Ukraine and the European Commission extended the “transport visa-free” for one year with the possibility of its “automatic extension” until the end of 2025.

About the agreement between our state and the European Commission regarding visa-free transport, the Prime Minister of Ukraine, Denys Shmyhal, announced.

In this way, freight road transport both from Ukraine to the EU and in the opposite direction – from the European Union to Ukraine – and further will not require special permits. Also, the updated agreement provides for a number of mutual obligations regarding the availability of licenses for transportation and marking of trucks.

Today we have a result – the opportunity for our business to plan its work, ensuring stability and predictability in the market of two-way and transit transportation, the same conditions of transportation for both Ukrainians and foreigners. It is important that the Agreement is needed not only for Ukraine, it also has a positive impact on the EU market. The latter is confirmed by the numbers – for example, if we compare last year with 2021, imports from the EU to Ukraine increased by more than 45%. It was possible to increase the export of domestic goods by 45% by road, – stressed Deputy Minister of Community Development, Territories and Infrastructure Serhii Derkach.

One ​​of the innovations is the availability of supporting documents for trucks leaving Ukraine empty of goods for EU countries. Also, it is about creating a special working group to analyze the impact of “visa-free” to the market It will include representatives of Ukraine and the EU.
