Chapter Summary

The four Directives on legal migration are not applicable to all Member States of the European Union, as Denmark, the United Kingdom (UK) and Ireland have negotiated opt-outs from any measures adopted under Title IV of the EC Treaty. The UK and Ireland have secured an opt-out from the entire Title IV EC with the 'Protocol on the position of the United Kingdom and Ireland' annexed to the Treaty of Amsterdam. Both countries have the possibility to 'opt-in' for the adoption of any measure adopted under Title IV within three months of a new proposal. Denmark has an opt-out for all measures adopted under Title IV EC, without the opt-in procedure available to the UK and Ireland. This chapter provides an overview of the rules concerning legal migration in Denmark and the United Kingdom, indicating similarities and differences to the EU Directives.
