Poland gives green signal to offer visa-free travel for Ukrainians

On a visit Kiev, the president of Poland, Bronisław Komorowski stated that the country supports the Ukrainian application for visa-free travel to the Schengen zone, which consists of 26 countries. 

Addressing a joint press conference with Komorowski, the president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko stated that the proposal to visa-free travel was one of the biggest priorities for the May summit of the so-called Eastern Partnership, which unites the EU with post-Soviet European nations, including Belarus or Ukraine. 

Poland bailed out control of its visa regime at the time of joining the Schengen area, during which passport and other border controls have been dissolved. All EU member states, excluding the Ireland, Romania, UK, Cyprus, Croatia and Bulgaria belong to the visa union along with Iceland, Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
