An agreement on launching the process of the visa regime suspension between two countries was achieved during the visit of the Ukraine-Japan inter-parliamentary group delegation to Tokyo, the deputy Leonid Yemets (People's Front) reported on Facebook.
“The Japan Cabinet of Ministers started its work on the suspension of the visa regime for Ukrainians. Parliaments promised to help in every possible way. It is too early to talk about the timing, but we are working to ensure that Ukrainian citizens can already go to the Olympic Games (2020) in Tokyo without visas”, he wrote.
Earlier, from June 11, 2017 citizens of Ukraine who have biometric passports got the opportunity to visit 30 countries of Europe without visas: all EU countries, except Great Britain and Ireland, as well as Switzerland, Liechtenstein, Iceland and Norway. Ukrainians can stay there for up to 90 days in every 180 days.
