EU to grant Turkish citizens visa-free travel

  • Turkey will be granted a conditional approval on Wednesday by the European Commission enabling Turkish citizens for visa-free travel within the Schengen area. According to media reports, the approval comes as a part of a deal in which Turkey will take back all migrants who have crossed over to Greece via the Aegean. On May 4, the European Commission will announce that Turkey has by and large met the standards set for the visa liberalization.
