Culture and Tourism Minister Pavlos Geroulanos recently spoke about the obstacles posed by the European Union in regards to the abolition of visa restrictions in travel to and from Turkey, during a recent interview to Turkish National TV broadcaster TRT.
According to the culture and tourism minister, the E.U. has created a “technical barrier” in travel between the Turkish and Greek coast because it does not accept the full abolition of visa requirements.
However, the minister assured that the Greek government was in contact with the Greek consulates in Turkey to make the visa process easier for Turkish visitors to Greece.
“We have already increased traffic from Turkey to Greece and I would say that it has doubled since last year,” Mr. Geroulanos said.
