Training to be Held for Latvia’s Consular Staff

 

Published November 2011

From 3 to 6 November in the United Kingdom, the annual regional training will be held for Latvia’s consular officers working outside the region of the Schengen Agreement member states.

The aim of the training is to discuss how to unify the procedures of issuing visas according to the Schengen Acquis provisions at all Latvia’s diplomatic and consular missions thus making the required contribution to securing the external border of the European Union. Issuing visas at the missions abroad lies directly within the scope of the matters related to security on the EU’s external borders. It is also important to perform a thorough and complete analysis of specific issues for each region through promoting the exchange of experience among experts from the EU and Schengen Agreement member states. At the same time this training is required in order to ensure high professional standards among consular service officials and to enhance effective services both in Schengen Agreement member states and in the regions outside the Schengen zone.

Taking part in the training are consular service staff from diplomatic and consular missions and the Foreign Ministry of the Republic of Latvia, as well as lecturers from the Foreign Ministry, the Citizenship and Migration Authority, the State Border Guard and the Security Police. During the training, leading specialists on the detection of counterfeit fraud from the Counterfeit Documents Division of the UK Border Agency Joanne Cain and Lisa Roberts will share their experience in detecting fake travel documents.

The Foreign Ministry organizes this training in the framework of the European External Border Fund Project No IA/MFA/EEBF/2010/2 "Providing regional training for consular service officers on integrated management of the EU's common visa issue policy according to the requirements of the Europe’s Border Code and the Visa Code". The Fund is part of the General Programme of the Solidarity and Management of Migrations Flows 2007-2013, and the training is financed from the said programme and the state budget (co-financing provided according to the fund’s regulations).
