Dies ist eine Online-Petition of the European Parliament.


The petitioner denounces a breach of EU law by Spain, having identified a series of irregularities in the application of Community law on international protection. The petitioner points out that the procedures for examining applications for international protection take longer than 24 months. He also indicates that the prior appointment management system accessible through the online government administration system constantly shows a message saying that ‘at this moment there are no appointments available’ when applicants try to make an appointment to renew their documentation, resulting – in the opinion of the petitioner – in a flagrant breach of the obligations concerning documentation vis-à-vis applicants seeking international protection. That collapse of the appointment management system has a highly deleterious effect on the ability to exercise the right to employment, since applicants for international protection are not able to renew their documents in due time and being thus unable to assure their subsistence by their own means, they remain dependent on the public reception system for applicants for international protection. The petitioner also denounces the shortage of staff at the Asylum and Refugee Offices in Spain. Finally, he complains that Directive 2013/32/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 on common procedures for granting and withdrawing international protection and Directive 2013/33/EU of the European Parliament and of the Council of 26 June 2013 laying down standards for the reception of applicants for international protection, which should have been transposed before July 2015, have not yet been transposed properly by the Spanish authorities.
