It is finished! Visa-free regime for Ukraine – approved!
Today, something happened that we have all been looking forward to in recent weeks: the Council of Ministers of the European Union approved a decision on granting a visa-free regime for Ukraine. I wrote about this in my Twitter Radio Free Europe’s Brussels correspondent Ricard Jozwiak:
This decision indicates that a visa-free regime will be introduced for Ukraine, as previously planned, from 11 June. All that remains is the formal signing of documents on granting Ukrainians the opportunity to travel to EU countries without visas, which has been appointed by the European Parliament for May 17.
Petro Poroshenko will arrive at the signing ceremony in Strasbourg. According to the President, visa liberalization for Ukraine is an important step for Ukraine, which allows it to be a full-fledged part of a single European civilizational space.
Already on June 11, citizens of Ukraine will be able to travel to the EU countries with a biometric passport and without a visa.
Ukrainians will be able to enter the following countries without visas: Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Germany, Greece, Denmark, Estonia, Iceland, Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania , Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, Finland, France, Croatia, Czech Republic, Switzerland and Sweden.
It will also open the way to Ukraine for many low-cost airlines and carriers. We remind you that Ryanair will fly from Ukraine in autumn and now you can book tickets and plan trips at very competitive prices. Qatar Airways also announced the launch of flights from Ukraine by the end of this year. In addition, negotiations are underway with several more low-cost airlines, which express their readiness to start flights from Ukraine.
