EU Parliament approves cancellation of visa regime for Ukrainian, Georgian nationals
The European Parliament on Thursday approved the completion of the legislative process to cancel the visa regime with the EU for citizens of Ukraine and Georgia. The decision was made by the majority of MEPs, Sputnik reports.
The proposal for the visa waiver for Georgia was issued by the European Commission on March 9 since the country met the conditions for the visa requirement exemption. On July 7, the European Parliament's Committee on Foreign Affairs also recommended to grant visa-free travel to the residents of Ukraine, Georgia and Kosovo.
