Migration and Visa Liberalisation of Third Countries in E.U.

Ervis Moçka


Only a year after signing the agreements of visa liberalization with Serbia, Montenegro and Macedonia, the EU removed the borders even for Albania and Bosnia and Herzegovina. A category of people who meet certain requirements would benefit from this process and move freely in the EU area. The migration of the EU should be analyzed even although none of the treaties establishing the European Community provide specific rates on this policy. Art 8/A of the Single European Act provides the common market as “…a space without internal frontiers in which the free movement of goods, persons, services and capital…”. “No border area” requires the cooperation of member states in reinforcing controls on external borders and coordination in migration policies.The cooperation began as an intergovernmental one until the ratification of Amsterdam Treaty where many sections of this collaboration passed in the first pillar. This paper aims to analyze the evolution of the EU policy in migration focusing on the current legislative framework after the ratification of the Lisbon Treaty.
