EU Blue cards

Information for applicants for a EU Blue card 


What is an EU Blue card?

An EU Blue Card is a new residential status designed for a long-term stay involving the performance of a highly skilled job (§ 42i of the Act on the Residence of Foreign Nationals). An EU Blue Card entitles a foreign national to stay and perform a job, i.e. the foreign national does not need a separate work permit.

Duly completed university education or higher vocational education, the duration of which was at least 3 years, is deemed to be a high level of skills.

The EU Blue Card database of vacancies is available at the website of the Ministry of Labour and Social Affairs.
