A new visa waiver has been established between the European Union and the Federated States of Micronesia which aims to boost tourism and invigorate business between the two countries.

The short-stay visa allows EU citizens travelling to the territory of the Federated States of Micronesia, and citizens of the Federated States of Micronesia travelling to the EU, to stay for a total of 90-days in any 180-day period.

The short-stay visa was signed between the European Union and the Federated States of Micronesia earlier this week and is already in effect.

In order to benefit from visa-free travel, citizens from the EU and the Federated States of Micronesia must be in possession of a valid ordinary, diplomatic, service/official or special passport.

The Federated States of Micronesia joins Kiribati, Palau, the Republic of Marshall Islands, Samoa, Tonga,Tuvalu and Vanuatu for the visa-free travel to the EU.

Ireland and the United Kingdom are not included in the agreement.
