BRUSSELS, September 5. /TASS/. The European Parliament's Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs discussed on Monday the situation around visa liberalization for Ukrainian citizens but refrained from putting this matter for voting.
The committee noted that it stands for easing visa issuance procedures for Ukraine but on condition of its implementation of all necessary requirements, as was done by Georgia and Kosovo.
Earlier in the day, the European Parliament’s committee voted in favor of lifting visa restrictions for the citizens of Georgia and Kosovo. The final decision on visa liberalization is yet to be made by the European Union Council and the European Parliament. It is expected to be done by mid-October.
On December 18, 2015, the European Commission said that the European Union should offer visa-free short-stay travel within the Schengen zone for citizens of Ukraine, Georgia, and Kosovo.
