Each EU member state can add Ukraine to national 'green list' – Shmyhal.

The decision of the Council of the European Union to include Ukraine in the "green" list of countries for which it is recommended to lift travel restrictions opens up additional tourism opportunities for Ukrainians.

Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal wrote about his on Facebook, summing up the economic results of the past week, Ukrinform reports.

“The Council of the European Union has included Ukraine in the list of countries for which it is recommended to remove temporary restrictions on entry. This decision opens up additional tourism opportunities for Ukrainians. Now each EU member state can add Ukraine to its own "green list". And a number of countries have already opened their borders to Ukrainians," the head of government said.

At the same time, he noted that the government continues to work on the introduction of Covid certificates so that Ukrainian citizens can travel freely across Europe during a pandemic. "I showed our developments to Vice President of the European Commission Maros Sefcovic. He assured that the document does not differ from the European one, and this indicates a potentially positive decision on the recognition of certificates by the European Union," Shmyhal said.

As Ukrinform reported, on July 15, the Council of the European Union added Ukraine to the list of countries for which coronavirus-related travel restrictions on non-essential travel into the EU should be lifted.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba instructed Ukraine's embassies in EU countries to work on including Ukraine in national "green lists," which will allow Ukrainians to travel to these countries without restrictions.
