Advisers with expat clients moving between European countries can now get answers to tricky immigration questions via a new EU website.
The European Commissioner for Home Affairs, Cecilia Malmström, has launched the EU Immigration Portal, which is a website with hands-on information for those interested in moving to the EU.
The site is also directed at those who are already living and working in an EU country and would like to move to another member state.
Commenting on the launch, Commissioner Malmström said: "Many people who want to move to the European Union do not know what possibilities exist, how to apply for a resident permit or the risks related to irregular migration. And migrants who are already in the EU are not always aware of their rights. We need to provide solid, easily accessible information about these sometimes complicated procedures."
The EU Immigration Portal will serve as a first point of entry for up-to-date, practical information on EU and national immigration procedures and policies. The Portal also links directly to the websites of national authorities dealing with immigration. Users can also find straightforward information about their rights.
The Portal is available in English and French.
