EU Restructure Residence, Work Visas for Immigrants

In a positive development, recently the European Union (EU) lawmakers cast their votes to put legal migrants at par with the citizens of the member states, involving their working conditions and rights. Under the new law, overseas people, living or doing a job in the Union legally, will have comparable right to enjoy pensions, social security and public services as the citizens of the EU, besides duties related to tax.

The law also decreases bureaucratic delays by reorganizing work and residence visas in a single route. Even though all the member nations still have the right to accept or decline migrants, they are expected to make decisions, within a period of four months, on whether to give an aspirant the single permit.

In this connection, the Home Affairs Commissioner of the EU, the man behind the legislation, was quoted as saying that the decree will lead to a single window system, and, in the process, boost and increase the pace of administrative actions for both -- the future job-provider and the immigrant. The concerned person added that the legislation will surely make the life of the migrants, keen on residing and working in the bloc, much easier.

Meanwhile, the European Commission (EC) reportedly said that the single permit for the immigrants may prove beneficial for the seasonal workers across these domains, namely, tourism horticulture and agriculture, besides very qualified workers from the business sector, who are on the payroll of those multinational firms, which seek to transfer their employees to places across the bloc.
