Appealing a refusal in visa to Ukraine

Experienced and reliable lawyer in Ukraine

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.

However, in case of refusal to issue visa, do not despair – you have a free right to appeal such decision by submitting a request to the head of the embassy. The term of consideration of this letter is set for 10-30 days.

If you believe that the decision to refuse to issue visa is not legitimate, our lawyer can prepare an appeal letter requesting to reconsider visa application and grant you a visa to Ukraine. With our experience and deep analysis your chances to get a visa to Ukraine will highly increase. In addition, depending on the reason of visa refusal decision our lawyer can contact authorized state authorities in Ukraine in order to get necessary and recommended extra support documents which will prove that you have full right to enter Ukraine.

    Добрый вечер, спасибо большое за помощь. Сегодня получили визу. Жена была впечатлена, особенно во время подачи апелляции. Я не был в Египте и она подавала одна. Визовый консул был впечатлен когда начал читать, даже сказал жене это не вы писали 6) но взял заявление. После они сказали подождать 10 дней, никто мне не звонил и вообще мы были не очеь оптимистичны, но сегодня пошли, они посмотрели и сказали давайте паспорт, все в порядке. Решение положительно..

    Hi, how are you doing? I was a student in Ukraine and overstayed. When I left the country in September 2018 to get anew visa, I didn’t get an entry ban stamp, neither did I get to pay a fine. The official asked me what happened, after explaining why I did not have registration or a Posvidka, he let me go. When I applied for a new visa, at first the embassy approved it. Then it got denied by immigrat

    Hi! I am Reynolds Kwao-Belameh, a resident and citizen of Ghana. I applied for a Ukrainian study visa because I have gotten admission to V.N. Karazin University to read medicine. But I was refused a visa with the reason being *unsufficient information about reason for travel*. I find that surprising because I attached my invitation letter and bank statement confirming my ability to pay and take care of me while in Ukraine. NB: •the embassy that handled my documents is the office in Senegal. I have to report to school by 14th of November,2018.

    Hello sir. I am Rahul Raj an Indian studying in Ukraine. I was expelled in my 3rd course and because of that I overstayed in Ukraine after my residence permit was cancelled. I got overstay fine at Kiev airport while returning. I paid the fine and then the authorities told me that now I can apply for visa again and come back to Ukraine. But when I applied for new visa in INDIA, they refused my visa telling me that I am in the list of people who cannot enter Ukraine. Any help regarding this issue? I am in a big problem because of this.
