Just a single permit to live and work in the EU

The proposed "single permit" must suffice to enable third-country workers to live and work in the EU, said the Civil Liberties Committee on Thursday. Allowing Member States to issue additional documents would defeat the whole purpose of having a "single permit", which should include all relevant information on the right to work. MEPs backed the original Commission text on this and confirmed December's plenary vote on the employment issues. The proposed "single permit" directive aims to streamline bureaucratic procedures for all potential immigrants applying to live and work in an EU Member State, by enabling them to obtain work and residence permits via a single procedure. The proposal would also confer a common set of rights to third-country workers comparable to those of EU citizens, such as minimum working conditions, recognition of diplomas and professional qualifications and access to social security.
