Questions about the EU? Europe Direct can help

I'm moving abroad in Europe – how do I get a residence permit? What are the rules on roaming charges? My flight's been cancelled - what are my rights? What EU grants can my organisation apply for? For the answers to all these questions and more, contact Europe Direct central information service.

If you're looking for advice or help in your neighbourhood, or for a local forum promoting dialogue and awareness about EU policies, contact your nearest local information centre.

Please note that the offices of EUROPE DIRECT will be closed from 23 December up to 2 January. We will be pleased to handle your enquiries as of 5 January. The EUROPE DIRECT team wishes you a merry Christmas and a happy New Year.
