Greece removes one-day visa requirements for Turkish people

The Greek government has announced that plans in are preparation that will see visa requirements for Turkish citizens who travel to Greece for one day removed.

The Deputy Foreign Minister of Greece, Dimitris Dollis, officially started the legal process in Greece that will see the need for one day visas removed. Parliamentary officials from Greece had asked for the visa requirements to be removed, stating that Greece could benefit economically from removing the need for visas.

The legal proposal by Dollis is expected to be completed within the next week. Turkey had removed the need for a one day visa in 1988. Turkey is going from strength to strength and growing at a rapid rate while Greece is in a sharp decline amid economic struggles that have crippled the nation lately.

The removal of the one day visas would be mutually beneficial for both countries. People in Turkey who need to go to Greece for just one day will be able to do so without the need to spend time and energy applying for a one day visa. It could also boost business ties and see Greece benefit from more investment from their flourishing neighbour Turkey.
