Email conversation between Frontex and external partners (Member States, European Insitutions and Agencies and infrastructural industry) about readmission and return operations between Turkey and the Greek Island of Lesvos, Chios, Samos, Leros and Kos.

Tender contracts between Frontex and external commercial partners about readmission and return operations between Turkey and the Greek Island of Lesvos, Chios, Samos, Leros and Kos.

Dear Mr. Teunissen,

As the scope of your application is considerably wide and would thus constitute a significant administrative challenge for several units, we would propose - in order to find a commonly acceptable fair solution - to address it as three individual applications to be processed consecutively. The framework of Regulation (EC) No 1049/2001 would be applicable for each individual application and please indicate the first application to be addressed.

Please be informed that Frontex is only able to register your applications once such a solution is found.

Yours sincerely,
Transparency Office
