Living and working in the internal market

Internal market

The free movement of persons is one of the fundamental principles guaranteed by the European Union (EU). Any EU resident has the right to travel, live, study, work, become established or provide a service in another Member State without being subject to nationality-based discrimination. The EU works towards making freedom of movement effective and simple within its borders, in particular concerning social security schemes.
The counterpart of the free movement of persons is an external border policy which is designed to guarantee an area of freedom, security and justice and covers the entry and stay of non-Europeans.
