About 3 million Ukrainians, residents of border regions, enjoy a visa free regime with the European Union.

Director of the MFA Consular Service Department Andriy Olefirov has said about this at a round table at UKRINFORM on Thursday.

“For now, some Ukrainian citizens, and there are many of them, about 3 million, who reside in border regions with Poland, Slovakia and Hungary, already have a visa free regime with the European Union,” he said.

According to Olefirov, those Ukrainians, for whom it is not far to the European Union, cross the border with the EU by a special permit within the frames of the border movement.

“They should not have a visa, they receive the so-called permission, which exists within the frames of local border movement in compliance with the signed international bipartite agreements,” he reminded.

The MFA representative also added that in crossing the border, a stamp is not put in foreign passports of such citizens of Ukraine, thanks to this there is not a problem of constant change of this document.
