Today, Ukraine is now closer to EU’s free roaming zone. The Commission approved a proposal to include roaming in the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. Visitors from Ukraine will be able to use their phones for free when they travel within the EU. Those from the EU will also have the same rights while visiting Ukraine.
The revised Priority Action Plan includes one of its key actions: bringing Ukraine into the EU’s free roaming zone. This plan provides a roadmap for full implementation of the EU Ukraine Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Area. It also enables Ukraine to further integrate into the EU Single Market. This is the first time that Ukraine has been granted EU-wide internal market treatment.
Today’s step (14 February) follows the announcement made by Commission President Ursula der Leyen during her 2022 State of the Union address to bring Ukraine into the free roaming zone. This follows the Commission’s engagements with EU and Ukrainian operators in putting into place voluntary measures to allow affordable calls or free calls between Ukraine and the EU.
