    Croatians will most likely have to wait another decade before being allowed to freely enter the European Union job market, the daily Vecernji List writes.

    EU member states have the right to forbid employment of Croatian citizens for seven years from the country's entrance, in an attempt to manage labour flow.

    If Croatia becomes an EU member in 2013, this would mean that the Europe's "job portals" would not open to its citizens before 2020.

    Signals given to the Croatian government show that the three states that are of most interest to Croatians when it comes to new jobs – Austria, Italy and Germany – are likely to impose these limitations.

    Every year Croatia sends around 5,000 guest workers to Germany, many of whom are re-hired every season. The largest part of this year's quota will be filled with workers in whose names the previous bosses had already issued contracts.

    The Croatian Employment Service (HZZ) has already started approving this year's contracts as the season for planting or picking strawberries, asparagus, apples and potatoes can start as early as February, the daily writes.




    And another country that in some years will suffer brain drain to West of best brains. I really hope for Croatia's sake they don't join EU. It will only damage them.
