The Agreement between the European Union and Republic of Armenia facilitating the issuing of visas entered into force on 1 January 2014. The Agreement established, on the basis of reciprocity, legally binding rights and obligations to simplify the procedures for issuing visas to Armenian citizens.

Article 12 of the Agreement set up a Joint Committee tasked, inter alia, with monitoring the implementation of the Agreement. The Joint Committee noted the need for common guidelines to ensure that the Schengen Member States’ consulates implement the Agreement in a fully harmonised way and to clarify the relationship between the Agreement and the contracting parties’ other provisions that continue to apply to visa issues not covered by the Agreement.

These Guidelines are not part of the Agreement and are not legally binding. However, it is highly recommended that diplomatic and consular staff consistently follow them.
