Geography of mobility- Temporary mobility

The table below shows the number of declarations introduced and decisions taken (where applicable) by host countries on temporary provision of services for all regulated professions within the EU Member States, EEA countries and Switzerland.

Movement is shown between the country where the professional is legally established (country of qualification– listed in rows) and the host country where the services are provided on a temporary and occasional basis (host country – listed in columns).

It is possible to filter the table to view only the figures for a certain type of decision/ declaration or a given period.
