One difficulty for the integration of migrants’ in to the host countries labor market is transferability of human capital. Often transferability is reduced by bureaucratic barriers. This paper investigates a policy change which aims to reduce bureaucratic barriers in recognition process of foreign certificates in Germany. We use detailed survey data in a difference-in-differences identification design to investigate the effects of the reform on application rate and on subsequent wages of the affected migrants.
