BRUSSELS, July 24 (Itar-Tass) —— The European Union and Ukraine have signed an additional agreement on simplifying the visa regime. Ukrainian Foreign Minister Konstantin Grishchenko and European Commissar for Enlargement and Neighborhood Policy Stefan Fule put their signature to this document.
According to Fule, this document is an important step on the way to rapprochement of the peoples of Ukraine and the European Union. However, he found difficulty in replying journalists’ question when the visa-free regime can be introduced between Ukraine and the European Union.
The new document introduces several technical simplifications in the visa regime between the European Union and Ukraine. In particular, the list of documents, which are to be presented for getting visas for representatives of civil society and non-governmental organizations, journalists, relatives of citizens Ukraine and the European Union living abroad, as well as drivers professionally engaged in international transportations, was reduced. Besides, a number of categories of office employees will get the right to get repeated five-year visas.
