What does the change mean? Nationals of 46 countries, including Australia, Indonesia, Mexico, Saudi Arabia and Singapore may now apply for e-visas at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs’ website here.
Background: Ukrainian officials announced the creation of an e-visa program in 2017, but implementation was delayed. E-visa procedures have now been put in place and officials have begun accepting applications. Under current policies, nationals of the following countries are eligible for e-visas:
Ukraine waives visa requirements altogether for nationals of roughly 60 countries, including Brazil, Canada, Russia, Switzerland, Turkey, the United States, the United Arab Emirates and European Union member states. Those eligible for visa-free travel are eligible to stay in Ukraine for business or tourism for up to 90 days in a 180-day period.
BAL Analysis: The e-visa program eases travel procedures to Ukraine for nationals of 46 countries. Travelers should note, however, that while the visas will be available for tourism or business, employment activities are prohibited on e-visas.
