The coronavirus pandemic will not affect Ukraine's visa-free regime with the European Union. This was announced by Deputy Head of the Office of the President of Ukraine Ihor Zhovkva, the press service of the President reports.
"I have not heard from any of our interlocutors (representative of a foreign state - ed.) that this may be a reason to close the border for Ukrainians or, moreover, to abolish the visa-free regime. As, by the way, with others - we have a visa-free regime not only with the European Union," Zhovkva said.
According to him, the states will gradually open their borders to foreigners.
As we reported earlier, the EU ministers of tourism decided to develop a certificate of security in the sphere of tourism under the provisional name - COVID-passport.
"We have finished the informal conference of the ministers with the participation of all countries-members and European Commissioner for Internal Market Thierry Breton. We reached several conclusions, particularly, in the organization of the joint European approach to emerging from the crisis. It will include the creation of joint protocols and measures in the spheres of health and security. The ministers agreed that the common document under provision name Covid-passport should be created and it will work all over the EU," Croatian Tourism Minister Gari Cappelli stated.
