Essential information

This is the official EU Blue Card page of the European Commission. Other websites on the EU Blue Card may contain incorrect information or charge for their services, and they cannot issue EU Blue Cards. Only Member States of the EU can issue EU Blue Cards - you can find the links to the official national websites in these pages.

Please note that the rules for the EU Blue Card were amended in 2021. Member States must integrate the new rules into their legislation by November 2023, after which they will be applicable to third-country nationals.
