Long-term resident EC residence permit (Non-EU Residents)
 
Hi EF Members,


I read that people non-EU residents may be eligible for EU wide residency permit, if they live in a EU state for at least 5 years. I assume that this means the possibility to work also, without having to go through the work permit process.


From what I read, this directive doesn't apply to following countries - Great Britain, Denmark and Norway. I didn't find any information, if this applies to non-EU residents living in Switzerland for more than 5 years.


Thanks in advance for an answer

<quote>The 2003 Directive on the status of non-EU nationals who are long-term residents http://ec.europa.eu/wel/images/doc_icons/f_pdf_16.gif states that the status of long-term resident should be awarded after a person has lived legally in an EU State for an uninterrupted period of five years. This is however dependent upon the person having a stable and regular source of income, health insurance and, when required by the EU State, having complied with integration measures .. <unquote>

Neither Switzerland nor Norway are in the EU so.... I would say, no.
