2011-03-01 14:34

14041.jpegGeorgian president's Press Speaker Manana Mandzhgaladze considers a decision on introducing a facilitated visa regime with the European Union to be an important step on the way of Tbilisi and Brussels' rapprochement.


Let us remind you that a facilitated procedure of issuing visas to EU countries for the citizens of Georgia comes into force today. A relevant agreement was signed between Georgia and the countries of the European Union in June 2010. However, the agreement was not joined by Great Britain, Denmark, Ireland, Island, Norway, Switzerland and Lichtenstein.

According to the documents, the fees connected with considering applications for visa for all citizens of Georgia will be reduced from 60 to 35 euros.

The facilitated visa issuance procedure covers 13 categories of persons, including close relatives, members of official delegations, schoolchildren, students, persons arriving to receive medical treatment or visit graves, journalists, businessmen, members of civil society to undergo training, take part in workshops, conferences and other. Pensioners, children up to 12, students, journalists - 12 categories in the aggregate - will be exempted from paying visa fees.

According to VZGLYAD, Mandzhgaladze expressed assuredness that the decision will have a great political meaning for Georgia.
