London to tackle visa problems faced by Ukrainians – envoy

The diplomat says the situation is relevant to any foreign nationals seeking to obtain a British visa.

The ambassador of Ukraine to the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Natalia Galibarenko, has said there is no actual dialogue yet on simplifying UK visa regulations for Ukrainians.

"The British side has already admitted there is a number of problems," Galibarenko said, as quoted by UNIAN.

She added that Britain "is ready to work on improving its visa services. In fact, there is no dialogue yet on simplifying visa issuance, but this situation is relevant to all countries whose citizens seek to obtain a British visa".

According to the diplomat, in connection with Brexit, the UK plans to review the procedure for issuing visas.

"Due to the fact that the UK supported granting Ukraine a visa-free travel across the EU, I hope for a positive result. This is not an option where we can limit ourselves to having the service improved. We will work on ensuring that the process of obtaining visas is simplified," the ambassador said.
