Researchers’ Directive applies to the procedure of admission for non-EU researchers interested in carrying out work in an authorized research organization in an EU member state, for periods longer than 3 months. A research organization – university, institute, private company – is considered as authorized when approved by the national authorities to host non-EU researchers.

The applicant must provide:

  • Scientific qualifications
  • Sufficient financial resources
  • Health Insurance proof
  • An agreement with the employer
  • A valid passport/travel document
  • A written declaration from the research organization concerning the reimbursement of costs should you overstay

The agreement is similar to a contract with the authorized research organization, which validates the project and stipulates the work conditions.
