The signature of the agreement between Colombia and the European Union was signed this wednesday (June 9th) to eliminate the Schengen visa requirement for Colombian citizens. In a formal ceremony, Colombian president Juan Manuel Santos thanked the EU’s decision on the matter and said that thanks to this agreement Colombia will have a “very important future and that it is a major step.”
“This is a historic day for Colombia” said Santos.
With this signature begins the final stage of a process that will end at the latest in October 2015.
By October 2015, Colombian citizens will be abel to travel up to 90 days to the EU without a visa.
