Ukraine Visa

All U.S. citizens need a passport to enter Ukraine. You do not need a Ukraine visa if you are staying for less than 90 days within a 180 day period. If you are staying for longer than 90 days, you must secure a travel visa before you arrive in country. Ukraine does not issue visas on arrival.

For travel to Ukraine, you can obtain a single, double or multiple entry visa for the following reasons:

  • Business Visa
  • Visa for Religious Mission
  • Visa for Humanitarian Mission
  • Visa for Members of Rescue Services
  • Student Visa
  • Visa for Mass Media Staff
  • Private Visa
  • Tourist Visa
  • Transit Visa
  • Immigration Visa
  • Visa for International Transport Service
  • Staff Cultural Visa
  • Scientific Visa
  • Diplomatic visa
  • Requirements

    The requirements for a Ukraine visa vary based on the type of visa for which you are applying. Below is a list of the most common visa requirements.

  • U.S. passport with at least one blank visa page remaining that is valid for at least one month after the expiration date of the requested visa. (Please Note: Some airlines require passengers to have a minimum of six months validity remaining on their passport to board the plane.)
  • Visa application. Be sure the form is filled out completely and accurately. Remember to sign and date it. Application forms that are not completed correctly will not be processed, delaying the issuance of your visa and possibly your travel plans.
  • One passport photo
  • Visa fees (Fees vary based on the type of visa for which you are applying.)
  • This list is not all-inclusive. There may be additional requirements based on the type of Ukraine visa for which you are applying. Consular officers have the right to request additional information from any applicant prior to issuing a visa. For the most up to date visa requirements, visit the website of the Embassy of Ukraine.

    Submitting Your Application

    You may submit your completed application and supporting documentation in person at the Ukrainian Embassy in Washington, D.C. or at one of the Consulates General in New York, Chicago or San Francisco, or by mail. When you submit your application in person, you will get a receipt that you must present when you pick up your visa. If you submit your application by mail, you must use either USPS Express Mail or Priority Mail, and you must include a self-addressed, prepaid envelope, so your Ukraine visa can be returned to you.

    Processing Time

    The Ukrainian Consulate offers two application processing options—regular and rush. Regular processing takes up to 30 business days, and rush processing takes up to 15 business days. This does not include mailing time or the day the application is received. The Ukrainian Consulate does not offer same day processing. It is recommended that you apply for your visa at least two months in advance of your trip to ensure you receive it in time for your scheduled departure.
