Does anyone possibly know the way for the UK citizen to obtain a Ukrainian visa in one of the following places:

1) Switzerland,
2) Slovenia,
3) Croatia.

Perhaps someone could recommend me a trustworthy travel agency which can provide for a visa support.

thanks in advance,
Monkey

if its for a short visit, you wont need one, at least not until 1 sept

It will be great for foreigners if they extend this facility beyond september 1st,which was primarily introduced for the Eurovision song contest last month, but I don't know if it's reciprocal(i.e. allowing Ukrainians to visit Europe visa free)-somewhow I doubt it as there would be a mass exile of people looking for work etc!

First step-contact he Ukrainian embassy for advice-BEFORE you make any other arrangements with travel agencies etc.If you are in somewhere like the U.K. or America, or even Russia now, this will be no problem as they are usually quite friendly, even on the phone if you live too far way to go there in person.

Cheers!

It is much easier to get a private visa than a tourist visa. All you have to do is give an authentic name and address in Ukraine. Try http://www.ih.kiev.ua/ . This topic is frequently discussed on lonelyplanet.com.

all that i have read seems to suggest its only if you get a visa, and then go back for a second trip, that you dont need another one...

bizarre rule.

Just read on lonelyplanet that Ukraine will extend the visa-free period for EU and Swiss citizens indefinitely.

:hooray:

Be sure to contact the Ukrainian embassy you intend to visit beforehand to know their requirements. As with Russia, each Ukrainian embassy considers itself to be a separate body will its own rules on what they want to receive to do a visa. Generally, dealing with Ukrainian embassies is much much easier than with Russian ones as you don't find there the rampant xenophobia inherent in Russia/Russian governmental bodies
