The BAMF informs: Adjustment of the eligibility criteria for URA Albania as of 01.05.2023

12 April 2023

As of May 1, 2023, the eligibility criteria for the bridge component will be adjusted in connection with the expansion of the JRS program for Albania in order to avoid double funding/structures.

Since persons with long-term toleration (at least 2 years) have been able to access reintegration support under JRS since January 1, 2023, they will be excluded from support under the Albania bridge component in the future.

The changes will take effect for departures from 01 May 2023.
