Migratory routes and EU readmission agreements in force

Seven Mobility Partnership (MP) declarations have been signed so far: with Cape Verde, the Republic of Moldova, Georgia, Armenia, Morocco, Azerbaijan and Tunisia, as well as two CAMMs with Ethiopia and Nigeria. The main difference between the two types of agreement is with regard to visa facilitation (easier visa issuance granting access to the EU for up to three months) and readmission agreements that are to be negotiated under MPs, but not CAMMs. The readmission agreements address procedures under which non-EU nationals apprehended in an irregular situation are readmitted to the state of origin (or transit), and are considered a key element in the implementation of the 2008 EU Return Directive. To date, the EU has concluded readmission agreements with 17 countries.
