Chapter Summary

This chapter addresses how privileged treatment of third-country nationals translates into a special legal status on the basis of European Union (EU) law. It concentrates on entry and admission, employment and residence rights of third-country nationals. Under the EU visa policy the so-called black and white list determines whether a third-country national must be in possession of a visa or not to enter the territory of an EU Member State for short-term stays. Some privileged third-country nationals even enjoy entry rights for the purposes of taking up employment and other favourable rules relating to residence based on association agreements. With the adoption of a number of directives in the area of legal migration, the legal position of all third-country nationals, irrespective of nationality, has been reinforced, inter alia as regards entry, employment and residence, as well as family reunification.
