Visa policy of Ukraine

Do us citizens need a visa for Ukraine? On July 1, 2006, Ukraine introduced a visa-free regime for US citizens. This is determined by a presidential decree of June 30.

“Establish from July 1, 2005 a visa-free regime for entry into Ukraine and transit through the territory of Ukraine for US citizens if they re-visit Ukraine within 6 months from the date of previous entry into Ukraine for a period not exceeding 90 days,” – it is spoken in the presidential decree.

All you have to do is show your US passport at the Ukrainian border. In addition, a visa to Ukraine for a period not exceeding 90 days is not required for citizens of the countries of the European Union, Switzerland, USA, Canada and Japan.

Do I need a visa for Ukraine from USA

For US citizens, entry to Ukraine is generally visa-free.

However, this applies to the US citizens entering for a period of not more than 90 days within 180 days from the date of first entry. In other words, for such citizens there is no need to apply for a visa to Ukraine of type C and B. Particular attention should be paid to the fact that only the presence of a visa of type C gives the right to extend the period of stay of a foreigner in Ukraine.

If you are American and you plan to enter Ukraine for a period of more than 90 days, you need a D type visa. Only a visa of this type permits staying on the territory of Ukraine for a period of more than 90 days, and only a visa of type D allows you to obtain a residence permit in Ukraine.
