The EU and Moldovan authorities will start examining the technical preconditions for the establishment of a visa-free regime for Moldovan citizens. That was concluded today, as the European Commission launched a dialogue on visa-free travel with the Republic of Moldova.
"A future visa-free travel regime would further facilitate people-to-people contacts and strengthen economic, societal and cultural ties between the EU and Moldova", said EU Commissioner for Home Affairs Cecilia Malmström.
Since 1 January 2008, there is already a visa facilitation and readmission agreement in place between the EU and the Republic of Moldova. Read more on the visa dialogue in the press release.
