The article provides the analysis of the EU external migration policy. The research aim is to assess its potential for managing international migration both in relatively favorable and crisis conditions and to outline the possibilities of its application in future. The article provides the overview of the EU external migration policy transformation, the assessment of the resources available to the EU for its application and the analysis of difficulties accompanying external migration policy. Conclusions: The EU external migration policy faces a number of difficulties, including the lack of financial resources during crises, the lack of effective incentives for third countries to bear additional burdens in the EU interests, the need to coordinate the actions and conflicting interests among different actors and levels of governance, etc. Despite the difficulties, external dimension became one of the priority areas in the EU immigration policy as a result of the 2014-2016 migration crisis. However, the EU immigration policy in general needs to be updated but the EU is not able to provide any innovative migration governance solutions. Therefore, the EU may find it increasingly difficult to expand its cooperation with third countries for common migration governance in future. In case of protracted crisis and the lack of progress in updating the EU immigration policy, the future of its external dimension seems to be vague.
