Joint discussions between Peru and EU to lead to visa relaxation for Peruvians

Peru and the European Union are jointly taking steps to aid the journey of Peru citizens into the EU by doing away with the Schengen visa. In a promulgation by the EU ambassador in Peru, Irene Horejs said that these two regions would be moving ahead in the next two months to have talks and negotiations about the technical issues involved in the removal of visa process for the Peru nationals.

The Ambassador went on to say to a leading daily that these discussions related to border protection would be carried out in February and March. The technical issues are nothing but the estimates that the tourists provide and the way it will be transferred to immigration authorities in the EU, in a bid to ensure border security.

With the abolishing of the Schengen visa, Peru citizens will be permitted to enter into the Schengen region with the aid of a tourist visa which would allow a traveler to stay for a period of three months. This move would greatly benefit engagement, interaction as well as booming investments. The withdrawal of this visa requirement would enhance small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) of Europe to invest in Peru. 

If the negotiations are carried out as per plans, the visa relaxation will get finished within the second half of the year. It would allow easy entry into 22 of the 28 EU Schengen countries, along with four countries outside the European bloc.
