Visa-free regime for Ukraine – starting from June 11!

The last step remains, after which, within 20 days, a visa-free regime for citizens of Ukraine will come into force.

Today, on April 26, the Committee of Permanent Representatives of the EU, at a meeting with Brussels, approved the granting of a visa-free regime to Ukraine with Europe.

This became known from the twitter of the Brussels correspondent of Radio Free Europe Ricard Jozwiak:

“EU ambassadors approve visa liberalization for Ukraine. EU ministers will approve the deal on May 11th.”

After the EU ambassadors approved the visa-free regime for Ukraine, it remains for the EU Council to approve it – this should happen already on May 11.

This will be followed by the signing of the agreement and the publication of the decision in the Official Journal of the EU. The visa-free regime should enter into force 20 days after the publication of the decision – that is, approximately from June 11, Ukrainians will be able to travel to the EU countries without the need to apply for a Schengen visa.

In a few months, the low-cost Ryanair will start flights from Kiev and Lviv, Qatar Airways should come in by the end of 2017, and we hope that the visa-free regime will open up many other equally interesting and profitable opportunities for our travelers.

We remind you that a prerequisite for visa-free travel in Europe is the presence of a biometric passport. To get a passport with a biometric chip, you need to contact the department of the migration service. Addresses in Kiev:
