Minister Points to Problems in Strict Visa Checks

Luxembourg, 12 June - Interior Minister Dragutin Mate and his EU colleagues backed in Luxembourg on Tuesday plans for the launch of the Visa Information System (VIS) that will allow data exchange between EU members on short stay visas. While backing the idea in principle, Mate said that the system was too rigid under current plans, which could present problems during the tourism season.
