Estonia Supports Quick Conclusion of EU-Georgia Visa Facilitation and Readmission Agreement


Foreign Minister Urmas Paet stated that Estonia supports the quick concluding of a visa facilitation and readmission agreement between the European Union and Georgia.

Paet stated that the goal of concluding a readmission agreement is to develop co-operation between the countries in order to organise as effectively as possible the departure of individuals that have unlawfully entered the country or are unlawfully residing in the country. “The readiness to implement a readmission procedure is one of the most important topics for Georgia in the framework of European Union immigration policy,” he added.

The Estonian Public Service Academy in co-operation with the Police and Border Guard Board will help to organise a readmission procedure training for up to ten officials from the Interior Ministry, Justice Ministry and Ministry of Refugees and Accommodation that deal with readmission issues. During the course of the training, the Georgian officials would gain experiences and information about the readmission procedure in Estonia as a European Union member state.

The project is being funded by 325 000 kroons allocated from the Foreign Ministry’s budget for development co-operation and humanitarian aid.

Georgia is one of Estonia’s priority partner countries for foreign policy and development co-operation.
