As previously reported by “MK” on 6 April the European Parliament considered that Ukraine has fulfilled all extended in front of her 144 the requirements and now its citizens will be able to travel around the Old Continent for domestic biometric passports. Such documents contain the fingerprints of their owners.
May 11, visa liberalization will review (and likely approve) the Council of the EU. The signing of the agreement is scheduled for may 17.
In early June, a visa-free regime with the EU will finally take effect. This means that visits to the EU countries Ukrainians can make as many – but not more than 90 days every six months. However, the “bezviz” does not provide any of them the right to employment in Europe and permanent residence. To do this, as before, will require a special visa.
Action “bezveze” will apply to European Union countries except the UK and Ireland.
Switzerland, Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein are not included in the EU, but the Schengen area; therefore, there also you can go without a visa.
In addition to the aforementioned biometric passports the border guards can require other documents. For example, tourists are required to provide proof of hotel booking and following with the aim to visit relatives – letter of invitation from most of these relatives. If the Ukrainians go to the EU with the aim of doing business, it should show the boundary of invitation from business partners or an invitation to a business conference.
If a person travels with an educational purpose – must show confirmation of his participation in the seminar even better – an invitation from the European University.
In some countries you may need a ticket for the way back (as proof that a Ukrainian does not intend to stay in the EU for a longer period than it is necessary), and proof of financial means at the rate of 40 euros per day of stay. Alternatively: you can show a Bank account statement. Mandatory medical insurance.
Limitations, as you can see, the car and small truck.
However, members of Parliament, as the team pinned to their jackets mini flags of the EU. Say, immensely happy for the happiness of the beloved of the electorate.
They, the deputies, and up to 6 April putishestvovali good on diplomatic passports.
Talks about “bitwise”, as recalled by Ukrainian politician Volodymyr Oliynyk, was conducted in 2008. To attribute today’s success to the team of Petro Poroshenko, therefore, unfair. “Before the coup of 2014, the decision of the European Parliament would have pleased many, – says Vladimir. And today “bezviz” need to fill with money: decent wages, pensions, development of small and medium business, jobs”.
Where, how much and how to go, the Ukrainians will decide for themselves. But only on the condition if their income really starts to grow.
Important detail, about which why-that are silent, many commentators: from January 2017 the number of countries in the European Union has significantly simplified the procedure for obtaining official permission to work. Ukrainians still will not touch it. But, for example, citizens of the Balkan States, “jumped bezviz” a few years earlier, riding in their biometric passports in their chosen country and get right to work on the spot. That is, without the need to return to their homeland and there through the Embassy to get a work visa.
After a year or two (dates depend on the number of Ukrainians wishing to work in the EU and the positive experience of employers) any citizen of Ukraine, even the poor, can “on the chaise” to get to the desired state – and also to settle there for many years according to official long-term work visa.
At first, of course, such people will not be easy: the Ukraine-to this day there is still a “Soviet” way of life.
Arranged under the European way of life, these people hardly want back Home, “live on the scoop”, subject to “legitimately elected” President is corrupt. Regardless of what name he will wear: Poroshenko, Tymoshenko or Yatsenyuk.
