US experts are to reach Romania this month for evaluations of the implementation of the Visa Waiver. Authorities are to draw a calendar for including Romania in this program meant to do away with the visas now mandatory for those Romanian citizens who wish to travel to the US.
Romania's interior minister Cristian David has already provided the US authorities with an evaluation of the situation, as announced by the Interior Ministry's Press Office. According to the latter source, Romania has been intensifying efforts to secure borders and at present it is working to settle biometric passports so that Romania would join the above-mentioned program.
The US press was reporting last summer that Romania could be left out together with more European states, because the number of solicitations for visas dismissed in this country was over the 10% limit admitted. (D.E.)
