As we remember, following its publication in the Official Journal of the EU, the member states (except Britain, Denmark and Ireland) had two years to incorporate the Blue Card provisions into their domestic legislation. This means by June 19, 2011 – less than a year now!
After that date, and as determined by the individual member states, EU Blue Card applications should be accepted and processed by the corresponding member state and judged according to their specific national guidelines.
Spain has already done so (Ley Orgánica 2/2009, in effect December 13, 2009, and a revision of Ley Orgánica 4/2000) – incorporated the Blue Card into Spain’s national law. However, Spain does not yet accept Blue Card applications and has not yet made public what their requirements will be.
