This study proposes simplified cost options for the Asylum and Migration Fund (AMIF), the Border Management and Visa Instrument (BMVI) and the Internal Security Fund (ISF) for the 2021-2027 programming period. Simplified cost options were developed in ten areas of activity namely: 1) legal assistance to asylum seekers, 2) training for asylum case workers 3) support to migrants immediately after their arrival 4) preparatory classes for minors 5) pre-departure measures in third countries 6) language training for third-country nationals 7) orientation training for third-country nationals 8) voluntary return 9) training of border guards and 10) training of consular staff. The study is built on a comprehensive set of historical data collected from Member States and complemented with alternative sources from Eurostat. Finally, the study explores additional areas where simplified cost options can be developed in the future for the migration and home affairs funds including Joint Investigation Teams operating in the EU and training of law enforcement officials.
