Interesting positive outcome from the now infamous Bulgarian nurses case.
According to the BBC :
"The BBC's Rana Jawad in Tripoli says that as part of the deal the EU isHey that means my plans to visit Paris could be even shorter term now :P
set to significantly ease restrictions on visas for citizens, which could see
Libyans obtain them within 48 hours."
However a big dampener :( on this is the following from a recent article in the Tripoli Post .
"The MoU signed between Libya and the EU also contains a series of
commitments from the bloc in various areas,. [...] Other measures include
scholarships and training for Libyan students in European universities in all
subjects and the issuing of visas in exchange for
the dropping of visa requirements for EU citizens visiting
Libya." ( emphasis mine)
What is this ? you drop visas for EU citizens while the EU reduces the minimum time for Libyans to get a visa from 15 days to 48hrs?
I don't call that a good deal at all. It smacks too much of the way Westerners are allowed in some Arab countries with no visa or with visa on arrival at the port of entry while the people from those Arab countries still need a visa to go to the Western countries. But I can't blame the West here LOL.
