You're reading: Foreign Ministry: Ukrainians still facing difficulties in obtaining Canadian visas

The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry has said that the Canadian authorities have not simplified the visa regime for Ukrainians since 2005.

“Over this period, Canada has not introduced any steps for Ukraine in
the simplification of the visa regime. It’s still difficult for
Ukrainians to obtain visas,” the director of the ministry’s information
policy department, Oleh Voloshyn, said at a briefing in Kyiv on Tuesday,

He said that the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry was surprised that the
Canadian side had done nothing to simplify the procedure for obtaining
visas by Ukrainians, extend the period of validity of visas, and reduce
the list of the required documents.

As reported, in 2005, the citizens of the EU member states got the
right to visit Ukraine without visas. However, visas for Ukrainians were
not canceled. However, since January 1, 2008 Ukrainian citizens have
enjoyed an agreement on the simplification of the visa regime with EU
member states.
