On 15 February 2014 a presentation for students on “Visa Facilitation Agreement between the EU and Armenia” took place in Yerevan.
Ehtel Halliste, Head of the EU Centre, talked on the agreement which recently came into force and its benefits for young people. She was able to pass on the good news that, from now on, students would be exempt from visa fees, albeit she gave them the reminder that: ‘despite all the advantages that you will have travelling to the EU countries of the Schengen agreement, you will still have to prove that you have a place to stay, enough money in your bank account, and a ticket home.
Since 1 January 2014 the agreements on visa facilitation and readmission between Armenia and the EU have come into force. The general aim is to support mobility and communication between Armenian citizens and the EU on different categories, such as science, education, culture and business relations. The main advantage is that a number of applicants, such as students, pupils, scientists, artists and sportsmen will be exempt from visa fees.
