Disabilities shouldn't be barriers
All EU citizens have the right to move to another EU country to live, work or study but, if you have a disability, you may find you don’t have the same opportunities in practice.
You may come up against barriers when studying, looking for a job, travelling, purchasing goods and services or simply accessing information.
Freedom of movement
The European Disability Forum has launched a campaign to remove all barriers for people with disabilities. The main goal is to convince others, especially employers and public services, to adapt.
- The European Accessibility Act introduced accessibility requirements across the EU covering goods and services.
- The European Mobility Card makes it easier for you to travel to other EU countries if you have a disability. The card allows you to access certain services under the same conditions as nationals with disabilities.
