Another great breakthrough. Ukraine and the Chinese governments have signed a deal to allow visa free travel between the two countries.
This is another break for Ukrainian citizens, who find themselves having to make an application for a visa to visit most places around the world. Hong Kong now joins the list of other places like Eqypt, Thailand, Turkey, Sri Lanka and a few others that will allow Ukrainian people to visit withour a prior visa. I hope that many people take up this opportunity to visit Hong Kong.
