29/10/2014 - Colombia and Peru fulfil the criteria for visa-free access to the Schengen area: access to documents
The European Commission has concluded that the necessary conditions are met for the start of visa waiver negotiations between the EU and Colombia and Peru.
Once the reports have been discussed in the appropriate committees and groups of the European Parliament and the Council, the Commission will seek authorisation from the Council to negotiate short-stay visa waiver agreements with each of the two countries. If the Council grants such an authorisation, negotiations could start in the first trimester of 2015. Only after the agreements enter into force will visa-free for the citizens of these countries become a reality. This could happen, at the very earliest, in the second half of 2015.
