Passenger traffic to China from Ukraine by the end of last year has grown significantly.
Since July 1, the amount of the consular fee for citizens of Ukraine is 1800 UAH. regardless of the number of entries into the country the visa is issued. Until that time, apply the rates approved in 2014, according to which Chinese visa with single entry is 1300 UAH., double – UAH 2000. and with multiple entry for 6 and 12 months, respectively 2400 and 3000 UAH. This information is posted on the website of consular service of the Embassy of China in Ukraine.
According to representatives of travel agencies which organize trips to China, changes are more beneficial to those who are on a business trip, since this category of travelers often prefer to issue multivisa. But in General, defining influence on the traffic flow rate change will have, because the main limiting factor remains the high cost of tours.
Judging by the sites of travel agencies, prices for tours to China start from 16 thousand UAH. per person excluding airfare and cost of visa. The same flights will cost a much more significant amount. Not too easy and the visa process. For example, the owners issued after 2015, the passports have to be present personally at submission of documents. In addition, the deadline for their consideration at times stretched for a few weeks.
And yet passenger traffic in China by the end of last year has grown significantly. If in 2015 China visited 8693 citizen of Ukraine, in 2016 their number has already reached 20 480. Data beyond 2017 are not yet available. Most likely, it is not due to the increase of tourist flow from Ukraine, and strengthening business and cultural ties between the two countries.
