Antigua and Barbuda has added another country to its visa-free travel list. An agreement signed by Antigua and Barbuda’s Ambassador to the United States of America, Sir Ronald Sanders, and Ukranian Ambassador, Valeriy Chaly, has given citizens of Antigua and Barbuda visa-free travel to Ukraine and removes the previous visa requirements between the two countries.
The terms of the agreement allow holders to enter each other’s countries for both business and travel without the need for a visa for a term of not more than 90 days in a 180 day period. Although the agreement was signed on February 6th, the actual effective date will not be until sometime in March:
While the agreement has been signed today, there will be a lapse of 30 days before it becomes effective, in order to allow immigration officials in both countries to institute the arrangement… Other agencies, such as embassies in other countries, airlines and cruise ships, will also have to be informed to facilitate the ease of travel envisaged by the abolition of visa requirements.
– Sir Ronald Sanders, Antigua and Barduda’s Ambassador to the United States of America
This agreement “enhances the value and standing of the Antigua and Barbuda passport” and increases the number of visa-free countries to 136.
