The Gibraltar Government has waived visa requirements for Ukrainian national who hold multiple entry Schengen visas.

“Qualifying Ukrainian nationals will not require a valid visa to enter Gibraltar,” No.6 Convent Place said.

The move comes as thousands of people, among them a Gibraltarian man and his Ukrainian family, flee fighting in Ukraine.
