Do I need a visa to visit the Ukraine?

Do I need a visa to visit the Ukraine? Actually the not so simple answer is yes and no.

No matter which country you are from, you must have at least 6 months on your passport before expiry when you enter the Ukraine.

If you are a citizen of USA, UK, an EU nation of one of the many former Soviet States you don’t need a visa if you visit the Ukraine for 90 days or less as a tourist. But you can only do this once every 6 months.

If you want to stay for more than 90 days, or you want to visit more regularly than 6 monthly, or you want to study or work, you need a visa. If you are a citizen of any other country, you need a visa for any visit.

And – if you are I the Ukraine and your visa is due to expire and you want to extend it ……… can’t. You can only apply for a visa from a foreign Consulate or Embassy which means you must go home, apply for an extension (which in effect becomes a new Visa) and then go back.

The moral of all of this… know your requirements according to your citizenship. Know how long you want to stay for and apply for the visa.  You need your passport no matter where you are from when you enter the Ukraine.
