High-Skilled Talent: the Future of Michigan

The state of Michigan recognizes skilled immigrants as vital to the economic health of the state today and in the future.  Governor Rick Snyder leads the nation’s governors in his support for welcoming immigrants, including high-skilled immigrants and immigrant entrepreneurs.

Michigan Professional Licensing Guides

These licensing guides provide information for eleven in-demand professions. Each year thousands of immigrants coming to the U.S. are already trained in these professions, but must also invest time and resources to secure state-level licenses in order to resume practicing their profession. The Professional Licensing Guides explain what foreign-trained immigrants need to know before applying for a professional license in Michigan. The intention is to help skilled immigrants prepare efficiently to license in accordance with  the high professional standards of our state.
