What are the procedures established by Member States to prevent and detect the misuse of authorisations for third-country nationals to reside for the purpose of study? The latest EMN Inform: Preventing, detecting and tackling situations where authorisations to reside in the EU for the purpose of study are misused provides a comparative overview of Member States’ approaches, experiences and best practices in addressing such cases.
The inform distinguishes between the pre- and post-arrival phase. In the pre-arrival phase, focus is on prevention of potential misuse of authorisations. The post-arrival phase, concentrates on detecting possible cases of misuse once an authorisation has been issued, highlighting the main methods adopted by the Member States and the consequences linked to such cases.
The inform outlines that several Member States give full priority to the pre-arrival phase, with as many placing emphasis on both the pre-arrival and the post-arrival phase.
