Chapter Summary

This chapter looks at the conditions that third-country nationals have to fulfill in order to acquire long-term residence status. The main interest here is to explore the possibility of requiring the third-country national to comply with some kind of integration before the permit is granted. The chapter begins by briefly exploring their origin in the citizenship legislations of some Member States. Interestingly enough, in some countries, such as the Netherlands and the UK, the same test applies in order to become naturalised as to obtain permanent residence. It then succinctly points out the way in which integration is also being used in another European instrument, notably the Family Reunification Directive, although that Directive allows for integration measures and not integration conditions. The chapter examines how Member States are implementing the integration.
