"Transport visa-free regime" between Ukraine and EU extended until end of June 2024
The agreement that abolishes the need for Ukrainian carriers to obtain permits for bilateral and transit transportation to the EU countries has been extended
Ukraine’s Ministry of Infrastructure reported the information.
"During the first year, the agreement proved its practical effectiveness. During the period of its validity, the volume of bilateral and transit road freight traffic has increased by more than 50%. And this is far from the limit of our growth," said Oleksandr Kubrakov, Vice Prime Minister for Reconstruction of Ukraine, Minister of Community Development, Territories and Infrastructure of Ukraine.
In his opinion, the agreement on "transport visa-free travel" helps to support the Ukrainian economy, find logistics solutions for exporters, and brings Ukraine closer to its main foreign policy goal of EU membership.
On June 29, 2022, Ukraine and the EU signed the Agreement on Road Freight Transport, also known as the "transport visa-free regime". And on September 16, President Volodymyr Zelenskyy approved the agreement with the EU on transport visa-free travel.
