Ukraine Travel Is Visa-Free – level 3

19-06-2017 07:00

Ukraine celebrated its joining of the European Union’s visa-free travel program. Now Ukrainians can visit all countries within the European Union for up to 90 days, although this does not include the UK and Ireland and this does not give Ukrainians the right to work in those countries.

To celebrate, the presidents of Ukraine and Slovakia shared a symbolic moment by opening a passport ‘door’. The Ukrainian president said that with all of the reforms that Ukraine has made, the country needs to be in the European Union, as it is a European country.

Officials expect passenger traffic to rise 30% because of the new program.

Difficult words: symbolic (when you show an idea without using words).
