HC Deb 16 January 1978 vol 942 c8W
Mr. Hastings

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign and Commonwealth Affairs whether it is possible for British subjects to visit East European Communist States without a visa; and, if not, what is the average time required to obtain such a visa.

Mr. Luard

British citizens require a visa to visit all Eastern European countries except Yugoslavia. It is not possible to assess the average time required to obtain a visa since the majority of applications are made privately direct to the Eastern European embassies.
