BRUSSELS, March 1. /TASS/. The European Council and the European Parliament have reached a tentative agreement to cancel the visa regime for Ukrainian passport holders, the European Parliament said in a statement.
"Ukrainian citizens will be able to travel to the EU visa free under an informal deal struck by Parliament and Council negotiators on Tuesday," the statement reads.
"Once the change enters into force, and provided they have biometric passports, they will be able to enter the EU for up to 90 days in any 180-day-period for business, tourist or family purposes," the European Parliament said.
The agreement is yet to be approved by the Civil Liberties Committee and Parliament as a whole, before being formally approved by the Council of Ministers.
On December 18, 2015 the European Commission recommended that the EU Council of Ministers urgently considered waiving visa requirements for citizens of Georgia, Ukraine and the self-proclaimed republic of Kosovo.
