Working remote with job seeker visa in Germany
I am an Indian national, employed full-time currently. I got my German job seeker visa approved and planning to enter Germany for job search. Is it legal to remotely work for my Indian company while looking for job in Germany on job seeker visa?

In general, job seeker visas are intended for individuals actively seeking employment in the host country. While holding a job seeker visa in Germany, your primary focus should be on finding a job within the country. Working for an Indian company remotely during this period might be viewed as a violation of the terms of your visa. Germany has strict rules regarding work activities on different types of visas. If you engage in unauthorized employment while on a job seeker visa, it could have legal consequences and may affect your ability to obtain other types of visas in the future.
