Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has said another nine countries re-opened their borders for Ukrainian tourists.
"As of today, 104 countries are open for Ukrainian citizens. Let me remind you there were 95 such countries at a briefing on February 19, i.e. we added nine countries to this list over a month," he said during an online briefing on Friday, an UNIAN correspondent reported.
Kuleba reiterated Ukrainians might visit these 104 countries subject to certain rules.
"Iceland, Montenegro, Haiti, Guyana, Bangladesh, and Gabon are among the new countries that have re-opened their borders. Entry conditions may certainly include compliance with anti-epidemic requirements. Therefore, I ask you to properly check all entry rules.

Despite the increase in the number of countries that re-open borders for Ukrainians, the coronavirus epidemic is not abating, and the situation is very difficult both in Ukraine and worldwide, the minister stressed.
"Therefore, refrain from traveling without urgent need, and if you are already traveling, we urge you to comply with the strictest safety measures," Kuleba added.
