Hungary’s Minister of Finance has set a new quota limit for Work Permits issued to Immigrants. This year 57,000 Work Permits will be offered to Immigrants outside of European Union. The country published this notice in the latest issue of the official journal Hivatalos Értesít? shows.
In 2018, the Hungarian Government issued nearly 11,000 Work Permits to non-EU Immigrants. Sándor Bodó, the State Secretary of labour policy confirmed the news. The number has increased significantly this year, as quoted by Budapest Business Journal. Even the increase rate has gone up exponentially in 2019.
In 2017, about 9,300 Work Permits were issued. The data for the employment of non-EU Immigrants is yet to be published. The National Employment Office (NFSZ) releases this data every year. The latest data is based on details published on the website of Parliament.
Bodó added that hiring non-EU Immigrants will not be straightforward. Employers must provide sufficient data proving that they could not find a suitable match in the EU countries. The local labour market is not being utilized fully. That’s a matter of concern for the country, he reinforced.
Hungary aims at easing the labour shortage issue in the country. There are hundreds of jobs that often do not find suitable profiles in the EU countries. The quota limit has been increased for those jobs and employers. It opens doors to thousands of Immigrants across the globe. The aim is to improve the economy of the country. Skilled and Experienced Immigrants should be able to help them achieve that.
The State Secretary further pressed the point that employers must look for profiles in EU countries. If they fail to find any, they’d have to present the evidence of the same to the Government. The Government will then give them the required approvals. Once they receive the same, they can go ahead with the recruitment of non-EU Immigrants.
