VISA SUPPORT

What is a long-term visa (D type visa)?

D type visa is issued in cases where a foreigner intends to apply for a temporary residence permit to stay in Ukraine for more than 90 days.

D type visas are issued as multiple entry visas valid for 90 days.

So obtaining a D type visa can be called the first step to obtaining a temporary residence permit. Therefore to obtain a D type visa you need to have a ground for obtaining a residence permit.

The second step: a foreigner arrives in Ukraine on the basis of a D type visa and, by the end of its validity period, submits an application and the necessary documents for obtaining a temporary residence permit.

As soon as you have your TRP granted you don’t need any visas to travel to Ukraine as often as you want and you can legally stay in Ukraine till your TRP is valid.

The basis for the D visa could be employment in Ukraine, invitation for volunteering in Ukraine, studying, moving due to family reunion etc.

For example, here is a list of documents for the employment visa to Ukraine

  1. Passport / travel document which should comply with these requirements:

– be valid for at least 3 months after the intended date of departure from Ukraine;

– have at least 2 pages free from any visas/marks/stamps;

– be issued for no more than 10 years.

  1. Printed and signed application form (all applications should be registered at the website http://visa.mfa.gov.ua);
  2. 1 applicant’s photo (35×45 mm);
  3. Proof that the applicant is a holder of (or is entitled to benefit from) a valid medical/travel insurance policy to cover Ukraine and the period of stay (the policy should provide a minimum of €30 000 or equivalent coverage) + a medical insurance policy covering COVID and observation.
  4. Proof of sufficient funds to cover the costs of stay (e.g. bank statement for 2 recent months, cash in Ukrainian hryvnia / other convertible currency, bank cards along with current/savings account balance statements provided the bank cards can be cashed in Ukraine, hotel/accommodation booking, letter from the applicant’s employer/sponsor confirming their coverage of applicant’s expenses in Ukraine, a return/transit ticket etc). The amount is around USD 1500 per 30 days of stay. D visa is a multiple visa for 90 days, so the amount should be around USD 4500.
  5. Paid visa fee receipt (unless stipulated otherwise by Ukraine’s legislation or Ukraine’s international treaty).
  6. A certified copy of the work permit issued by Ukraine’s State Centre for Employment.

Please note that in cases where applicants reside in a country that is different from the country of their nationality/citizenship Ukraine’s Embassies/Consulates abroad may only be able to accept visa applications from applicants holding valid temporary/permanent residence documents (long-term visas/residence permits or their equivalents etc.).
