Since 2017 the EU could cancel visas for Turkey. Turkish citizens can travel to the EU without a visa if Ankara will improve border controls and will issue biometric passports, said Johannes Hahn. The European Union could cancel entry visas in 2017 for citizens of Turkey. “On my opinion, it is possible to cancel the visa in two years for Turkish citizens entering to the Schengen countries if they will complete the necessary conditions for this.” Negotiations on Turkey’s accession to the EU began in 2005 – 18 years after the submission of the relevant application by Ankara. In 2013, the parties began talks on the possibility of visa-free entrance.
