Europe Without Barriers within a visa dialogue

Our organization became a part of the Ukrainian side at the Joint Committee of experts of Ukraine and EU dealing with the implementation of Visa Facilitation Agreement. Our monitoring data became an important source of information for the committee.

Experts of EWB developed recommendations that broadened the existing Agreement by extending preferential categories of the persons and rights of applicants to obtain multiple-entry visas, which were fully implemented in the new version of the Agreement in 2013.

EWB activists filled the communication gap between consulates and applicants by working as “public reception”. We have collected and processed the problematic cases of visa applications and given appropriate consultations. Practical advices were developed to effectively implement the Visa Facilitation Agreement and which were actively circulated and discussed with potential applicants.
