The Internal Security Fund - Borders and Visa (ISFB) is a component of the Internal Security Fund. It promotes the implementation of the Internal Security Strategy, law enforcement cooperation and management of the Union's external borders. It focuses on two objectives:
- Visa: process effectively Schengen visas by supporting a common visa policy, providing a high quality of service to visa applicants, ensuring equal treatment of non-EU nationals and tackling irregular migration;
- Borders: achieve a high level of control of the external borders by supporting integrated borders management, harmonising border management measures within the Union and sharing information among EU States and with Frontex, to halt irregular migration and ensure the smooth crossing of the external borders.
For the period 2014-20, EUR 2.76 billion was originally made available for ISFB funding actions, of which EUR 264 million through grants and other direct actions. In response to the migration crisis, the overall ISFB allocation has been increased.
