Most countries that I know don't consider parents as family members and don't allow a legal worker to take them with him/her (unlike taking the spouse or children) for the term of the contract. Are there any countries in Europe that allow that? If that helps, I'm talking about a legit IT employee.

  • In Germany, the authorities may allow parents in if that is necessary to avoid undue hardship. Basic language proficiency is required unless that would be undue hardship, too. – o.m. Jul 20 '17 at 15:59
