(2) EU Integration of Albania

Albania-EU

Projects

The EU provides financial assistance to candidate and potential candidate countries and helps them reform and adapt their institutions and legislations. Financial assistance takes the form of projects on the ground following phases of programming and contracting. Hundreds of projects are being carried out across all sectors, countries and regions.

To ensure coherence, complementarity and coordination in implementing external assistance programmes worldwide, EuropeAid works in close collaboration with its various partners. The overall aim is to make external aid more effective. Civil society, international organisations and governments of EU Member States are all important actors in this field.

For more details consultwww.ec.europa.eu/europeaid

Overview

The EU programme of financial and technical cooperation supports Albania’s ambitious reform agenda. EU assistance focuses in particular on support for democratic development and good governance, regulatory reform and administrative capacity building and infrastructure development. EU funding for projects in Albania is provided in the form of grants, contracts and increasingly budget support.

On 25 September 2014 the Visa Information System (VIS)for Schengen short-stay visas started operation in all Schengen States' consulates present in the Western Balkans (Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, Kosovo*, Montenegro and Serbia) and Turkey. This is part of the gradual worldwide deployment of the VIS (which started in October 2011) leading to all Schengen States' consulates worldwide being connected. The global roll-out is scheduled to be completed in summer 2015.

As VIS relates exclusively to Schengen short-stay visas,Albanian citizens holding a biometric passport will not be affected. However residents in Albania who – due to their nationality – fall under the Schengen visa requirement will be submitted to the VIS procedure.

The EU Information Centre and the EU Information Points have been set up by the EU Delegation to Albania to bring the Union and Albania’s integration process closer to the citizens.

The EU Information Centre, located in Tirana, provides information to the Albanian public on the European Union and Albania’s integration process. The European Information Centre provides internet access, reading corners and has a broad variety of publications and official materials of the EU institutions, as well as EU bulletins, journals and other EU-related information. Visitors have free public access to all materials of the European Information Centre.
