The aim of the EU Blue Card is to minimize the shortage of skilled workers.   Owners of the EU Blue Card will get the same salary as citizens of the EU who do the same job.   The duration of this card is limited from one year to four years.

There is a high demand for highly qualified workers in the ICT (Information & Communication Technology) sector.
