Colombian citizens may no longer need visas to travel to Spain if EU agrees
11 August 2013 @ 18:07

COLOMBIAN president Juan Manuel Santos says his country's citizens have 'been given a wonderful birthday present' – Spain wants to scrap visa requirements for visitors and residents.

Spanish president Mariano Rajoy wants to eliminate this hassle and bureaucracy for them, and plans to speak to the European Union.
