Publication date: 2016-07-01 Georgia-EU Association Agreement has come in force!

On 1 July 2016 the EU-Georgia Association Agreement came into force in compliance with its Article 431, after the EU Foreign Affairs Council announced its decision to end the procedures needed for ratification of the AA. The laborious process of ratification lasted less than two years and involved the European Parliament, 28 EU Member States and the legislative bodies of Georgia. The ratification of the Association Agreement in such short terms points to the EU Member States’ firm support for Georgia’s European path. 1 July is yet another important date in the history of Georgia-EU relations, after the signature of the Association Agreement. With the ratification, the Association Agreement officially becomes a major legal framework for an absolutely new and higher level of co-operation with the European Union.

Publication date: 2017-04-25 First visa-free visit to Europe

Georgian government delegation led by Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili in company with Georgian students and representatives of various communities travelled to Europe on the first flight after the launch of visa-free travel with the EU. 
“It is the first historical visa-free travel of Georgian citizens to the EU/Schengen area. Visa liberalization offers Georgian citizens a broad spectrum of opportunities. Here are students who can freely establish contacts with their European friends and colleagues. Here are also businessmen who will be able to find partners throughout Europe, across the 500-million market. Visa-free travel also gives representatives of culture an access to various European programmes and funds and an opportunity to develop joint projects together with European partners” – Mikheil Janelidze said.  

The Georgian delegation will first arrive in Athens - the cradle of the European civilization, where they will take part in the Conference titled “Georgia from Europe to Europe”. While in Greece, the Georgian Prime Minister will meet his Greek counterpart Alexis Tsipras.

Members of the Georgian delegation will visit the historical part of the city and then will leave for Brussels where they will hold meetings Donald Tusk, President of the European Council and Jean-Claude Juncker, President of the European Commission. A reception evening will be held in Brussels on the occasion of Georgia’s visa liberalization.
