Poland halved the issuance of visas to Ukrainians

Almost half of Ukrainian citizens who applied for a visa to enter Poland in 2020 were refused.

“Compared to 2019, the number of visas issued to Ukrainians decreased by 43.1%”, – the press service of the Polish Foreign Ministry said.

It is also noted that during the period of easing restrictions associated with the coronavirus pandemic, priority was given to those Ukrainians who applied for employment in the agricultural sector of Poland.

According to the General Statistical Office of Poland, at the end of 2019 there were more than 1.3 million Ukrainians in the country.
