Ukraine signed an agreement on February 5 on the mutual abolition of visa requirements with the island state of Antigua and Barbuda. This was reported by Ukrainian Embassy in the United States in Facebook.
The solemn ceremony of signing documents was held in Washington with the participation of the Ukrainian Ambassador to the United States Valeriy Chaly and the Ambassador of Antigua and Barbuda to the US Ronald Sanders.
Visa-free agreement provides for stay in these countries for the term not more than 90 days in 180 days
Chaly stressed that the signing of this agreement is not only the development of important tourist and business opportunities for citizens of Ukraine and Antigua and Barbuda. It is also the evidence of establishment of an active political dialogue and cooperation between the two countries, in particular, cooperation in international organizations, assistance in protecting rights and interests of citizens abroad, establishing student exchanges and informing the countries of the Caribbean region about the situation in Ukraine.
Antigua and Barbuda are the state on the islands of Antigua, Barbuda and Redonda in the group of Lesser Antilles in the eastern Caribbean.
As it was reported earlier the government of Japan started working out the issue of visas cancellation for Ukrainians.
"The Cabinet of Ministers of Japan has begun to work on the issue of abolishing visas for Ukrainians, and the parliaments promised to help in every way. It is too early to speak about the terms, but we are working so that the Ukrainian citizens can go without visas for the Olympic Games in Tokyo (2020)," Ukraine’s MP Leonid Yemets wrote.
