Bulgaria to Get 72.8 million euro in EU Funds to Improve Migration Management
Wednesday, 12 August 2015
Bulgaria stands to receive about 72.8 million euro in EU funding over seven years to deal with increased migratory pressure at its borders, the European Commission announced on Monday.
Bulgaria will receive about 40.4 million euro under the ISF Borders instrument to improve the surveillance and control of its borders plus some 32 million euro under the ISF Police instrument to boost security of consular services for issuing visas and improve verification of personal data of travellers crossing its borders. The ISF aims to help ensure a high level of security and crime prevention in the EU, while enabling legitimate travel and ensuring solid management of the Union's external borders.
