EU relaxes visa rules for workers


The European Commission on Tuesday welcomed the agreement reached between the regional bloc’s parliament and the council to relax the visa rules for workers coming to the continent to work as skilled labourers. The new rules have been changed under the revised Blue Card Directive.

The new scheme will introduce efficient rules for attracting highly skilled workers to the EU, including more flexible admission conditions, enhanced rights, and the possibility to move and work more easily between the EU member states.—Agencies
