The Council of the European Union approved the decision, which allows the countries-members to open the border for particular categories of the Ukrainians and citizens of other third countries, as Yevropeiska Pravda reported.
The EU state-members have a right to open the entrance for the next categories of the citizens: people who travel for education; sailors heading to the vessel; citizens who travel through the EU territory by transit and highly qualified employees from the third countries if their employment is necessary from the economic point of view and cannot be postponed or fulfilled abroad.
Besides, the permission for entrance is kept for the citizens of Ukraine who have already been in the exclusion list, particularly, members of the families of the EU citizens; people with a residence permit in the EU or similar document, seasonal workers; diplomats and so on.
As we reported, the European Union has reduced the list of countries for which it will open borders on July 1. Now the list does not include Ukraine.
Besides, Ukraine occupied the second place among the countries of Europe, where the greatest daily growth in the number of cases of infection with coronavirus is observed.
