On Tuesday, Civil Liberties Committee MEPs backed the informal deal reached with the Council on a new standard European travel document to speed the return of non-EU nationals staying “irregularly” in EU member states without valid passports or identity cards. A key goal during the previous talks has been to increase third countries’ acceptance of the document through improved technical details. The text, drafted by Jussi Halla-aho (ECR, FI), was informally agreed by MEPs and EU ministers on June 23. If approved, the new regulation will produce a common format for the European travel document. Its technical details would include personal information, such as name, age, gender and distinguishing marks, as well as a passport photograph, in order to combat counterfeiting and falsification. By using the same security features laid down in 2002 for visas issued by EU countries, the document’s recognition should be enhanced and the administrative burdens reduced for both EU and destination countries’ authorities.To enter into force, this informal deal needs to be formally endorsed by the full Parliament and the Council of Ministers. The Parliament’s plenary vote is scheduled for September.
