Migration Board offers fast track jobs migration

Published: 30 Sep 2011 10:07 CET

The programme has been dubbed “certification” (certifiering), and is primarily going to be offered to a number of bigger companies such as IKEA and Ericsson.

Instead of going through the Migration Board, these companies will have the opportunity to handle contact with both applicants and the unions.

“There is a group of big companies that have developed the expertise to handle this in a way that fully satisfies all of our quality demands,” Jonas Lidgren at the Migration Board said.

The new system will most likely have the biggest impact on companies that need educated and specialized workforce, and in comprehensive projects where co-workers travel back and forth between countries.

“Those companies don’t have time to wait,” Lindgren noted.

A condition for these companies is that their needs exceed 50 new staff per year. Initially, the new system only affects 500 out of the Migrations Board’s annual 30,000 cases.

“The point of this is a whole new way to work with the question of certification,” Lindgren said. “The long-term goal is that a significant proportion of our cases can be handled this way.”
