“Our timeline that we are moving towards a visa-free regime(at least as I see it), suggests that the final decision on bizwise will be made before the elections in France. But it will come into force probably not before the elections,” – said zerkal.

At the same time, the Ambassador of Ukraine in great Britain Natalia galibarenko believes that the UK is not ready to go on simplification of visa regime for Ukrainians. “Unfortunately, the UK government is not prepared to come forward by their plans to tighten control over labor migration,” she said in an interview LB.ua.
