On June 10, the Cabinet of Ministers supported the initiative of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs that is set to make the procedure for obtaining Ukrainian visas for foreigners more convenient and modern, as well as to increase the safety of travelers. This was announced by Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba, the press service of the ministry reports.
In particular, the innovations will allow foreign diplomatic missions to issue Ukrainian visas using modern digital technologies for collecting biometric information (digitized fingerprints and digitized facial images).
"Acquaintance with Ukraine of a foreigner, who is planning a trip, begins with the obtainment of a Ukrainian visa. Sometimes this is the first meeting with Ukraine. Impressions from this meeting should be as positive as possible. It should be a meeting with a modern progressive country. At the same time, the new procedure will increase the safety of travelers,” Kuleba stated.
As we reported earlier, Ukraine's Foreign Ministry expects the visit of Canada’s mission, which will estimate the possibility of the conclusion of the agreement on a simplified visa regime for the Ukrainians.
