Ukraine VISAs.....

Post by maninthestreet » Wed Apr 15, 2009 2:18 pm

Just got back from a short stay in Kiev. It's possible that VISA-free travel to the Ukraine may end soon, at least for citizens of EU countries. The reasons cited for this are:

1) Ukraine gets nothing in return for this VISA-free travel from the EU

2) Too many 'foreign criminals' exploiting VISA-free entry to travel to the Ukraine to commit crime - to be blunt, Ukraine has more than it's fair share of home-grown criminals to have to worry about foreigners comitting crime.

Just an update on the Visa situation. As of right now EU citizens still do not need a visa to enter Ukraine however, given the preliminary results of the recent presidential election that situation may change pretty soon.
