In Reply to: What countries can Ukrainians travel to ? posted by Walter on April 02, 2000 at 19:48:05:
I know for sure that Ukrainian citizens don't need a visa to go to Cuba. The other countries Ukrainians don't need a visa to go to (besides the some of the states of the former Soviet Union):
Bosnia-Herzegovina, Bulgaria, Czech Republic (this may change very soon),Hungary, Macedonia, Mongolia, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia (I am not very sure on this one), and Yugoslavia. It is also very easy for Ukrainians to get a visa to Turkey and many of the Persian Gulf states (such as UAE). Unfortunately, the chances of him getting a visa to some of the Western countries are very slim, his best bets could be Spain, Italy, Portugal and Greece, where many tourists from Ukraine go. Cyprus is a good choice too. Finally, Germany may be a better bet than the other wealthy and (thus arrogant) Western democracies. In case he gets a Shengen (the visa issued by most EU-member states) visa, he will be able to travel most of Europe without difficulty. I would also discourage him from applying to either US or Canada- there is nothing good in having a visa refusal on his record. Hope this helps. If you have additional questions- just e-mail me.
: I invited my Ukrainian friend to visit me but he said that since he's just a poor student, he cannot get a Visitor's Visa to travel to Canada. He said he knows he can travel to Poland, but he doesn't know of any other places. Can an unemployed Ukrainian student travel to the U.S.? or France, or England? How about Cuba or Finland? Please give me a list of places that he should have no problem in visiting.
: Also, why is it so difficult for Ukrainians to travel to other countries for just a simple 2-week vacation, it doesn't make sense!
