Talent Mobility Package

Practical information

Summary

One of the objectives of the new Pact on Migration and Asylum is to enhance legal pathways to the EU, while engaging partner countries strategically on migration management.

With the Talent Mobility Package the Commission aims provide a comprehensive policy framework to address labour shortages and support the EU’s transition towards a green and digital economy; to facilitate legal migration pathways as part of the EU’s comprehensive approach to migration and improve relations between the EU and key partner countries, while avoiding the risk of ‘brain drain; to improve the overall efficiency of labour migration management at EU level, in particular in terms of the timeliness and resource-implications of the different processes, including when it comes to speeding up the process of recognising the skills and qualifications of non-EU candidates.
