In some cases, a foreigner applying for a visa may be invited to the consulate to clarify the purpose of the trip.

IMPORTANTLY! All documents issued by a foreign state must be properly legalized, translated into Ukrainian and certified.

Proof of Financial Capacity

Financial capacity is confirmed by the procedure approved on December 4, 2013, by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers № 884.

  • A foreigner must have in his account or cash an amount that corresponds to twenty times the subsistence level or exceeds it per month of residence.
  • The calculation may consider the confirmed obligations of the host party to retain the newcomer fully.

The procedure for confirming the availability of the necessary funds or guarantees is determined by the Law of Ukraine “On Foreigners” (Part 3 of Article 21). According to this procedure, financial capacity can be confirmed by:

  • cash – in convertible foreign currency or in hryvnias;
  • payment card with a statement from a personal bank account confirming the amount sufficient for a visa and further residence;
  • documentary evidence of the applicant’s ability to receive the required amount in one or more Ukrainian banks;
  • voucher – agreement on tourist services;
  • letters of guarantee from the host party, which undertakes to pay for the personal expenses and maintenance of the foreigner, as well as the funds associated with his departure;
  • travel tickets, documents on booking and payment for housing and meals.

To establish the compliance of financial security with the necessary standards, the following are used:

  • visual inspection – if it is about cash in hryvnias or other convertible currency and payment card;
  • careful study of other documents on the funds available to a foreigner.

Consular Fee and Its Features

The consular or visa fee is charged for processing entry documents provided by diplomatic missions and consular posts. It is 65 US dollars if it is the usual terms of registration. If a foreigner wants to get a D visa urgently, the amount will be twice as high.

Children and adolescents, pupils and students, journalists, the disabled and several other categories of citizens are exempt from paying the visa fee.

IMPORTANTLY! The amount of the consular fee in case of visa denial is not refundable.

Terms of Consideration of Documents and Decision-Making

A standard visa is issued within 10 days from the date of submission of the full package of documents. However, if the information provided or the papers submitted, according to the migration services, require additional verification, the procedure will take up to 30 days.

IMPORTANTLY! The documents can be considered urgently – the decision to issue a visa can be made in less than 5 days, but such a service is more expensive.

Validity of the D Visa and Further Registration of Stay in the Country

A long-term visa (D) is initially issued as a multiple-entry visa for 90 days. After the expiration of the term, a foreigner can apply for a temporary or permanent residence permit.

The visa can also be extended if, during the validity of the visa, the foreigner fails to complete the residence permit for a good reason, and he can provide supporting documents. You can extend the validity of the visa for a month. In addition, the application for extension must be submitted to the LCA no later than three and no later than ten working days before the expiration date of the visa.

Refusal and Its Grounds

Visas will be denied if:

  • the stay of a foreigner in our country poses a threat to national security, public order, health or other interests of Ukrainians;
  • a foreigner who has applied for a visa has previously been banned from entering the country or temporarily restricted from leaving;
  • the passport of the person who submitted the documents does not correspond to the sample, is damaged or has signs of forgery;
  • the foreigner provided false information about himself or the purpose of his visit.

But the most common reason for failure is an incomplete package of documents:

  • without health insurance;
  • without evidence confirming the purpose of the visit;
  • without evidence of financial security.

Sometimes the visa is suspended at the applicant’s request, whose circumstances and plans have changed.

In each case, the applicant is informed about the refusal to issue a visa, and the appropriate mark is made on the passport documents. A foreigner can appeal the decision by filing an appeal with the Ukrainian consulate.
