Berlin The Federal Employment Agency has suspended the recruitment of Brazilian nursing staff to Germany through a two-year placement agreement.

The current Brazilian government has expressed concern about the placement agreement and the surplus of nursing staff in Brazil that was originally communicated by the Brazilian side, a spokeswoman for the Federal Ministry of Labor in Berlin said today.

The Federal Agency (BA) worked on the placement of Brazilian nursing staff until the end of 2023, including through this placement agreement with the Nursing Chamber of the Federal Nursing Council.

First they had World informed about the suspension of the agreement. Citing a report from Brazilian media, the newspaper reported complaints about dealings with the nursing team.

During a trip to Latin America in the summer of 2022, Foreign Minister Annalena Baerbock (Greens) and Labor Minister Hubertus Heil (SPD) also initiated greater cooperation with the Brazilian nursing team.

Brazil is the largest country in South America and is already Germany’s most important trading partner in that country. According to Heil, the Federal Employment Agency (BA) considered it possible to recruit up to 700 nurses per year. According to the local professional association, there are 2.5 million nurses in Brazil. BA has been recruiting Brazilian specialists for the German job market since 2018.

According to the Labor Secretariat, the reason for suspending the agreement with the Brazilian Chamber is that recruitment should not occur at the expense of the labor market in Brazil. According to Heil’s ministry, Brazilian concerns about a not-so-large surplus of nursing staff in Brazil have not yet been dispelled.

The decision to suspend the agreement is in accordance with the principles of fairer mobility, according to which there should be no recruitment contrary to the will of the country in question and the loss of qualified workers needed in the country of origin should be avoided. © dpa/kna/aerzteblatt.de
