European Commissioner for Migration Dimitris Avramopoulos expects that visa-free regime for citizens of Georgia will be approved at the beginning of summer; a month later – for Ukrainian citizens, informed the Commissioner during a briefing in Brussels, presenting the legislative bill for Georgia, reports Eurointegration.
“Everything will be ready at the beginning of summer. As you know the adoption of such a decision takes two-three months. Since we have already launched the procedure, I assume, it won’t take longer”, - the Commissioner said.
“We are looking forward to the moment when citizens of Georgia can travel to the EU without visas. The same as Europeans travel to Georgia”, - he added.
“As for Ukraine, it is showing a lot of progress. We are working to submit a legislative bill to cancel visas for Ukrainians. We expect that next year Ukraine will be on the list of countries, that don’t require a visa to travel to the EU”, - Avramopoulos said.
