Today, in the EU InfoCentre, representatives of youth organizations and relevant ministries had the opportunity to discuss in common the challenges in the process of issuing a temporary residence visa for the volunteers of the European Voluntary Service, and to discuss possible solutions in order to overcome these challenges.

In recent years, organizations working with EVS (European Voluntary Service) program, are more likely to face problems of drawn-out process of issuing a visa D for European volunteers coming to Macedonia.

"Only 46% of the accredited youth organizations which in the past period were hosts of European volunteers within the Erasmus + programme, waited for more than 4 months for temporary visas to be issued to its volunteers and 54% of them waited for more than 2 months.

The complexity of the residence regulation procedures for volunteers, which is the same as for   immigrant's stay regulation, on one hand, and the low level of communication between the relevant institutions on this issue on the other, are the most common reasons for such situations.

“It is necessary to start making changes to the Law on Foreigners in order to facilitate the procedure for regulating the stay for volunteers from the European Voluntary Service, "said Zoran Ilieski, Executive Director of the Coalition of youth organizations SEGA.

This situation by delaying the process of issuing visas for foreign citizens through the EU Programme  ERASMUS + is reflected by canceling volunteers from projects, loss of funds, but also damaging the reputation of our country in the eyes of EU citizens, for which we are visibly worried.
