“I was surprised to learn that to date, visa to Saudi Arabia is the most expensive among all countries for Ukrainians and, accordingly, a visa to Ukraine – the most expensive for the Saudis. The king, with his Majesty, we agreed that we strongly reduce the rate of fees for a visa…” – said the President of Ukraine, who is on a working visit to Saudi Arabia.
