Croatia has met the conditions for two important economic and tourism projects with the United States

first_imgThe visa-waiver program means that Croatian citizens can travel to the United States without a visa for a maximum period of 90 days, for tourist or business reasons. The visa-free agreement for Croatian citizens should be signed in the coming months, as well as the abolition of visas, as Croatia has met all the conditions in this fiscal year, which ends in the United States on September 30. US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is on an official visit to Croatia today, and a meeting on cooperation and alliance between the two countries was held in Dubrovnik. The US Secretary of State confirmed that the conditions for two extremely important projects, which have been under development for decades, have been met – abolition of visas for Croatian citizens (visa-waiver) and signing an agreement on avoiding double taxation. By the way, only Croatia, Romania, Bulgaria and Cyprus are the only members of the European Union that need a visa for the United States. Photo: US Embassy in Croatialast_img read more

As a result, the Jaguars were forced to pay players back, and Coughlin received criticism for alienating his team through unnecessary punishment.last_img read more
