48 views

Franco Frattini, Vice-President of the EC in charge of Justice, Freedom and Security, met in Belgrade with Boris Tadić, President of Serbia, and Bozidar Djelic, Deputy Serbian Prime Minister. They launched the first Visa Free Travel Dialogue between Serbia and EU and gave a joint press conference. The Council of the European Union on 28 January welcomed the intention of the European Commission to launch a visa free travel dialogue with Serbia and all other countries in the region and expressed its readiness to further discuss this issue, based on the Commission's forthcoming Communication on the Western Balkans. Serbian citizens are from 1 January 2008 already enjoying the benefits of the visa facilitation regime which sets out uniformed visa application and issuing procedures for a broad range of categories of citizens ranging from students, sportsmen and women, cultural workers, journalists, people visiting family members living in the EU, people in need of medical treatment, economic operators working with EU companies, etc. The visa facilitation agreement also foresees a lower cost of visas, longer duration of visas, free visas for children and pensioners, etc.
