The resolution on the introduction of a visa-free regime for Georgian citizens was published in the Official Journal of the European Union on the 8th of March. This resolution will enter into force 20 days after publication on the 28th of March.
The abolition of visas with the European Union will allow Georgian citizens who have biometric passports to enter the territory of Schengen countries visa-free for the period of 90 days in six months. The policy does not grant the right to employment in EU countries. The regime covers 22 EU countries, excepting Ireland, the United Kingdom, Croatia, Cyprus, Romania and Bulgaria. Visa-free entry also includes Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland.
On the 2nd of February, the European Parliament voted in favor of a visa-free regime for Georgian citizens. On 27th of February, this resolution was approved by the European Council.
