Increasing the minimum salary (SMIC) and the wage index (minimum garanti) on July 1, 2012, resulted in changes to the salary thresholds applicable to Intra-Company Transferees and other foreign workers seeking to be accompanied by family members. The SMIC has been raised to €1,425.27 per month for the work week of 35 hours. The minimum garanti is now €3.49.
Intra-Company Transferees must meet the salary threshold of 150 percent of SMIC, which will now amount to €2,137.90 per month. A foreign worker other than an Intra-Company Transferee may be accompanied by family members when he or she meets the salary threshold of 1300 times the minimum garanti, or €4,537 per month.
