Taking advantage of the Schengen visa-free program, Ukraine citizens can come and go to Belgium, and other Schengen states however many times they please. And who wouldn’t with the diversity of Art Deco taverns, Flemish art, and Gothic cathedrals throughout the country.
You can always add a snack break to these attractive locations, such as a glass of their locally brewed beer with a bowl of fresh frites or a fluffy Belgian waffle. The country has many well-organized cities, each with a unique personality, some are the main spot of cultural festivals, and others are home to the most beautiful diamonds.
And although these visits have been easily accessed by citizens of Ukraine, the Schengen Area countries now want to increase their inbound security. This action will affect the travelers by requesting from them an ETIAS,, an online authorization that must be approved before traveling.
It’s not a visa, but it does serve as a pre-screening of the foreigner to ensure they’re not a threat to the Schengen countries or their citizens. Getting an ETIAS has never been so simple because it is an online application process and can be filled in just a few days before the trip.
