For the past years the government of RA announced EU integration as a developing priority political direction in the sphere of migration. With European Neighborhood Policy and Eastern Mobility Partnership initiatives Armenia has handled new responsibilities in this field. The new Concept of State Regulation of Migration in the Republic of Armenia was approved by the RA government in 2010. “Action Plan for Implementation of the Policy Concept for the State Regulation of Migration in the Republic of Armenia in 2012-2016” was also adopted by the RA Government. In October, 2011 Armenia and EU signed a joint Declaration on Mobility Partnership, which is aimed at effective regulation of migration flow between Armenia and 10 countries of EU.
In the framework of the Declaration the following programmes are intended to be implemented.
These programmes mainly refer to irregular migration and integration, information provision on possibilities of legal migration, ensuring effective reintegration of returned citizens and skills raising of the migrants, effective system of border management, improvement of the asylum system.
A project with the duration of three years on the formation of conditions for the effective reintegration for Armenians who have returned to Armenia from abroad has started in 2012. In the framework of the reintegration projects assistance will be implemented in two ways, consulting on the issues and service provision. The main executor and responsible figure for the implementation of the project is the State Migration Service of the RA Ministry of Territorial Administration.
