How to get a Ukrainian visa ends or family from a non-CIS country soon? Assuming you really want them to visit, plan ahead and remember that they will need a visa, and according to current rules, they need to get it before they arrive. There are four types of visas: business, tourist, private and transit. Applying, if done in a timely fashion, is simple. All that applicants need to do is send the nearest Ukrainian Consulate a valid passport, passport-sized photo and an application form filled out in block letters. In order to maximize the hassle, these forms have to either be picked up at the consulate or be requested via mail, with a self-addressed stamped envelope; no downloading from the Internet or other means of procurement. In addition, theyХll need an invitation. For most people here, business visas are the easiest to get. Most companies donХt hesitate to provide employees with an official invitation, on company letterhead, to anyone who wants to visit. Religious and humanitarian aid organizations can also provide letters of invitation, upon confirmation by the appropriate government committee. Legible faxed letters are acceptable. Tourist visas also are easy to obtain. Travel agencies take care of all the messy details, and submit itineraries for the applicant. These types of visas are particularly convenient, because the hotel at which the applicant stays automatically registers the guest with the Interior MinistryХs Visa and Registration Department (VVIR). For those who want to visit, but do not want to spring for several nights at a hotel, there is one way around the system. Register at a hotel for only one night. ItХs enough to get the visa, and afterward you are on your own. Private visas are, generally, the biggest hassle. Applicants need a permanent resident of Ukraine to send an original invitation, obtained from VVIR. Burial site visits also can get you a (two-week) visa, with an original Ukrainian Red Cross confirmation that youХve got a dead relative in Ukraine. In case you want a touch of plastic surgery, or any other medical treatment, hospitals can also provide letters of invitation. Transit visas simply require a confirmed ticket and, if necessary, a visa from a country bordering Ukraine. They only last for three days. Single-entry business and tourist visas, which last up to six months, have an application fee of $45 plus $30 if processed in nine business days, $60 for three-day service and $100 for same-day service. Double entry visas are about twice that. Multiple entry business visas, which last for three years, take nine days to process and cost $165. If you cough up the dough and fill everything out right, you should get the visa without any problems. Just donХt forget to make sure your guests register with VVIR when they arrive.

We would like to share information on new Ukrainian visa rules in effect beginning September 10, 2011. These new rules affect you only if you plan to stay in Ukraine for more than 90 days. Americans do not need visas for trips of less than 90 cumulative days in a 180 day period.

On June 1, 2011, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine issued Resolution #567 “On Establishment of the Rules of Visa Issuance for Entry into Ukraine and Transit Through Its Territory” that came into effect on September 10, 2011. The resolution introduces major changes in the Ukrainian visa rules and broadens the list of foreigners entitled to obtain temporary residence permits. Overall, the new legislation aims to standardize visa and temporary residence rules and to bring them in line with European Union practices.

American Citizens travelling to Ukraine still do not need visas for stays of less than 90 cumulative days within a 180 day period. This means you can come for 90 days in one trip and then remain outside the country for 90 days, or that you can make multiple shorter trips to Ukraine totaling no more than 90 days in a 180 day period starting with the date of your first entry. If you plan to spend more time in Ukraine – either during one trip or multiple trips – then you need a visa.

Visas are issued by Ukrainian Embassies and Consulates abroad. There is no way to obtain a visa in Ukraine or at the border. The new long term visas are single-entry and are valid for 45 days (the validity dates determine when you can enter the country, not how long you can stay). This new type of visa replaces all previously existing visa types that allowed stays in Ukraine for more than 90 days. Americans can apply at any Ukrainian Embassy or Consulate, but you should contact the Embassy or Consulate where you intend to apply in advance because exact procedures and processing times vary.

The new long-term stay visas allow you to enter Ukraine during their 45 day validity period. You then need to apply for a temporary residence permit at your local immigration office (officially called VGIRFO but usually referred to by its old acronym, OVIR). The temporary residence permit gives you full legal status in Ukraine and lets you freely travel in and out of Ukraine for as long as it is valid. You will not need to apply for a new visa if you leave Ukraine and you will not need to re-register with OVIR during the permit’s validity period.

Family members of residency permit holders should soon be able to get full legal temporary resident status in Ukraine, too. Before that can happen, however, the Ukrainian parliament has to pass an additional law. Unfortunately it is not clear when they will do this, but Ukrainian officials assure us that they are doing their best to make this happen in the nearest future. Meanwhile, U.S. citizens who are family members of temporary residence permit holders and who are over 18 (those under 18 don’t need residency permits) can only stay legally in Ukraine for 90 days within a 180 day period.

To apply for a residence permit once in Ukraine, you should contact your local OVIR office for exact details and procedures. In general, you will need:

Your passport and valid long term stay visa
A completed application form
A photo
Documentary proof of your address in Ukraine
The application fee of approximately $5.00
A letter from the inviting party verified by the respective state body (you also need this to apply for a long term visa). For example, NGO employees would need a letter from the inviting NGO that has been verified by the Ministry of Justice and religious workers would need a letter from their religious organization verified by the Ministry of Culture.
If someone is applying on your behalf, you need to provide them with a letter of permission along with a power of attorney

The new visa rules are not retroactive and all previously issued visas, extensions of stay, and temporary residence permits will be still valid until their expiration date. However, please note that most “old” non-immigrant visas issued before September 10, 2011 (except for employment, religious, diplomatic, and service visas) have always been and will still be valid only for multiple short-term stays in Ukraine totaling less than 90 days within a 180 day period.

In the past, some travelers have used multiple-entry Ukrainian business or private stay visas to reside in Ukraine, getting extensions of stay (or “registering”) to remain in Ukraine for more than 90 days. Extensions of stay may still be possible under limited conditions. However, there is no guarantee they will be granted or that holders of “old” visas will be re-admitted to Ukraine if they have already been in the country for more than 90 days out of the preceding 180. If Ukrainian immigration authorities decide that you cannot extend your stay in Ukraine or that you cannot re-enter the country after a trip outside the country, the U.S. Embassy cannot help you. You will have no choice but to apply for a new long term stay visa abroad.

Religious (‘P’ – type) visa holders will be able to stay in Ukraine for the duration of their current visas. The Embassy has received conflicting information, however, about what will happen to religious visa holders who leave the country for a short trip abroad. After September 10 they will be allowed to enter Ukraine for 90 days, like any other U.S. citizen, but it is not clear whether they will be able to remain longer than 90 days. If you fall into this category, please contact your local OVIR office for more information before you plan a trip outside of Ukraine. You may have to get a new long term stay visa while you are abroad.

If you have a service (‘C’- type) visa, you may need to take certain steps depending on the sub-category of visa and your organizational affiliation. The Embassy will pass more information to sponsoring organizations as it becomes available.

Americans who travel to Ukraine without visas are no longer able to extend their stays beyond 90 days unless there are clear humanitarian grounds (e.g. medical or family emergencies).

Foreigners who have been married to a Ukrainian for more than two years are eligible for permanent residency in Ukraine. Please contact your local OVIR office or your nearest Ukrainian Embassy or Consulate abroad for more information.

The State Migration Service of Ukraine claims to be working to improve OVIR services. They encourage people who have problems with local immigration authorities to report them at (+38 044) 254-7871. You can also get more information on their website at (in Ukrainian only)
