EU: Entry visas for Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina : Regulation amending Council Regulation (EC) No 539/2001 listing the third countries whose nationals must be in possession of visas when crossing the external borders


Entry visas for Albania and Bosnia-Herzegovina: Regulation amending Council Regulation (EC) No 539/2001 listing the third countries whose nationals must be in possession of visas when crossing the external borders and those whose nationals are exempt from that requirement (pdf), Background Note (pdf). This proposal moves the two countries from the list of those needing a visa for entry to the EU. Visa-free travel is available to those holding "biometric passports". The UK has opted out.

And see: Commission statement (pdf) which says: "Emergency consultation arrangements will be introduced so that the European Union and its Member States can, in cooperation with the authorities of the countries concerned, react in the best possible conditions to any specific difficulties which might arise with flows of persons from the countries of the Western Balkans."
