EU Journal Publishes Georgia’s Schengen Regulation
Civil Georgia, Tbilisi / 8 Mar.'17 / 13:05

The Official Journal of the European Union published on March 8 the regulation of the European Parliament and the EU Council on visa liberalization for Georgians.

“It is considered that Georgia has met all the benchmarks set out in the Visa Liberalization Action Plan presented to the Georgian Government in February 2013, and therefore fulfils the relevant criteria for its citizens to be exempted from the visa requirement when travelling to the territory of Member States,” the legislative text stated.

The regulation will enter into force 20 days later, enabling Georgian citizens with a biometric passport to travel to the Schengen area for up to 90 days for business, tourist or family purposes without a visa.
