A fifty-euro fee for foreigners who come to Europe for pleasure or business: it is one of the possible solutions to the study to address the emergency linked to migratory flows from the financial point of view.
The Rome Summit
The hypothesis formulated by the Commission’s financial specialists in Brussels is contained in a report prepared that will be submitted to governments. It provides for the issue of a ‘visa’ for citizens resident in the other continents that could be paid at time of entry or, alternatively, a contribution of ten euro on airfare. On the eve of the summit to be held in Rome on Friday – when the president of council Matteo Renzi will meet Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Jean-Claude Juncker Commission, the EU Council Donald Tusk and Parliament Martin Schulz – to analyze all options for provisioning the Fund needed to manage the reception of refugees. But also to organize the repatriation to their home countries of those not entitled to refugee status.
Allocation of 15 billion
There are many countries in favor of the application of EU Migration Compact , but to achieve it we must be able to count on a budget at least double or even triple that already exists. In the two European funds, there are about 7 billion euro, but the accounts state that the demand exceeds 15 billion. Archived the possibility of issuing Eurobonds due to the strong opposition of Germany, will seek alternate routes. As it is specified in the document “the new Fund should mainly finance non-current expenses.”Analysts specify that it has proposed a system of taxation because “excise taxes have the advantage of providing great sources of income and could well be harmonized.”
The entry visa
The Commission’s financial experts specify the need to “establish a new source of income for the European Union with a ‘visa’ or a new fuel tax.” In reality this second hypothesis appears less likely, for the resistance of many governments due to the fact that in this case it would continue to “weigh” on European citizens. That outlines the plan to supply the Fund with exterior entrances. The report reads: ‘To ensure a smooth flow and avoid taxes on refugees, the fund could be powered by travelers from third countries. ” They call it “Schengen Visa”, actually only affects those who live outside of Europe, it is not expected to be paid by people living in the old continent, although it has not acceded to the Treaty on free movement.
10 Euros per flight
‘Passed’ it would add to the Union’s coffers, “between 500 and 700 million per year.” An amount not sufficient to cover the needs, but that would be a first important step to reaffirm the “compactness” of European policy. The other measure provides “a 10 euro fee for each passenger of a third country who arrives by plane. In this case the entry would be about 3.3 billion. It is possible to propose both measures in order to overcome the 4 billion needed to at least start the project.
