EU Blue Card System

The European Union is finally moving towards a common policy on immigration. This is good news as the EU Commission has already stated that Economic growth needs to be maintained and in order to do that the European Union needs to gain skilled workers and talent from across the globe.

The European Union Blue Card system which has been inspired by the US green card and aptly named after the EU flag, attempts to combat complications of migrants wishing to work and live in the EU where currently there are over 27 immigration requirements to deal with.

The EU Blue card system will act as a single work permit and residence permit for migrants who are qualified, effectively creating a much easier way for skilled migrants that are hoping to work within the European Union.
