Turkish citizens will be allowed to travel without visas for two months to Germany, and three months to Netherlands and Denmark if they provide written proof at customs that they will be employed to provide services within the EU in professions like architects, builders, lawyers, computer scientists, commercial agents, scientists and lecturers, fitters and instructors installing or repairing machinery or informing of the use thereof, professional athletes and trainers, paid artists and academics, truck drivers carrying commodities. (click here¬†and in Turkish here) I presume this will allow visa-free travel for Turkish academics giving talks in those countries, as long as they are paid for their services (now that’s a happy thought!). That’s only three out of 26 Schengen countries, but the door is ajar.
