The Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) should contribute to strengthening the common asylum policy, develop legal migration in line with the member states’ economic and social needs, support third-country nationals to effectively integrate and be socially included, and contribute to the fight against irregular migration. Other objectives include ensuring that those without a right to stay in the EU are returned and readmitted in an effective, safe and dignified way. The AMIF will also support those people to begin reintegrating in non-EU countries to which they have been returned.
The AMIF aims to enhance solidarity and responsibility-sharing between the member states, in particular towards those most affected by migration and asylum challenges, including through practical cooperation.
The proposed budget for the AMIF for the 2021-2027 period, will amount to €9.882 billion in current prices.
It is planned that 63.5% of the overall budget will be allocated to programmes that are jointly managed by the EU and the Member States, whose entitlements will vary depending, among other factors, on the number of third-country nationals residing in the country, the asylum claims received, the return decisions taken and the effective returns carried out.
The other 36.5% will be directly managed by the EU and dedicated, among other actions, to emergency assistance, resettlement and humanitarian admission from non-EU countries and to relocate asylum-seekers and refugees to other EU member states.
In Ireland, the AMIF is managed by the Department of Justice. Further information can be found on their dedicated website http://eufunding.justice.ie.
