Dzurinda: visas for Turkey could be scrapped in summer

Following a meeting with his Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu yesterday, Slovak foreign affairs minister Mikluas Dzurinda announced the news that Turkey could waive the visa requirement for Slovaks already this summer.

The respective ministries of both countries will now negotiate the issue, but Dzurinda remarked that if consultations go well then Slovaks could be travelling to Turkey visa-free by June before Turkey has a general election.

Turks still need a visa to visit the EU overall, but the country already has visa issues eased up with Italy, with Italians already afforded the option to visit Turkey without a visa. This should help Slovakia’s request and act as a model for a similar situation.
