European Commission publishes guidance for Member States to guarantee family reunification

On 3 April 2014, the European Commission adopted a Communication to present guidance for the correct and meaningful application of the Family Reunification Directive (2003/86/EC) by Member States.

The Communication addresses a number of issues, such as the lack of information on and assistance in the family reunification procedure, the cost of family reunification processes, the administrative hurdles, the duration of procedures (often up to 2 to 3 years), and the restrictive interpretation of dependency.
