Visa Free Access to Ukraine for Citizens of St Kitts and Nevis
September 27, 2016 - News
In a ceremony held on the margins of the United Nations General Assembly in New York last week, St. Kitts and Nevis Minister of Foreign Affairs, the Honorable Mark Brantley and his Ukrainian counterpart, Mr Pavlo Klimkin signed a Mutual Visa Waiver Agreement which will allow citizens of both countries to enter each other’s country visa free for up to 90 days.
This Agreement forms part of the Government’s ongoing efforts and commitment to improve the international power-ranking of the St. Kitts and Nevis passport. “I am committed to doing everything I can to make it easier for all citizens of the Federation to be able to travel and do business across the world”, the Foreign Minister Brantley declared.
After the ceremony, Minister Brantley said he “appreciated the willingness of friendly countries, such as Ukraine, to work with St. Kitts and Nevis as our Government expands its international footprint, increases partnership and opens pathways for our citizens to be more productive at home and empowered to work more seamlessly and actively knowing that we will spare no efforts to facilitate their easier participation on the international scene. I believe that today’s development speaks to that promise.” Minister Brantley also thanked Dr. Kevin M. Isaac, High Commissioner in London for his efforts in negotiating the mutual visa waiver agreement.
Minister Brantley also commended the announcement from the Government of the Maldives which recently confirmed that citizens of St. Kitts and Nevis do not require visas prior to entering that country for up to 30 days.
