Earlier, the consideration date, according to the European Parliament website, was Jan. 18, 2017.
On Dec. 15, the European Parliament is going to approve a visa suspension mechanism so vital for paving the way to visa liberalization for Ukraine and Georgia.
This week, the EU will also embark on an inter-institutional trialogue concerning visa waiver for Georgia, which the European Parliament plans to finally approve on Jan. 18.
According to a common procedure, after the European Parliament takes a positive decision, it must be approved by the EU Council and will take effect 21 days after this approval.
If the European Parliament approves visa waiver for Ukraine on Feb. 1, it will come into force no earlier than March 2017.
