EU working on ‘blue card’ knowledge migrants
European Commissioner Franco Frattini (Justice) is working on an EU work permit for highly educated persons from outside the region, according to het Financieele Dagblad. Allegedly the validity period of the permit would be five years. Knowledge migrants from outside the Union can move between Member States more easily during that period. According to the plan presented by Frattini, knowledge workers could after two years in one EU country start working in another EU country without any problems. After that they could move every year. The arrange-ment being prepared by the European Commission is quite similar to the one applicable to the American ‘green card’. Indeed, the EU work permit will probably be presented as a ‘blue card’, the color being a reference to the European flag. When the arrangement is presented -probably some time this autumn- it must become clear whether all sectors of the labor market will be opened for highly educated people from outside the EU, or only those sectors suffering from a shortage of such staff.
