Visas for Ukrainians became even less affordable
Due to currency exchange rate, it has become more difficult for Ukrainians to receive "Schengen" visas.
It's all because of the unwritten rule of the EU embassies: visa is issued if applicant has an income of 300-400 euros per month in hryvnia equivalent. But while earlier this amount was equal to 3,000-4,000 UAH, now at the new exchange rate it is 9,500-12,500.
According to a representative of one of the tour operators, for now, it is enough to have a salary of 3,500-4,000 UAH. "But you must carry an equivalent of 40-45 euros (Poland, Hungary, the Baltic states), and sometimes - 60-65 euros (Germany, France, Italy). And that is 1,200 to 2,000 UAH per day" - the representative of the company said.
