Foreign Minister calls on Georgian citizens to take care of all successes achieved on path of European integration

Vice Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Mikheil Janelidze calls on Georgian citizens to take care of all the successes achieved on the path of European integration, including to observe the rules of visa free travel in the EU countries in order to enjoy this goodness in the future.

Janelidze has released a statement regarding the anniversary of the launch of visa liberalization, which states that Georgia continues to fulfill its obligations and implement reforms. “Today, on March 28, exactly one year has passed since the Georgian citizens were granted the right to travel visa-free to the EU countries/Schengen area. 

We already have tangible and concrete results in different directions such as tourism development, deepening of new business relations, activation of students’ exchange programs, partnerships between professionals. During this year, visa-free travel has been used more than 250,000 times by Georgian citizens, which once again demonstrates that Georgia successfully uses the visa-free regime.

Visa-free travel in the EU countries has a great political significance for us, as Georgia has moved closer to the European family, with the EU and its Member States recognizing Georgia as a reliable and worthy partner,”- reads the statement.
