1. Readmission agreements between the EU and a third country replace the agreements of an EU Member State with the same country, although this may not be the case for DK and possibly IE and uk, as these EU Member States may choose not to participate in the relevant EU agreement (opt-in).2. For more information, see the European Commission`s readmission website. There are two types of readmission agreements: EU readmission agreements and bilateral readmission agreements. an agreement between the European Union and/or a Member State of the European Union and a third country, on the basis of reciprocity, establishing rapid and effective procedures for the identification and safe and orderly return of persons who do not fulfil or no longer fulfil the conditions for entry into the territory of the third country or of one of the Member States of the European Union, or stay on the territory of the third country or a Member State of the Union; and facilitate the passage of such persons in a spirit of cooperation. At the end of 2010, the common rules adopted by EU Member States in 2008 on return (the Return Directive entered into force). They provide for clear, transparent and fair common rules for the repatriation and removal of irregular migrants, the application of coercive measures, detention and return with full respect for the human rights and fundamental freedoms of the persons concerned. The Directive has been transposed into national law by all related states (all EU Member States except Great Britain and Ireland, plus the four Schengen associated countries of Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein). The preamble to eu readmission agreements (z.B. EU readmission agreement with Serbia) Since 2008, on average, half a million foreigners have been ordered to leave the EU due to their irregular entry or stay. However, only 38% return to their country of origin or to the country of origin from which they travelled in the EU.

For yields outside Europe, this average is less than 30%. According to the auditors, one of the reasons for these low returns is the difficulty of cooperating with migrants` countries of origin. In 2015, the Commission published an EU Action Plan on Return, in which it recognised that an effective return system requires that the readmission of irregular migrants be a priority in relations with third countries. In 2016, it established the Migration Partnership Framework to promote better cooperation with priority countries of origin and transit, including through visa policy, development assistance and diplomatic engagement. . . .
