Spain relaxes immigration laws

Updated: Jul 29



Spain has relaxed rules on the integration of undocumented foreigners into the labor market and the importation of workers from abroad. The country has changed the law regarding this on Tuesday.


Southwestern European country Spain has reformed existing immigration laws to meet the needs of sectors facing labor shortages such as tourism and agriculture. This will allow employers to easily bring workers from abroad. In addition, a separate work permit will no longer be required to employ immigrants currently living in Spain.


According to the country's immigration ministry, Spain was suffering socially and economically because the previous process was slow and inadequate. "With this initiative, we will be able to better deal with the challenges caused by immigration," the country's Social Security and Immigration Minister Jose Luis Escriva told reporters after the bill was passed in a cabinet meeting.
