Professional Immigration- List of understaffed occupations applicable to third country nationals – 18/01/2013

With the decree of 11 August 2011, the government had halved the understaffed occupations, where the labour market test is not applicable to foreign nationals of third countries in the European Union. In a judgment of 26 December 2012, the Council of State annulled the decree notably based on the irregularity of the procedure of consultation with trade unions.
