EU: European Commission: Sixth report on certain third countries' maintenance of visa requirements in breach of the principle of reciprocity


EU: European Commission: Sixth report on certain third countries' maintenance of visa requirements in breach of the principle of reciprocity (pdf)

"When addressing the other remaining cases of non-reciprocity, i.e. as regards the U.S. (visa requirement for Bulgaria, Cyprus, Romania and Poland) and Canada (visa requirement for Bulgaria and Romania), the EU is confronted with the limits of its reciprocity mechanism as set out in the current acquis. In these cases indeed Member States are considered by third countries not to meet objective criteria for visa waiver set out unilaterally by these third countries in their domestic legislation (e.g. not issuing biometric passports, not meeting thresholds set for visa refusal and/or overstay rates)." (emphasis added).
