Russian Citizens Will Need A Visa To Enter Ukraine Henceforth

Russian citizens will from Friday, July 1, require a visa to enter Ukraine, as Kyiv scrapped a decade-long visa-free regime that facilitated travel across borders for citizens of both countries.

Zelensky said that following Russia’s invasion, he supported the introduction of stricter controls for the entry of Russian citizens.

The president said the country has decided to end visa-free travel for Russian citizens due to the “unprecedented threats to the national security, sovereignty and territorial integrity” of Ukraine.

Before Russian citizens did not need visas to enter Ukraine, and they were allowed to stay for less than 90 days in the 180-day period from the date of the first entry.
