Free Movement of Managerial, Supervisory and Technical Staff

Companies, other legal forms of businesses, organisations and self-employed persons have the right to bring in their managerial, supervisory and technical staff in order to further their business.  The right to free movement of these persons is linked to the company or other legal business organisations.  These categories cannot move on their own, unless they belong to one of the other eligible categories of wage earners.
