Dear European Council,

Under the right of access to documents in the EU treaties, as developed in Regulation 1049/2001, I am requesting documents which contain the following information:

1. What are the qualifications to get a Blue Card?
2. What is the official channel for getting a Blue Card? Does this process needs to be done through an online platform or a physical channel such as an embassy?
3. What rights do Blue card give to it's holder?
4. While Blue Card's main purpose is to attract qualified workers to Europe, It is so hard to reach concrete information about it. What is European Council doing in order to make Blue Card attractive and accessible for it's potential applicants?

Yours faithfully,

First of all let us inform you that the Blue card falls under European Commission compenteces.

The European Commission has wide information:

*Your annual gross salary must be high, at least one and a half times the average national salary - except when the lower salary threshold applies;
*You must present a work contract or binding job offer in an EU country for at least one year;
*You must have the necessary travel documents. You must have health insurance for yourself and any relatives who come to the EU with you.
*You must prove that you fulfil the legal requirements to practice your profession, where this profession is regulated ....

Where can I apply?

You or your employer must submit an application for an EU Blue Card to the competent national authorities in the country where you wish to work. Depending on the rules in that country, you may have to pay an application fee.
