Visa on arrival for Malaysians travelling to Ukraine soon

Published on : Friday, March 17, 2017

Visa on arrivalMalaysian cabinet has adopted a new regulation which will soon permit Malaysians travelling to Ukraine to obtain visa on arrival, Ukrainian Ambassador to Malaysia, Olexander Nechytaylo said.


“On that day, the cabinet approved this new regulation to remove bureaucracy for Malaysians visiting the country, which will be implemented on April 1,” he told Bernama in an interview in conjunction with the 25th anniversary of diplomatic relations between Malaysia and Ukraine.


He said this new development could boost tourism and create lasting people-to-people relations, which are some of the areas the Ukrainian embassy here are focusing on to further strengthen ties.


The ambassador said that some 11,000 Ukrainian tourists came to Malaysia in 2015, but the number of Malaysian tourist arrivals to Ukraine was slightly lower than that.


Currently, Ukrainians can visit Malaysia without visa for up to 30 days but Malaysians visiting the eastern Europe country required a visa.


The envoy said that the embassy also planned to organise a ‘travel talk’ event later this year, which will bring together travel agents from both countries, as well as international airlines.


“I would like for Ukraine to be part of the package that has been offered to the Malaysian market, maybe together with a tour to Turkey and Poland,” he said.

Nechytaylo added that Ukraine has a lot to offer, such as several UNESCO World Heritage sites, as well as ‘ extreme tour’ to the Chernobyl power plant, which was shutdown after a catastrophic nuclear accident in 1986.


Besides tourism, Nechytaylo added that Ukraine’s National University of Kyiv Mohyla Academy had shown keen interest to collaborate with Universiti Sain Malaysia (USM) for joint-diploma, joint-degree and postgraduate programmes.
