AMIF call for applications 2017

Ireland invited AMIF proposals for projects focussing on the voluntary return of third country nationals.

About AMIF

AMIF was established to cover the period 2014-2020. The AMIF fund will help achieve 4 objectives:

1. Asylum

Strengthening and developing the Common European Asylum System by ensuring that EU legislation in this field is efficiently and uniformly applied.

2. Legal migration & integration

Supporting legal migration to EU States in line with the labour market needs and promoting the effective integration of non-EU nationals.

3. Return

Enhancing fair and effective return strategies, which contribute to combating irregular migration, with an emphasis on sustainability and effectiveness of the return process.

4. Solidarity

Making sure that EU States which are most affected by migration and asylum flows can count on solidarity from other EU States.

The Fund establishes a financial solidarity mechanism to support the efforts of Member States to improve the management of return in all its dimensions through the use of the concept of integrated return management, with a preference to voluntary return and with a view to supporting a fair and effective implementation of common standards on return.

The Fund will also support joint return actions including several Member States.
