European Union Parliament has proposed to issue “humanitarian visas” to promote regular migration and prevent deaths on migration routes to the EU countries.

In a statement, European Parliament said EU countries should be able to issue humanitarian visas at embassies and consulates abroad, so people seeking protection can access Europe without risking their life.

It has asked the European Commission to submit by March 31, 2019, a legislative proposal for the visa.
