Visa-free regime for Ukraine with EU finally signed

On Wednesday, 17th of May 2017 in Strasbourg, President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko took part in the signing ceremony of the legislative act on abolishing visa requirements for Ukrainians for trips to the countries of the European Union and the Schengen zone.

The document was signed by President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani and Minister for Home Affairs and National Security of Malta Carmelo Abela.

According to the legislative order, Ukraine is now included to the list of countries whose citizens no more require a visa when travelling for short stays of up to 90 days to the Schengen area.

Now the legislative act should be published in the EU's Official Journal and the visa-free regime will come into force in 20 days. As expected, the visa-free travels for Ukrainian citizens are to come into force on June 11, 2017.
