The Foreign Ministry of Ukraine 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 as the ministry reported.
“On the request of the Foreign Minister, Ms. Ambassador confirmed the readiness to facilitate the visit of the proper estimated mission of Canada to Ukraine,” the message said.
This mission will determine the compatibility of Ukraine to the criteria for inclusion in the list of countries, in which citizens have the right for the entrance to the territory of Canada on a simplified procedure. It will also determine the further steps, which had to be made by the Ukrainian government to get the simplified visa regime.
In September 2019, the government provided the program for simplification of the visa regime with the majority of the world countries, including Canada.
As we reported, Foreign Minister of Ukraine Dmytro Kuleba agreed with EU Commissioner for Neighbourhood and Enlargement Oliver Varhelyi to accelerate joint work over the conclusion of the agreement on ‘industrial visa-free regime’ between Ukraine and the EU.
