Most trafficked women do not have a regular residence permit for Germany. Many people therefore believe that all prostitutes without legal residency status are trafficked women.

This is not true. As in many other professions there are people working in prostitution who do not have a residence permit.



It is very difficult for people from non-E.U. countries to enter Germany for work purposes. Only people from certain professions (computer scientists, specialty cooks, etc.) are able to obtain residence permits.



the woman may be committing a criminal offense if she is living and working without a visa in Germany. (Treat all information confidentially).
