Lawmakers in Bulgaria's Parliament are due to hold a final vote on amendments to current legislation on migrants.

The move will introduce the notion of "international protection" which adds the terms of "refugee status" and "humanitarian status" in a way conforming Bulgarian legislation to common EU rules.

Last week the EU Commission sent two formal notices to Bulgaria over its failure to apply EU directives on granting asylum, including the minimum standards that should be adopted with regard to several issues such as education, access to the labor market, healthcare, accommodation, etc.
