The Armenian Ambassador believes that the EU should allow visa-free entry for Armenians

Ambassador-at-Large Marukyan emphasized that Armenia has already carried out reforms that give the country the right to conclude a visa liberalization agreement, and he hopes that the EU will abolish the Schengen visa requirements for Armenian citizens as early as 2023.

“The time has come for the EU to adopt the decision to liberalize the visa regime with Armenia. Armenia received this right through reforms. And I hope that the EU will lift the Schengen visa requirements for our citizens in 2023,” — Armenian Ambassador-at-Large wrote on his social media page.

Since Armenia has not yet reached an agreement on visa liberalization with the EU, its citizens are required to obtain a visa before traveling to Europe. 

Schengen visa — this is a short-term visa that allows its holders to enter the Schengen countries for up to 90 days within a 180-day period.

The list includes: a correctly completed visa application form, two standard photographs taken within the last three months, as well as a passport no older than ten years and valid for at least three months after the date of the planned stay in the Schengen.

Except To do this, you must submit a medical insurance policy, booked round-trip tickets, a voucher from the hotel, proof of financial solvency.
