Live and work in the European Union!

The EU Blue Card is Europe’s answer to the US Green Card.

The EU Blue Card is a work- and residence permit for non-EU/EEA nationals. The European Blue Card provides comprehensive socio-economic rights and a path towards permanent residence and EU citizenship.

The European initiative has a number of distinctive qualities that will help Europe become the world’s most favourite migration destination:

  • Working and salary conditions equal to nationals
  • Free movement within the Schengen area
  • Entitlement to a series of socio-economic rights (e.g. unemployment benefits)
  • Favourable conditions for family reunification
  • Permanent residence perspective
  • Freedom of association

Conditions

Three key conditions are to be met in order to request the EU Blue Card.

  • Non-EU citizenship
  • Educated or professionally experienced
  • Employment contract or binding employment offer
