About this site

Your Europe is an EU site designed to help you do things in other European countries – avoiding unnecessary inconvenience and red tape.

This can mean moving, living, studying, working, shopping or simply travelling abroad. Or, as a company, doing business abroad.

As an EU national – or national of Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway – you have certain rights in these areas. But they may not always be observed when a country hasn't yet fully implemented the relevant EU law.

What information is on this site?

Your Europe offers:

  • information on your basic rights under EU law.
  • how these rights are implemented in each individual country (where information has been provided by the national authorities).
  • free email or telephone contact with EU assistance services, to get more personalised or detailed help and advice.

Countries / nationalities covered

The information on this site is mainly aimed at EU nationals and their families (including family members from non-EU countries).

In most cases, the EU rights described in Your Europe apply to all EU member countries plus Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.

Sometimes, EU rights also apply to Switzerland – but not always, because Switzerland has signed up to some arrangements with the EU but not others.

Each page of Your Europe states precisely the countries or nationalities to which the information it contains applies.
