The agreement between Ukraine and Turkey on the cancellation of visas has taken effect on Wednesday, August 1, according to Ukrainian Foreign Minister Kostyantyn Gryshchenko.
"I would like to recall everyone who for some reason decided to spend vacation outside Ukraine – the agreement on the cancellation of visas with Turkey has come into force today. Now there will be no visas and charges for them and you will be able to spend the spared money on leisure and souvenirs from Turkey," the minister wrote on his page in Twitter on Wednesday.
"We will work further to expand the list of countries to which Ukrainians may travel without visas," he said.
