EU "blue card" Directive must be implemented
Implementation date: 19 June 2011
The Directive defines conditions of entry and residence for more than three months of people who are not EU citizens and apply to be admitted to the EU for the purpose of high-qualified employment. Such people will be issued with an "EU blue card". The UK has opted out of the Directive. The Directive (PDF format, 796K) can be viewed on the European Union website.
