Non-EU scholars can rejoice as Germany launches easier study visas
The Parliament of Germany has passed a law that makes it easier for overseas immigrant scholars from the non-European nations to carry our research or study in Germany if they are already residing in another European nation.
This new law is in furtherance of the European Union Policy to abolish hindrances for scholars who are pursuing their academics in any fellow member nations. This implies that for instance, a researcher from India in France will now easily be able to immigrate for a semester’s study to Germany.
Working professionals of overseas firms will also now be able to arrive and depart with ease from one EU nation to another, quoted The Local DE.
The Parliament of Germany also concurrently passed another law to give effect to one more directive of the European Union to give seasonal workers from non-EU nations more rights. They will not be permitted to reside on a permanent basis. Before arriving in Germany they will also have to possess a valid job offer or work contract as per the regulations for wages and work hours.
The new regulations are yet to be ratified by the upper house of the Parliament also known as Bundesrat.
These new policies are aimed at harmonizing regulations amongst member nations of the European Union at a time when the EU is struggling for its future as a unified organization in the wake of last year’s decision of the UK to exit from the union through Brexit referendum.
These new policies are aimed at making it easier and more appealing for citizens from non-EU nations to carry out research or study, as quoted by the parliament of the EU last year.
