Note(s)

In contrast to return operations, (rapid) return interventions may be provided by Frontex in circumstances where an EU Member State is facing a burden or specific and disproportionate challenges when implementing the obligation to return third-country nationals upon request of that EU Member State. Such return interventions shall be based on an operational plan drawn up by the executive director of Frontex in agreement with the host EU Member State and the participating EU Member States . They shall be financed or co-financed by Frontex. (see Art. 33 of the Regulation (EU) 2016/1624 (European Border and Coast Guard Regulation)
