From Schengen countries to Grenada without a visa
More and more countries are entering agreements on the introduction of visa-free travel. Grenada has now abolished visas for the Schengen countries.
Negotiations on visa-free travel between the Schengen countries and five Caribbean countries (Grenada, St. Lucia, Dominica, the Grenadines, and Trinidad and Tobago) have taken place. On 28 May 2015 the representatives of Grenada and the European Union signed a historic document. EU citizens may now visit Grenada visa-free for up to 90 days in any 180 day period.
The same applies to Grenadian citizens wishing to visit Europe. This visa-free travel applies only to the European parts of France and the Netherlands.
Economic experts have predicted a significant increase in the flow of European tourists to this Caribbean paradise and, as a result of this, a growth in the income of tourism business owners. European officials have called the signing of the document a great success in the relations between the EU and Grenada.
Visas are also no longer necessary between Grenada and four countries outside the Schengen zone (Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Iceland, and Norway).
The next step is the introduction of visa-free travel between the EU and four other Caribbean countries (Barbados, the Bahamas, St. Kitts and Nevis, and Antigua and Barbuda). Negotiations for this have been under way since 2009.
