Required documents and information

In order to receive the invitation letter, we need only:

  • filled out standard application form;

  • passport;

  • information about the ability to provide sufficient financial coverage of expenses related to foreigner’s or stateless person’s staying in Ukraine.

There are several ways to get an invitation - the main difference is who issues/provides such a document for you. It is worth noting that the migration authorities and consular offices may treat the sources of the invitation with varying degrees of confidence. On the one hand, a visa is more likely to be given to a foreigner with an invitation from a legal entity, and on the other hand, it depends on the legal entity with what level of trust. A sponsor letter for visa must meet the requirements of the law.

Of course there is always an opportunity to issue a private or personal invitation. It is not suitable if you plan to do business or stay in Ukraine longer, but can be an option if you plan a tourist visit. Private invitations won’t work in most cases for foreigners from countries that are considered by Ukraine as “risky”. Only business invitations plus legal support can help you out in such situations.

In order to receive the invitation letter a foreigner has to confirm the sufficiency of his economic security level. We are talking about business invitations, not the tourist cases, although those can also be tricky depending on the country you are coming from.

Unless laws provide otherwise, each month of foreigner’s stay in Ukraine has to be supported by at least 20 living wages the amount of which is calculated as of the date of foreigner’s entry in Ukraine.

If the period of staying in Ukraine is shorter or longer than a month, the abovementioned amount is divided by an average number of days in one month (30 days) and multiplied times the planned number of days plus five. 

Upon successful completion of verification of sufficient economic security level a foreigner or stateless person:
