Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(2)  National authorities of the Member States experience difficulties in returning illegally staying third-country nationals who possess no valid travel documents.

Amendment     7

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 2 a (new)

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(2a)  Despite the fact that Council Recommendation of 30 November 19941a provided for a standard travel document, the continued lack of a harmonised travel document for return across the Union has been identified as one of the factors contributing to low recognition rates of the travel documents for return in Union readmission agreements with third countries and of the document in general by third countries. These low recognition rates are also often due to the varying formats, standards and security features of existing travel documents for return.

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(8)  The European travel document for return should help reduce the administrative and bureaucratic burden on Member States' and third countries' administrations, including consular services, and it should contribute to reducing the length of the administrative procedures necessary for ensuring return and readmission of illegally staying third-country nationals.

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(9a)  Member States should take all the necessary steps to ensure the systematic use of the European travel document for return in order to ensure the effective return of migrants staying irregularly on the territory of the Union in compliance with Directive 2008/115/EC of the European Parliament and of the Council and in full respect for Union law.

Amendment    19

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 9 b (new)

 

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

 

(9b)  A common approach to the format and recognition of travel documents for return is intended to increase cooperation on return and readmission overall and Member States, the Commission and the European External Action Service should prioritise readmission in all relevant contacts at political level with the countries of origin of irregular migrants to ensure that a consistent message is received by those countries. Such cooperation with countries of origin should also focus on the identification of irregular migrants and the issuing of travel documents. In this context, cooperation with the diplomatic representations of the countries of origin is crucial and should be prioritised.

Amendment     20

Proposal for a regulation

Recital 11

Text proposed by the Commission

Amendment

(11)  The content and technical specifications of the European travel document for return should be harmonised in order to ensure high technical and security standards, in particular as regards safeguards against counterfeiting and falsification. The document should bear recognisable harmonised security features. High technical and security standards already exist and are set according to Article 2 of Council Regulation (EC) No 333/200211 , which should therefore be applied to the European travel document for return.

EXPLANATORY STATEMENT

The return of those who do not qualify for international protection within the EU must be a priority for the European Union. Improving the rate of returns for irregular migrants is vital for the integrity of the EU’s asylum system, for cooperation between EU Member States and third countries, and for maintaining the confidence of EU citizens. In order to stabilise the current migrant crisis, alleviate pressure upon Member States and EU Agencies, and increase capacity and resources within the EU, a long term solution needs to be provided.

The EU cannot continue to be content with its current return rate amongst failed categories of asylum seekers. The existing standard EU travel document requires significant overhaul in its format and its implementation in order to increase its recognition by third countries and be effective. By harmonizing the format of the travel document, Member States will reduce bureaucracy, variation, costs, and waiting periods, and hopefully increase recognition of the document by third countries.

To date, many third countries are not willing to accept returns papers that are issued by EU Member States because they are poor quality documents. The EU needs to ensure higher technical and security standards, in particular as regards safeguards against counterfeiting and falsification. The Rapporteur therefore proposes setting a technical standard for the photograph provided, enhancing the overall security features of the travel document, and providing translation of the travel documents in both EU languages and the language of the relevant third countries in order to speed up the process.

The Rapporteur also suggests a regular and thorough review and analysis of the workings of the travel document; including the recognition rate of the travel document by each third country, as well as examining any potential improvements which need to made. Such a process needs to be done regularly given the EU’s current migrant crisis. Instruments in the area of asylum and migration cannot be allowed to fail for years before their shortcomings are addressed.

Ensuring the exchange of information between Member States with regard to the issuing of travel documents and individuals listed as illegally staying third country nationals who possess no valid travel documents is essential in order to increase mutual recognition of asylum decisions across the EU, and avoid secondary movement of failed asylum seekers. Therefore, the Rapporteur suggests that copies of travel documents issued by Member States are imputed into the EURODAC system and the Schengen information system.

The rapporteur notes the need to promote the travel document through the work of the EU’s other agencies, the activities of the External Action Service, and any future developments of the FRONTEX and EASO Agencies. The Rapporteur stresses that in order for the travel document to be widely recognised and more effective, it is necessary for this document to be part of a determined pursuit by the EU to gain stronger and more effective readmission agreements with third countries. The recognition of the document should be a requirement of any future EU readmission and cooperation agreement.
