Re: More liberal visa regime with Ukraine?, By László Juhász, Oct 27-Nov 2, Vol 9, No 41
The questions one has to face [as a Slovak, when entering the UK prior to the lifting of the visa regime] are humiliating. No visa for Slovaks will be great, but it still does not solve the whole problem.
The passport control sharks at Gatwick or Heathrow have asked the same question, "Are you going to get married in the UK?", every time I have crossed the border... they have been asking this since before 1998.
Once Slovakia is an EU member state, we can no longer be considered (at least officially) third category human beings - still bad luck for the Ukrainians or Croats. Until we are in the EU, there is nothing to do about it - whether the visa is imposed or not.
