Migreat has been appointed by the European Commission to advise as an expert on how to attract migrant entrepreneurs to Europe.
Following a call made out last January by the European Commission’s Directorate General for Migration and Home Affairs, Migreat received an invitation to take part in a temporary expert group set up to discuss economic migration to Europe and how to attract highly skilled talents.
The Expert group will discuss economic migration issues with the view to contribute to the elaboration of a new European policy on legal migration and a review of the Blue Card Directive.
There is a real need for the EU blue card to perform its full potential of becoming the equivalent of the US green card. The EU is suffering from specific skills shortages and needs to become a more open and attractive destination for talented workers who would consider migrating elsewhere.
The expert group meets for the first time in Brussels this March 2015 to discuss the opportunities and limitations of the EU Blue card in attracting the best and brightest talents.
As a practitioner and expert on the migration of entrepreneurs, Migreat was chosen to lead on the questions that cover visa schemes for graduate students, entrepreneurs and start-up visas.
Migreat will be able to share fresh insights thanks to data gathered with its online visa wizard app helping thousands of economic migrants navigate the European visa system daily.
“Migreat receives daily request from foreign entrepreneurs and highly skilled migrants to Europe. It is our mission to make sure these international talents are assisted by top immigration lawyers whereby they don’t get turned away by the bureaucracy of the visa system.” says Tara, Business Development Manager.
Migreat which frequently advises the UK Government on highly skilled migration, is delighted to contribute to the EU Commission Expert group on migration.
