Appealing a refusal in visa to Ukraine

Free initial legal consultation

What to do in case if visa application to Ukraine was refused?

The refusal decision must be accompanied with official letter from the embassy and according to Ukrainian laws prescribed only 10 reasons for it.

1. national security or public order protection
2. public health protection, protection of rights and legal interests of Ukrainian citizens and other persons residing in Ukraine
3. existing entry ban to Ukraine
4. passport document is forged, corrupted or not conforming to the established model or belongs to another person
5. false information or counterfeit other documents
6. absence or invalid medical insurance
7. lack of sufficient financial support
8. absence of evidence confirming the purpose of the planned stay in Ukraine
9. the absence of documents that make it possible to establish the intention of a foreigner or stateless person to leave the territory of Ukraine before the expiration of the visa
10. application of the applicant for the termination of consideration of the visa application

After such decision, the embassy officer makes a note in the passport: “Appealed” (“Звертався”), with the date and gives the refusal decision in which one of the above reasons is noted and certifies with his signature. The provision of more detailed information about the reason for the refusal is not prescribed by the current legislation.
