Tourist visa to UKRAINE

If you are traveling to Ukraine as a tourist, then you are in luck. US citizens traveling to Ukraine do not need to have a tourist visa to Ukraine if they plan on staying for ninety days. However, these days should be within a 180 day period. At Travel Visa Pro, we help you out regarding the requirements you should meet when traveling to Ukraine.

First off, you should have a valid passport in well-kept condition, which is to say that is should be undamaged. If you have lost your passport, we can quickly expedite its replacement. Your passport should also have at least ninety days of validity remaining as from the date of your arrival in Ukraine. We, however, advocate for at least six months which will help you out in case of any changes. We can expedite your renewal within a day if this is not the case.

Most states require that you have blank visa pages in your passport and the same goes for Ukraine. In this way, stamping at arrival and departure can take place. As such, you should look into whether you have any unused pages. We recommend that you should have at least two of these and if this is not the case, reach out to one of our agents for help on the same.

You will not require a tourist visa to Ukraine. However, this is not to say that you will not need any visas during your trip. If you get to use connecting flights overseas, you should check with your airline as to whether you will require a transit visa. We can help you in processing visas for use in other countries and if you have any problems in this regard, reach out to one of our agents.

We look forward to serving you!
