What We Do

Your Europe

Your Europe is a European Commission website which provides information to citizens and businesses on their rights in the EU.

It provides practical information for citizens looking to live and work in another EU country and for businesses looking to do business in another EU country.

Your Europe is divided into a separate Your Europe Citizens website, and a Your Europe Business website.

The Internal Market Unit acts as national co-ordinator in response to European Commission requests for updates of information on Your Europe relevant to Ireland.

Your Europe Advice

Your Europe Advice is an EU advice service for the public. It consists of a team of lawyers who cover all EU official languages and are familiar both with EU law and national laws in all EU countries.

Your Europe Advice can:

  • provide free and personalised advice in your language, within a week
  • clarify the European law that applies in your case
  • explain how you can exercise your EU rights

Your Europe Advice works closely with SOLVIT, a problem-solving network that deals with problems between individuals or companies and the authorities in another country, in cases where there is a possible misapplication of EU law.

If, after examining a request for advice, Your Europe Advice think you may need further help in solving a problem with the national administration in question, they will transfer your case from Your Europe Advice to SOLVIT and inform you accordingly.

Further Contact Points can also be found on the Your Europe Citizens website, for citizens seeking assistance on their EU rights.
