PEREGRINE WEBINAR – Van Der Elst: Work Permit Exemptions Within the EU

Join us for a webinar on Tuesday 9 December 2014 at 1.30PM BST (UK time). The webinar topic is “Van der Elst: Work Permit Exemptions Within the EU” and is free to attend for Peregrine’s Immiguru clients and partners. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first-come-first-served basis, so please contact us at to book your spot now.

Webinar Summary

“Van der Elst” is an immigration route whereby non-EU nationals who are legally employed in one EU member state may be sent for short term work or services to another EU state without the need to obtain an additional work permit.

However, Van der Elst is the result of a Tribunal of Justice ruling and has never been properly regulated in the form of an EU Directive. It is therefore applied very differently in different EU member states

Join us to learn more about this unusual and confusing immigration route, and how you might be able to use it to save time and cost when moving workers between EU member states.

The webinar will be presented live, and there will be an opportunity for attendees to ask the speakers questions directly.

Presenters and Speakers

The webinar will be hosted by Sophy King, Managing Director of Peregrine Immigration Management Ltd.

Sophy will be joined by the following immigration attorneys and specialists from the region, who will briefly present an overview of Van der Elst and how (or if!) it can be used in their countries:

Who Should Attend?

HR and mobility managers interested in mobility of non-EU national employees within the EU. Professional service providers are also welcome to attend.
