The technical assistance involved the deployment of migration experts to develop an intervention that should not exceed 60 days in total, including preparatory and reporting tasks to be carried out at the experts’ home station. If needed for follow-up or continued assistance, this period could be split in several travels, where the experts were deployed to the requesting country more than once, as long as the total duration is equal or less than 60 working days. These days could be assigned to one, two or more experts depending on the requirements of the technical assistance intervention.
The technical assistance was provided by migration experts, was non-financial and did not not cover salaries or other benefits of Government staff or equipment. It could entail technical support on various themes such as visas, remittances, readmission, trafficking in human beings or smuggling of migrants.
