Less than a month after establishing diplomatic relations with Ukraine, the Commonwealth of Dominica has signed a Visa Waiver Agreement with the European nation. Under the Agreement, citizens of both nations can travel visa-free to the other country for up to 90 days within any 180-day period.
The Acting High Commissioner of Dominica, Janet Charles, and the Ambassador of Ukraine to the United Kingdom, Her Excellency Natalia Galibarenko, signed the Agreement on 15 May 2019 on behalf of their respective governments. The signing ceremony was hosted by the Dominica High Commission in London, where the two diplomatic ministers had the opportunity to discuss future cooperation in areas of mutual interest, including investment and tourism.
Commenting on the occasion, High Commissioner Charles celebrated the burgeoning relationship between the two countries and hailed it as evidence of the Dominican Government’s commitment to building long-term relations with Ukraine and with Europe as a whole.
Dominica’s strong network of international relations, forged not just with Europe, but also with the Commonwealth, the Americas, and many more nations across the globe, stands testament to its commitment to its citizens – present and future.
People hoping to become citizens of Dominica have the opportunity to do so through the nation’s Citizenship by Investment Programme. Established in 1993, the Programme enables foreigners to obtain citizenship in return for a significant investment in the economy. In addition to gaining access to one of the most beautiful islands in the world, applicants under the Programme can benefit from extensive visa-free travel earned by a globally respected Government.
