Chapter Summary

The Commission proposed a Directive on the status of long-term resident third-country nationals in the European Union. The right of residence can be exercised if the long-term resident is pursuing an economic activity or a non-economic activity, but the "second" Member State can insist that the long-term resident has sufficient resources and sickness insurance and comply with integration measures, provided that such measures were not already complied with in the first Member State. The May 2003 JHA Council also held a discussion on the key issues related to movement to the second Member State. By May, the Council working group had agreed to refer to long-term residents' "right to reside" in the Directive and had dropped the idea of an express accommodation requirement, but conversely had agreed that the right could be limited on grounds of labour market priority or the setting of a total quota for third-country nationals.
