Mauritius has allowed Ukrainian citizens to enter the country for tourist purposes, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine has reported.
“Even in the difficult conditions of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is systematically working to constantly expand the freedom of travel for Ukrainian citizens. We are opening new directions and routes, simplifying the entry regime, concluding visa-free agreements, agreeing on the recognition of vaccination certificates and the inclusion of Ukraine into national ‘green lists.’ Everything is being done so that Ukrainians can travel around the world freely and safely,” the Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said on Facebook, citing Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba.
According to an interactive map of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, the entry of Ukrainian citizens to Mauritius is allowed provided that they stay in self-isolation for two weeks from the moment of arrival and prepayment for the hotel where self-isolation will take place, as well as a negative test for coronavirus, made no later than 72 hours before arrival in country.
While in self-isolation, it is mandatory to re-take the coronavirus test on the 7th and 14th day of being in quarantine.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine will make every effort to find alternative markets for the sale of their goods to Ukrainian companies affected by the sanctions of Belarus, Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba said.
“We certainly calculated that Belarus would want to do something in return, and we were ready for this scenario … Any Ukrainian company that suffers from Belarusian sanctions should immediately contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, and we, together with the trade representative of Ukraine will make every effort to find an alternative market for selling goods of this company,” Kuleba said on the air of Savik Shuster’s Freedom of Speech (Svoboda Slova) program on Ukraine TV channel.
Earlier on Friday, Deputy Minister of Economy, Trade Representative of Ukraine Taras Kachka said that Belarus was introducing a 6-month individual licensing regime for a number of Ukrainian goods imported to that country.
