Documentation for claim
Period/date: 7. December 2016
The process of a visa-free regime is well underway. The Council, Commission, and European Parliament agreed on Thursday 8 December on an emergency brake to suspend visa waivers, ending an EU dispute holding this up: http://www.consilium.europa.eu/en/press/press-releases/2016/12/07-visa-suspension-mechanism/. Now the process continues and whereas there is not yet a concrete date when visa liberalisation will become effective for Georgia, it will hopefully be very soon.
