On 17 May 2017, the legislative act finalizing the visa-free regime between Ukraine and the EU was signed in the European Parliament.
It is expected that starting 11 June 2017, Ukrainians will be able to travel without visas to EU countries within the Schengen area.
The new rules are: to stay for a period of up to 90 days out of 180, to have a biometric passport, to have medical and car insurance, to have sufficient funds and be able to justify aim of traveling. Residency, employment, and long-term studying will still require visas, as does traveling to the UK and Ireland, which are not part of the Schengen Area,
Euromaidan Press has prepared a map detailing where Ukrainians will be able to travel freely.
