Plans to waive visa requirements for Ukrainians




Plans to waive visa requirements for Ukrainian citizens entering the Schengen area were approved by the Civil Liberties Committee on Monday. If approved by Parliament and Council, it will allow Ukrainians who have a biometric passport to enter the EU area without a visa for 90 days in any 180-day period, for business, tourist or family purposes.

 The resolution drafted by Mariya Gabriel (EPP, BG), was approved by 38 votes to 4 with 1 abstention.
