Mar 10, 2017 – On late Thursday a new law passed in the German parliament, which aims to make studies and research a lot easier for non-EU academics, if they are already doing so in another EU country. This law is an implementation of EU policy set to break down barriers.
Employees of International companies will also benefit from this law as they can now move with ease between EU countries.
Simultaneously, another law has been approved for a different EU directive, which will allow non-EU seasonal workers more rights. Before entering the country, the workers must have a valid contract, working hour regulations and a set job offer and salary, whereas permanent stay will not be allowed.
“The new policies are a way for the EU member states to harmonize the regulations between them, while at the same time make it easier and attractive to citizens of third-world countries to study and do research” – confirmed the European Parliament last year.
These regulations are yet expected to be approved by the upper house of parliament, known otherwise as the Bundesrat./DPA
