Earlier it was reported what needs to be done before visa-free regime is approved.

A year ago, in April 2016, European Commission sent an official proposal on the abolition of visas for Ukrainians. The European Commissioner for Migration, Internal Affairs and Citizenship, Dimitras Avramopulos, explained that Ukraine has fulfilled all the requirements for the necessary reforms. Then the Europeans were concerned about the agreement on the mechanism for canceling visa-free travel, the Netherlands in a referendum opposed the Ukraine-EU association, and Ukraine, with long discussions launched the e-declaration process. All this directly or indirectly delayed the provision of visa-free travel.
