The European Commission has proposed a Directive to enhance clarity and transparency in Member States’ regulations that condition entry and residence of third country nationals. It aims to attract more talented non-EU students and researchers who can contribute to the growth and competitiveness of Europe through a reduction of the bureaucratic hurdles that the more than 200.000 students and researchers from outside the EU face every year.

The proposed Directive has i.a. provisions on procedural guarantees regarding residence permits, intra-European mobility, and access to labor market.
