Visa-free regime can make it not earlier than autumn or next year. About this in the Parliament on air of TV channel “112 Ukraine” was declared by the extra fractional people’s Deputy Mikhail Golovko.

“I think it will be somewhere closer to the fall or next year, not before. We were promised in 2015, we were promised in 2016. Most likely, it will be only in 2017”, – he said.

Recall President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko said that the European Union will provide a visa-free regime for Ukrainians after a few months.

On 20 April the European Commission invited the European Parliament and the Council of the European Union to cancel visas for Ukrainian citizens.

Once the proposal is accepted by the European Parliament and the Council, the citizens of Ukraine with biometric passports can travel without visas for up to 90 days in the Schengen area. Visa-free regime will apply to all member States of the EU except Ireland and the UK, as well as four associated countries (Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway and Switzerland). Thus, the abolition of visas does not automatically grant the right to work in the EU.

Recall, the Commission in December 2015, confirmed that Ukraine has successfully fulfilled all benchmarks under the action Plan on visa liberalization.

According to the Minister of foreign Affairs Pavlo Klimkin, Ukraine may get visa-free regime with the EU in the summer / fall of 2016.
