EU proposes visa free travel for UkraineComments
The European Union is proposing visa-free travel of up to 90 days to Ukrainians. It is being seen as a reward to the country for making significant judicial and security reforms.
The proposal needs approval from the European Parliament and EU member states but could come into force late summer.
The proposal to transfer Ukraine to the list of countries whose citizens can travel without a visa to the Schengen area follows Migration Commission confirmation last December that Ukraine successfully met all benchmarks under the EU Visa Liberalization Action Plan.
