EU, Armenia Sign Visa Facilitation Deal

December 17, 2012 Leave a comment Go to comments

The European Union and Armenia took a further step towards a wide-ranging “association” accord on Monday when they signed a deal to ease visa requirements for Armenians planning to visit EU countries.

Foreign Minister Edward Nalbandian, his Cypriot counterpart Erato Kozakou-Marcoullis and EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmstrom signed the agreement in Brussels during a session of the EU-Armenia Cooperation Council.

The agreement is meant to give Armenian nationals access to the so-called Schengen zone encompassing much of Europe with fewer documents and at a lower cost. Also, some categories of travelers such as university students, academics and state officials will now be eligible for long-term and multiple-entry Schengen visas.
