Chinese visitors to Ukraine up 50 percent in 2017

The number of Chinese visitors to Ukraine increased by 51.4 percent last year, as the two countries are enjoying close business ties and people-to-people exchanges, according to official statistics released here on Monday.

A total of 31,114 Chinese citizens visited Ukraine last year, according to a report released by Ukraine's State Statistics Service.

Most of them came to Ukraine for business, tourism or private purposes, the report said.

Ukraine introduced a visa-on-arrival policy for Chinese citizens at Kiev Boryspil Airport and the airport of the country's southern Black Sea resort of Odessa in June 2016.

Chinese citizens can obtain 15-day entry visa if they have documents confirming the business or tourist purpose of the visit.
