A visa-free regime between Ukraine and Northern Macedonia will go into effect from December 22. This was announced by State Secretary of Ukraine’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs Andriy Zayats on his Twitter page.
"Visa-free travel to Northern Macedonia is already on a permanent basis: both short- and long-term (immigration) visas have been canceled," Zayats wrote.
The agreement provides the facilitation of travel for citizens of Northern Macedonia and Ukraine without visa requirements, provided that their length of stay does not exceed ninety days during each period of one hundred and eighty days.
“…we would like to add the free roaming to our visa-free regime, which almost three million Ukrainians have used. It is the thing all European states enjoy and what the Ukrainians miss. You can see for yourself how high the prices are as soon as we cross the border of Ukraine. We would like the Ukrainians to have the free crossing and free communications,” Prystaiko said.
He added that Ukraine adopted the necessary laws for implementation of the so-called ‘industrial visa-free regime” within which Ukrainian companies would be able to supply the goods to the EU countries on the simplified procedures.
