Visa-Free Regime Between Ukraine and Indonesia

The cabinet of ministers of Ukraine and the government of Indonesia agreed on the abolition of visa requirements for a short-term stay

On June 29, several important events for Ukraine took place. While Volodymyr Zelenskyy communicated with NATO members, Ukrainian foreign minister Dmytro Kuleba met with a colleague from southeast Asia. During the meeting, he and Indonesian foreign minister Retno L.P. Marsudi reached an agreement on the entry of Ukrainians into Indonesia. The consensus was formalized in an agreement between 2 governments.

It is worth noting that since 2016, citizens of Ukraine can enter Indonesia without a visa by a unilateral decision of the host country. But after the entry into force of the new document, both countries will establish a mutual regime of visa-free travel. It will be possible to take advantage of the friendship between Ukraine and Indonesia countries, regardless of the citizen category. A permanent visa-free regime will allow Ukrainians to come to Indonesia for up to 30 days. This applies to every visit to Southeast Asia. Indonesian citizens will be able to stay in Ukraine for up to 30 days every 2 months.

The agreement will enter into force upon completion of all domestic procedures in Ukraine and Indonesia.

Recall that at the moment, no country has introduced a visa regime for Ukrainians who escape from military actions from the Russian Federation. However, Israel introduced a visa for residents of Ukraine.
