Hi there,

I have also a question on expatriation allowance.

If I am hired from the Commission in Brussels, but I am French and was recruited from Germany (private sector), If I  get a job i the Agecy in Frankfurt (Germany) , will I be still entiteled to the expatriation allowance if I go back to work for the Frankfurt Agency after 3 years?

Many thanks in advance for your feedback.

Hi Ron,

You would have to check this with the Paymaster Offcie (PMO) to get a confirmation in writing to be really really sure. Yet, from my knowledge, I would say yes, you would be entitled to the expatriation allowance if you, as a French national, moved back to Germany to work for an agency for example.

Hi Ron,

if you worked in Germany for the last 5.5 years (from date of taking duties) you will not have it, if you have worked only 3 years, then you will have the Expatriation Allowance (16%)

I do not get. I was working

I do not get. I was working in Germany for 3 years before being recruited from the Commission in Brussels. If I go to Germany to work for an Agency, but I am recruited while working for the Commission in Brussels does not it mean that I am recruited from Brussels? and I am not a German citizen.....
