Ukrainian women can enter Europe without visas from 11 June 2017. 11 June 2017 marks the day that Ukrainians have been waiting for 9 years, since 2008. From today, Ukrainian women can enter Europe without visas. President Poroshenko announced in advance he would be personally counting down seconds to the moment when locals may cross the border to the European Union freely, at the boundary with Slovakia in Uzhgorod.

The regime comes into action from 00:01, according to time zones where states are situated.

European countries that open borders to Ukrainians today

  • Greece, Cyprus, Bulgaria, Romania, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, and Finland match Kiev’s time.
  • At 01:01 further 24 states enact the regime: Austria, Andorra, Italy, Vatican, Malta, Germany, Norway, Poland, San-Marino, Monaco, Slovakia, Slovenia, Hungary, France, Czech Republic, Croatia, Lichtenstein, Switzerland, Luxembourg, Belgium, Spain, Netherlands, Sweden, Denmark.
  • Portugal opens at 2:01.
  • Iceland to join at 3:01 Kiev’s time.
  • Greenland, a Danish territory, is the last border that opens to Ukrainians today.

Ukrainian visa-free regime with Europe begins

To celebrate the long-awaited news, the largest local international airline is holding a sale on 11 June, where tickets are priced from only USD $29. A return trip is only $58 for some destinations. Tickets are available for dates from 12 to 30 June 2017.

Georgia, another country of the former Soviet Union, was granted the same visa-free privilege on 28 March 2017. Moldova citizens enjoy it since April 2014.

But for Ukraine, it was a big challenge to gain the ability for citizens to visit European countries without visas. In fact, 33% of Ukrainians didn’t believe it would be ever possible, during a poll in November 2016. It was the Holy Grail of Euro integration, the reason for Maidan revolution of 2013, and the promise of top officials, which they carried like a banner, leading their people forward. The largest country of Europe in terms of its territory, is now granted a simpler access to the continent and all it has to offer.

For international dating, it means Ukrainian ladies can visit European states at any time. They should have return tickets, book a hotel or have an invitation from family or friends where to stay, along with the required financial means to support themselves and a medical insurance, covering foreign trips. Visitors have no permits to study or work. Business trips are allowed, as well as crossing the border with tourist purposes.

This will certainly make contacts between Europeans and local women simpler. Knowing that gorgeous ladies you meet on can board a plane and drop in to see you for a weekend is definitely something that helps to perceive your relationship as more real.

Visa-free entry for Ukraine citizens to Europe begins.

Locals team up for trips

Visiting Europe by car was possible before but now it’s even simpler. At the moment, plenty of ads in Ukrainian online media offer assistance in taking locals to Europe by car. In this case, people don’t need return tickets, only sufficient funds for the amount of days they plan to spend in Europe.

Citizens of Georgia and Moldova have little trouble entering the European Union. The percentages of people refused entry are negligible. The same situation is likely to settle for Ukraine, once the novelty wears off.

The documents and conditions of visa-free entry are the same as for tourist visas, which used to be needed to sightsee in Germany or France. Visa-free travel is permitted for periods not exceeding 90 days.

Visiting women in Ukraine

As you are probably aware, Europeans and Americans can enter Ukraine freely. Most men who are dating Ukrainian women choose to book a hotel but some couples have a relationship close enough that the lady offers her online boyfriend to stay with her, which definitely makes travel more affordable.

In short, international relationships with Ukrainian women are not any more complicated than with local girls, when you choose a trusted dating site like

  • All women on EM can speak English, since all ladies in the countries of the former Soviet Union study a foreign language at school for at least 6 years. All girls know how to use an online translator or app, to make communication simple.
  • There are no translation fees or pay-per-message charges. Talk as much as you want through EM app or website.
  • You can share contact details, social networking accounts, phone numbers, email addresses, etc. We encourage direct communication!
  • Women’s profiles are verified. Every profile on EM is manually approved by administration and checked prior to the publication. Responsible and experienced EM employees conduct personal interviews with female applicants by Skype and phone.

Are you still using PPL pseudo-dating sites where you are charged for every message? Don’t be duped into paying for fake correspondence with impostors.

Genuine Ukrainian women who seek love and relationships don’t enjoy long correspondence. They want to meet a real man and fall in love as soon as possible!

I’m really happy for my sisters from Ukraine. But still I envy them too and would prefer visa-free regime for Russia 🙁 It’s like now I even want to change my citizenship.


I know Russian people themselves are little to blame for that, but listen to this: …. There were times (in 1990s and early 2000s) when lot of citizens as well as states in the West, hoped that Russia will one day, – when will be ready to do so -, join the EU and join the NATO. But then (in Putin’s era) instead Russia pursued agression towards territory of Moldova, Georgia and Ukraine. So since then the western countries known that Russia is not reliable and trustworthy friend anymore, but we find out that it behaves like enemy instead. I… Read more »


I think it’s great news for Ukraine and it’s citizens, women as well as men. Good thing about ticket prices, although airline companies should hold these low prices all the time, seeing that return tickets in USA, for example, between towns 500 miles or less apart cost 20-70 dollars.


I am not sure that visa-free regime with Europe will bring favor to Ukraine since this regime gives Ukrainians the right only to travel around Europe, but not to work there. In other words, Europe invites Ukrainian people to spend their money, but not to earn. And as the rest in the EU countries is not cheap, no more than 10% of Ukrainians can afford it to you. The introduction of this regime is more profitable to the elites rather than to ordinary citizens.


That is only the beginning of future opportunities. Back then in 1989 when western countries opened its borders to poor tourists from poor post-communist countries in CESEE region, nobody expected those countries to join the EU anytime soon, and it happened in just 15 years after. The Ukraine can achieve it too. And also, originally, there were similar financial requirements for tourists visiting a foreign country. Be considerate please. You must know the cost before you arrive. You will likely spend much less than what they tell you, so you can return home with lot of money left in a… Read more »


Those who are willing to visit European countries need to take care of not just financial support and medical insurance, but the papers as well. Biometric pass is newly presented thing and only some have got it. Those who don’t will need visa. Definitely, it is far easier for women and men ready to meet their friends or beloved ones than it was before. It is great when you can just pack things up and be on the way.
