Commission's proposal: Draft Amending Budget 3/2022, COM(2022) 262 – 22 April 2022
The invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation on 24 February 2022 led to a mass influx of displaced persons (including many children) from Ukraine to the Union, who require urgent support. In turn, this has put significant pressure on Member States to deal with urgent migration and border management measures and face the related financial needs.
With a view to providing immediate support to people arriving in the Union and showing concrete solidarity with the most affected Member States, the Commission proposes that the EU budget contributes to the financing of the first reception and registration costs of people fleeing Ukraine for a total amount of EUR 400 million under the Asylum, Migration and Integration Fund (AMIF) and the Border Management and Visa Instrument (BMVI).
As part of this overall amount, Draft Amending Budget (DAB) No 3 for the year 2022 covers the following elements:
- reinforcement of AMIF for an amount of EUR 99,8 million in commitment appropriations and EUR 76 million in payment appropriations.
- reinforcement of BMVI for an amount of EUR 100 million in payment appropriations.
