Ukraine's visa centre started working in the Iranian capital, Tehran. Ukraine's Foreign Ministry reported this on late Sunday.
According to the authority's press office, the operation of the visa centre will lay within the responsibility of VF Worldwide Holding Ltd.
The newly created authority will be only providing technical support and cooperate with those who appeal for visas. All decisions regarding granting or denying visas will be still made by the Ukrainian consulate in Iran.
Earlier, Ukraine and Serbia have signed an agreement on expanding a visa-free regime between the countries. President Poroshenko said this following the results of the meeting with his Serbian counterpart.
“We have expanded the agreement on the visa-free regime with Serbia. Now, Ukrainians can stay in this country for up to 90 days. Such agreement was signed in Belgrade today, ” the President wrote in Twitter.
“Just a several weeks ago we agreed that we would sign an agreement extending the time frames of the visa-free stay of Serbian citizens in Ukraine and Ukrainian citizens in Serbia to improve the ties between our people and facilitate visits of tourists, entrepreneurs and cultural figures to one another. I am sure that the document we signed today would play a very important role. We also agreed to create a commission that would study general political questions of our history,” Poroshenko noted at the joint briefing with Aleksandar Vučić, Serbian President.
