VICE-PREMIER Pal Csáky announced April 16 that Slovakia will probably approve the new, so-called asymmetry visa regime for Ukraine by the end of April, the TASR news agency reported.
According to Csáky, Slovak consulates in Ukraine will grant visas free of charge to Ukrainians, and Kiev, in turn, will lift the visa regime for Slovaks.
Ukraine approved a similar visa policy towards Poland and Hungary in 2003 and had offered it to Slovakia too. The cancellation of charges will improve the quality of Slovak-Ukraine relationships, Ukrainian officials said.
