The ‘EU Immigration Portal’ is a website with hands-on information for foreign nationals interested in moving to the EU. It offers explanation of the possibilities of legal migration into the EU and of the risks related to irregular migration. It is intended for potential immigrants, third-country nationals already in the EU and other stakeholders such as governments and NGOs.

The site (http://ec.europa.eu/immigration/) offers more than 600 pages of text, bringing together the EU legislation on immigration and the immigration policies and procedures of the 28 Member States.

Workers, researchers, students and those looking to join their families already in the EU can find information adapted to their needs, about the Member State they are interested in moving to. The Portal also links directly to the websites of national authorities dealing with immigration. Users can also find straightforward information about their rights and whether they need a visa to come to the EU.

Migrants and potential migrants also find a vast contact directory of governmental and non governmental organisations which can help them. A Portuguese version of the site is underway. (ANSAmed)
