Information on the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs' visit to Georgia


On the 25th of February 2013, the EU Commissioner for Home Affairs, Ms Cecillia Malmström, paid a visit to Georgia during which she met the Georgian Foreign Minister, Ms Maia Panjikidze, and delivered Georgia's Visa Liberalization Action Plan (VLAP).

This Action Plan is an instrument for visa dialogue between Georgia and the EU; if successfully implemented by Georgia, it will grant its citizens a visa-free regime for travel to the EU (Schengen countries).

Visa-free travel to the EU is of strategic importance to Georgia, as it is an effective mechanism for bringing Georgia closer to the EU and an important instrument for strengthening people-to-people contacts.

Georgia's Action Plan includes both a legislative and an implementation phase which call for reforms to be carried out in the spheres of information security, border management, migration, public order and security and human rights.

During the Action Plan's legislative phase, the Georgian government's task is to successfully outline and put into practice measures for reform. When this first phase is deemed completed, EU experts will assess the Georgian government's work. If their assessment is positive, the Georgian government will be able to move on to the implementation phase.

During her visit to Georgia, Ms Malmström will also meet the Georgian President, Prime Minister, Minister of Internal Affairs, and State Minister for European and Euro-Atlantic Integration.
