Ukrainians can now travel the EU without visas

Most Ukraine travelers can now move freely throughout the EU.

The European Parliament eased restriction in April. Ukrainians with biometric passports can stay for 90 days without visas.

The passports are also good for Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway, and Switzerland.

The EU wants to keep Ukraine allied with the West.

This latest move seems widely popular.

“I have always dreamed to be a citizen of the world,” said Kyiv resident Volodymyr Martynenko.

“I personally always needed a passport which would allow me to enter every country. And it has always been strange and sad for me that borders were invented for some reason, to check people. That’s why I believe it’s great and it’s an opening up of new opportunities,” he said.

Russia invaded Ukraine in 2014, seizing Crimea. The West has long supported Ukraine independence and sovereignty.
