Nasscom for single work permit in EU

“We have submitted our presentation with the EU. We have proposed a creation of a harmonised EU wide fast track single application procedure to issue a single permit (combining work permit, visa and residence permit) for the IT workers temporarily assigned there,” Nasscom Vice-President, global trade and development, Ameet Nivsarkar said.

At present, no harmonised set of admission rules and procedures apply across the European Union (EU).

EU has some 27 member states and each state has different regimes for work permit application, making the movement of high-skilled and specialised workers of a company within EU cumbersome.

If an individual working for an IT firm X, which has presence in two or more EU member states, then the person has to seek work permit from all the member states where he intends to work.
