Visa Free Entry to US Still a Year Away

Croatia73Croatians being able to freely enter the United States without a visa is still at least a year away, Croatia’s President Ivo Josipović said after holding talks with US Vice President Joe Biden in Washington yesterday…

“A no-visa regime will arrive before long… In theory, within a year,” Josipović told Croatia’s RTL television, adding that he has been informed that all requirements have been met regarding the visa free regime, and that it is before Congress currently to be rubber stamped.

Josipović and Biden also discussed the avoidance of double taxation during their meeting.

“This issue is before US tax bodies which are evaluating how useful it is to the US side in terms of trade. If there will be energy projects, we will certainly come to an agreement with the US side,” said Josipović.

The Croatian President is now off to Houston, where he will attend an energy forum to present to perspective investors and aim to ease fears about investing in Croatia.

“Croatia is having a hard time coming out of the crisis and plans on an energy hub which guarantee energy independence for Central and Eastern Europe can dramatically change the future for the better. It’s up to all of us to do our best for this project to succeed,” said the President.
