02 February, 2017
Prime Minister of Georgia Giorgi Kvirikashvili has thanked the EU Parliament for the positive decision on Georgia’s visa liberalization.

He has posted this on twitter saying this day is truly historic.

“Congratulations! This is a trully Historic Day! Thank you, EU Parliament for granting visa free travel to citizens of Georgia!” the post reads.

The EU Parliament has backed Georgia’s visa liberalization. The voting process was held several minutes ago. 553 MEPs have voted in favor of Georgia’s visa free
travel, 66 were against, 28 abstained.

The voting was preceded by the debates.

The decision does not mean that the visa-free travel will automatically take effect from today. Certain procedures are still left.
