Due to the upcoming period of processing documents for studying at universities in Ukraine the Embassy of Ukraine to the Republic of India is informing about the following:
1. Registration of applicants - nationals of India and other countries for submitting visa applications and personal interviewing (if necessary) is to be made via the website http://visa.mfa.gov.ua.
The above innovations are aimed at creating more transparent and accessible conditions for issuing visas and simplifying visa procedures in general. We will use our available resources to fairly assist all applicants in allowing travel for study in time.
In this regard applicants are requested:
- to plan your travel and visa submission in advance;
- to avoid multiple registrations of a visa application on the above web-site on different timings, that causes difficulties for other applicants. Such visa applications may not be processed;
- to submit a complete correctly filled visa application without mistakes and to ensure uploading high-quality photos. Applications with mistakes or containing incorrect information may be rejected;
- to prepare for your interview, if required, by being able to clearly and concisely describe your intentions.
