EU Decision To Grant Visa-Free Travel To Ukrainians Becomes Official

Quote:
May 22,2017

BRUSSELS -- The European Union's decision granting visa liberalization for Ukraine has been published in the EU's official journal, paving the way for the visa-free regime to enter into force on 11 June, 20 days after its publication on May 22. The document was signed on May 17 in Strasbourg by EU Parliament and European Council representatives. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, who attended the signing ceremony, called it a historic day for the nation.
Ukraine's 45 million citizens can now travel to and within all European Union countries without a visa for 90 days. The visa-free regime also applies to four Schengen Area countries that are not in the EU: Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland. To facilitate visa-free travel and meet EU standards, Ukraine is providing new bio-metric passports to its citizens.

It is a major step in Ukraine's integration into the European community of nations and away from Russia. A visa is now required for all Russians to legally enter Ukraine.

Interesting to see if this expands to other countries that currently need visas to travel within the UK.

Keep us posted.
