What category do I fit into?

The image depicts a puzzle with one piece standing out, labelled "IMMIGRATION," against the rest of the puzzle patterned with the European Union flag's blue background and yellow stars.

You can discover on these pages whether you fall into any of the categories of people covered by the EU Directives. Further information on the basic criteria can also be found on this page. If you already know which category you come under and which Member State you wish to immigrate to, you can directly look for information on this map.

The information on these pages applies in 25 of the 27 EU countries, excluding Ireland and Denmark.
