Kyiv: Georgia and Ukraine have agreed to provide their citizens the opportunity to travel between the two countries without a passport, only using ID-cards that contain a contactless electronic carrier. The agreement will be effective from March 1, 2019.
This was reported by the press service of the Foreign Ministry of Ukraine.
“On March 1, 2019, the updated Agreement between the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine and the Government of Georgia on mutual cancellation of visa requirements comes into effect - in addition to the existing visa-free, a mutual trip of citizens of Ukraine and Georgia is introduced on the basis of internal passports in the form of a card (ID) containing a contactless electronic carrier," said in a statement.
We recall that the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on September 19 approved an agreement on the mutual abolition of visa requirements.
The visa-free regime between the countries was introduced 20 years ago, from March 31, 1999. According to which, Ukrainians may not apply for long-term visas to stay in Georgia for more than 90 days.
