On 19 April, ICMPD presented the new EU-funded project "Support to Migration and Border Management in Armenia" (MIBMA) in Yerevan at the official launch of the project.
Objective: The overall objective of the action is to enhance approximation of the migration and border management in Armenia to the European standards of governance, in order to increase security, facilitate trade, and support the possible visa liberalisation dialogue between the European Union and Armenia.
The specific objectives are to:
To increase Government capacities for migration and asylum management in line with the EU-Armenia Visa Facilitation and Readmission Agreements and Mobility Partnership, to prepare for the possible EU-Armenia visa liberalisation dialogue
To strengthen inter-agency cooperation through further extension of the IBM concept and its principles into Armenia’s border management system with a focus on core areas such as the simplification and harmonisation of procedures; to improve the service level for end users; to facilitate trade; and to further develop transport corridors
