The cost of issuing an invitation in Ukraine for a foreigner does not include a standard visa fee of $ 65. There is a double rate for expedited visa processing. For citizens of certain countries, the visa payment may differ depending on the international agreements of Ukraine or the principle of reciprocity in international law (if a foreign state has established a high official payment - Ukraine has the right to establish a similar one).

Additional costs, such as insurance or sending documents, depend on the age of the foreign citizen, country of citizenship, and other nuances.

Important to know

The validity term of visa which is based on invitation

At the moment, There are such types of visas:

  • long-term visa (type D);
  • short-term (type C);
  • transit visa (type B).

Having an invitation for Ukraine from a legal entity or natural person, a foreigner has the right to apply for a short-term type C visa. During its validity, a person can leave and enter the territory of Ukraine several times or just one time (depending on whether it is a single-entry visa or a multi-entry one).

It should also be remembered that the validity of a visa should in no case exceed the validity of a foreigner's passport. The validity of the passport must be more than three months from the planned date of departure.


Do I need to register or confirm an invitation with the State Migration Service of Ukraine (SMS)?

No, you do not. From April 16, 2017, it is no longer necessary to confirm the invitation with the SMS. This procedure was eliminated.

How much money do you need to have for a positive decision by the Foreign Ministry on the entry of a foreigner?

There is a special formula provided for by the "Procedure for confirming sufficient financial support for foreigners and stateless persons to enter Ukraine .." by which our lawyers can calculate the amount of funds that you need to take with you. In addition, sufficient financial support can be confirmed not only with money, but also with other types of financial support (for example, hotel reservation).

Upon reaching the final agreements on cost and term of provision of services for registering a foreigner in Ukraine, a Client signs a legal services agreement with the firm and pays the full cost of services.

The next step consists of provision of the documents required for executing an invitation. You can send documents in different ways – via mail, via Internet, via fax etc.

Upon checking the documents of the foreigner and taking all the necessary actions regarding the issuance of the invitation to Ukraine, we hand over the invitation to the Client in original, within the prescribed time.

Our experts will provide you with legal advice on the matters of obtainment of invitation to enter Ukraine for a foreigner, will prepare all the required documents and hand it over on schedule.

We will support the provision of an official invitation to Ukraine.  For more details on the  terms of cooperation, get in touch with  our specialists.


You don’t have to call on the State Migration Service for getting an invitation for foreigners as it had been previously. According to the Decree of the Cabinets of Ministers of Ukraine № 118 “On approving Rules of forming visas for coming into Ukraine and transit across its territory” a power of issuance invitations didn’t belong to this state body anymore.

From now on, a business invitation is issued on behalf of a legal entity, if the following rules are fulfilled:
  • such person must be registered in Ukraine in the prescribed manner;
  • an invitation is issued on the official letterhead of a legal entity;
  • the document must have the stamp of the legal entity and the signature of the head;
  • the invitation must state the duty of the person, according to which the financial costs associated with the stay of a foreigner in Ukraine and travel outside the state are confirmed.

It should be emphasized that the last paragraph is one of the most necessary elements of the invitation.

To draw up an invitation from an individual, you need to contact a notary. An individual must necessarily have a passport with him, because the details of this document are not only indicated in the invitation, but also a copy of it is attached to the finished document.

Also, one should not forget about the existence of such a clause as an obligation to assume all possible costs associated with a foreigner’s stay in Ukraine and traveling outside the state, when a natural person is inviting foreigners to Ukraine from an individual.

When issuing an invitation from a legal entity and a natural person, the following information must be indicated  in the document itself, namely:
  • A number of this legal entity in the Unified State Register (USR);
  • information about the natural person inviting to Ukraine;
  • Last name, name, patronymic of a foreigner;
  • date and place of birth of a foreigner;
  • Passport series and number of a foreigner;
  • place of registration of a foreigner;
  • purpose of arrival in Ukraine;
  • period of stay in Ukraine;
  • number of planned visits;
  • the place where the foreigner will live during a visit to Ukraine.
The availability of such a large list is explained by the fact that it is on the basis of this document that a foreigner will receive a visa at Ukrainian consular offices. Accordingly, the consulate will conduct a detailed verification of the invitation to make sure that the foreigner really is able to stay in Ukraine legally and fully.
