AMSTERDAM - The IND reports on its website that Parliament decided to postpone the debate on fully opening the labour market to nationals of the EU member states that joined on 1 May 2004 until after the March break.

The debate will touch on how compliance with labour and housing conditions for these workers can be monitored. This means that the labour market will most likely not be fully opened to workers from Poland, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Hungary, Slovenia and Slovakia as of 1 May 2007.

They are recommended to apply for an EU/EER type residence permit from the municipality, and employers wishing to hire nationals of these countries must have a work permit for the activities the workers are to carry out.

The IND also reports that it will provide more detailed information on this topic as soon as it becomes available.
