Israel and Ukraine discuss cancellation of tourist visa requirements

Israeli and Ukrainian representatives met on Sunday to discuss the cancellation of tourist visa requirements between the two countries, the Tourism Ministry announced. "With every 100,000 tourists creating 4,000 new jobs - mainly in the periphery - canceling visa requirements for tourists is of great importance in increasing jobs and workers in the economy," the ministry's director-general Shaul Tzemach said. The ministry's efforts follow an agreement between Israel and Russia to cancel visa requirements, signed last month, which is scheduled for implementation within the next few months.
