The Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper confirmed on Friday that visa
requirements will be lifted for Czech citizens in the next few weeks. On a
visit to Brussels, Mr. Harper said that one of his country's goals is
visa-free travel between Canada and the European Union.
Canada re-introduced visas for Czechs four years ago, after it received a
large number of asylum applications from mostly Romani Czechs during the two
years that visa-free entry was in place.
