EU Directive 2014/66 on the conditions of entry and residence of third-country nationals in the framework of an intra-corporate transfer – June 6, 2014

The European parliament and the Council of the EU adopted the Directive 2014/66 which provides for an EU wide immigration status suited to posting of assignees from affiliates located outside the EU to affiliates within EU. The directive provides for simplified and transparent processing for assignees and their family members, and facilitates intra-EU mobility. Member States (except UK, Ireland and Denmark who opted out) must transpose this directive into national law by 29 November 2016.
