, accredit our partners, and ensure adherence to social standards and support the smooth integration of health care personnel in Germany. We support you in all administrative steps, such as the visa application and approval, and the recognition of degrees, just to name a few.

Why should you come to Germany?

Germany is a safe and cosmopolitan country. It offers a very high quality of life with a health care system that is one of the best in the world.

High living standards, the education system, and culture are further reasons why Germany has become a popular immigration destination.

We look forward to your application! Email workinhealth(at)!
