Canada may cancel visa regime for Ukrainians already this August

Canada may cancel short-term visas for Ukrainians

The initiative concerns short-term visits to the country

Ukrainians may get a chance to visit Canada without visas.

The initiative to abolish the short-term visas for Ukrainian citizens was announced by Saskatchewan representatives at the congress of the ruling Liberal party.

The statement says that the Liberal Government of Canada should eliminate the need for business and tourist visas for Ukrainian citizens with biometric passports for stays of no longer than 90 days.
The legislation is suggested to be enacted before August 24th, 2016 to mark the 25th anniversary of Ukrainian independence and 125 years of Ukrainian immigration to Canada.

As earlier reported, Canada's Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is planning to visit Ukraine this summer, most likely in July. Details are currently unknown, but Ukraine and Canada plan to sign a free trade agreement during Trudeau's visit.
