The EU and Ukraine signed a visa liberalization agreement on Wednesday, allowing Ukrainian citizens visa-free travel to EU.
“Today is a historical day for Ukraine, for my 45-million nation. And I am absolutely confident that this is a historical day for the EU,” Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko said at a joint news conference.
Under the scheme, which will enter into force on June, 11, Ukrainians who hold a biometric passport will be able to enter the EU without a visa for 90 days in any 180-day period, for tourism or for business purposes.
The visa exemption applies to all EU countries, except the U.K. and Ireland.
