Commission presents emergency asylum and return measures to ease Belarus border crisis

The European Commission has presented today a set of temporary asylum and return measures to assist Latvia, Lithuania and Poland in addressing the emergency situation at the EU's external border with Belarus.

The measures are based on Article 78(3) TFEU, and will enter into force for a period of 6 months after being adopted by the Council, and following consultation of the European Parliament.

The proposed measures include an emergency migration and asylum management procedure at the external borders as well as support from EU agencies such as EASO. Under the emergency procedure, the Member States concerned would be able to extend the registration period for asylum applications up to 4 weeks, instead of the current timefram
