Tbilisi and Brussels signed agreement on readmission

2010-11-23 11:22

Yesterday agreement on readmission was signed between the EU and Georgia. It describes mutual procedures on repatriation of illegal migrants - RIA Novosti.


Previously the sides signed a document on introduction of the facilitated visa regime for citizens of Georgia.

The procedure of visa regime facilitation for Georgia remains the same as for Russia and Ukraine. It concerns facilitation of issuing Shengen visas for some categories of Georgian citizens, including businessmen, officials, students.

As a pre-requisite of signing this agreement the EU demands parallel signing an agreement on readmission [admission of illegal migrants with Georgian, Russian, or Ukrainian citizenship, banished from the EU]. Actually, the readmission works both ways: the EU also must receive Europeans, banished from Georgia, but the agreement is unlikely to work this way.

This summer 30 Georgians, deported from Poland, arrived in Tbilisi this summer. Past year they illegally penetrated into the country's territory and requested the status of a refugee.

Konstantin Kavtaradze, the ambassador of Georgia to Poland, stated they were not granted it. The ambassador of Poland to Georgia, Ursula Doroszevska, called on republic's citizens not to use illegal ways to obtain refugee status, as now the EU countries are going through an economic crisis.
