Summary/Abstract: Freedom of movement is one of the fundamental rights within the European Union, an essential and absolutely necessary element for the existence of the common market. This field’s acquis gives the European citizens the right to move freely within the EU in their personal and professional interests. In this dynamic field, which is evolving at the pace of the European integration process, free movement has an important social dimension. Free movement is not absolute but may be subject to certain limitations dictated by overriding interests and may therefore be restricted for reasons of public policy, public safety and health. The importance of the analyzed theme arises primarily from the fact that it is a topical issue related on the one hand to the purpose that formed the basis of the formation of the European Union, to give equal and mutual rights and benefits to the citizens of the Member States, and the main advantage was the right to free movement and, on the other hand, the current reality facing humanity in the context of the current crisis generated by the COVID-19 pandemic. The principle of non-discrimination regarding the right of residence and work within the European Union has been and will be at the heart of the free movement idea. An important aspect that makes the issue of free movement to be and to always remain relevant is the changes of political, economic, social and legislative nature at national level within the Member States of the European Union, changes that implicitly also influence the relations with the other Member State of the European Union.
