Ukraine: Curiosity – Serbian Visitors May Enter Without a Visa
Period of visa-free stay is limited to 30 days within 60 days
Effective December 8, 2011, Serbian nationals may enter Ukraine based on a valid passport without a visa for the period of 30 days within 60 days. Ukraine’s visa free regime was amended as a result of a bilateral agreement signed with Serbia, which also facilitates visa-free entry for Ukrainian visitors traveling to Serbia for a short term visit.
In November 2011, Ukraine concluded a similar agreement with Bosnia and Herzegovina. The agreement allows Bosnian nationals to enter Ukraine without a visa, with the same restrictions as for Serbian nationals.
In addition to the above, another Balkan state, Croatia, might soon become visa exempt as well, but only for a limited period of time. The local organization committee of EURO 2012 has requested the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine to implement a visa-free regime for Croatia between May 1 and July 15, 2012, to encourage fans to travel to the football championship held in the country.
Visitors from the above countries should keep in mind that visas are still required for citizens who enter Ukraine with the purpose of employment or if they are going to stay in Ukraine for more than 30 days.
