The professional recognition procedure in this case takes place electronically via the “European Professional Card” (EPC) – an alternative to the usual recognition procedure for professional qualifications acquired in the home country (European Union).

With the European Professional Card, this procedure is now much easier and more transparent as the process of your application can be tracked online. Currently, the EPC can only be applied for the following professional qualifications:

  • nurse  for general care
  • pharmacist
  • physiotherapist
  • mountain guide
  • estate agent

The steps necessary to process the documents can be found on the website www.europa.euhttps: //

Please note: The submitted documents must be authenticated by the issuing authority in the home country through the IMI system.
