Opening Europe's Doors to Unskilled and Low-Skilled Workers: A Practical Handbook

The study, commissioned from IOM by the Bureau of European Policy Advisors (BEPA) provides an inventory of the admission and residence procedures for unskilled and low-skilled third-country workers entering the labour markets of the 27 EU Member States.

About this study:

With the adoption of Europe's Policy Plan on legal migration and the directive on highly skilled migrants, the Commission consideres necessary to focus on how EU Member States admit low-skilled and unskilled migrants into their countries. For example, some EU countries, especially in the South of Europe, tend to need more unskilled and low-skilled migrants than highly skilled ones. Low-skilled migrants alrady form an important part of the workforce in many EU countries.

This handbook is only available in English.
