Public consultation on the EU Blue Card and the EU’s labour migration policies (29/06/2015)

The European Commission has launched a public consultation on the EU Blue Card and the EU’s labour migration policies.

Following the publication of the Communication COM(2015) 240 final 'A EUROPEAN AGENDA ON MIGRATION',the European Commission has launched a public consultation on the EU Blue Card and the EU’s labour migration policies.

The aim of the consultation is to collect opinions on a range of issues related to economic migration with a view to contribute to the elaboration of a new European policy on legal migration and a review of the so-called "Blue Card" Directive.

This new policy on legal migration should help the EU address specific skills shortages and become a more attractive destination for talented workers and entrepreneurs who are willing to invest in Europe.

The online consultation form is available in all official EU languages, as are its supporting documents at the following address:
