Visa topics are especially relevant in Ukraine, in particular, issues relating to the issuance of Schengen visas. European integration processes, subject to certain conditions, could be a catalyst to simplify border crossing procedures for citizens of Ukraine.
- 41 countries have visa-free regime with EU countries. In particular, citizens of 5 Balkan countries have the right of visa-free entry to the eurozone. And the prerequisite for this was the implementation of conditions similar to those that Ukraine must implement - Svitlana Mytryayeva said.
