On 11. June 2017 new EU visa rules apply cancelling visas for Ukrainians, who can now travel to EU member states without a visa. Although, before the visit to the EU, it is necessary for Ukrainian citizens to be holders of biometric passports. To those, who do not hold new biometric passports, old visa regime still applies on, as before. It is generally expected for Ukrainians to be mostly interested to visit the Slovak Republic. Therefore it is reasonable to expect longer waiting times on Slovak-Ukrainian border crossings, mainly during return from Ukraine to Slovakia.
