Support of Legal Migration at the European Level

Accepting economic migrants is the basis of the policy of legal migration and it is essential to deal with this issue on European level, in order to achieve a significant development of the EU immigration policy. What concerns political priorities in the area of legal migration resulting from the Haague Programme of 2004, the Policy Plan on Legal Migration is the fundamental document. This Plan serves as a „road map“ for the period of 2006-2009. During this period, the European Commission in cooperation with Member States will undertake in a coordinated manner a set of requirements. The Commission proposes particular measures leading to a gradual harmonization of the area of economic migration.

Within the Council of the EU, the agenda of legal migration is discussed at the Migration – Admission Working Group, SCIFA and other traditional Council levels such as the COREPER or even the JHA Council itself. The document that the Czech Republic will be dealing with during its EU Presidency is the Proposal for a Council Directive on a single application procedure for a single permit for third-country nationals to reside and work in the territory of a Member State and on a common set of rights for third-country workers legally residing in a Member State
