Immigration and Border Management

Technical support is continuously provided to the Albanian border authorities for the implementation of the Integrated Border Management (IBM) Strategy as well as for the contingency planning on migration flows. In line with the provisions of the IBM Strategy, IOM will continue to promote further cooperation with the neighboring countries in preventing and fighting irregular migration of Albanian citizens and third country nationals in line with the existing bilateral agreements and regional initiatives, in particular, in the areas of information processing and exchange, assisted voluntary return, country of origin analysis, readmission agreements, reception facilities for irregular third-country nationals, interpretation and language analysis.
