Extension of stay

This opportunity is available to foreign citizens who have to stay in Ukraine for more than 90 days without going abroad. An application for extension must be submitted not earlier than 10 days and not later than 3 days before the expiration of the legitimate stay in Ukraine. No stay is extended without valid reasons therefor.

Extension of stay is possible for citizens of countries subject to visa entry into the territory of Ukraine upon presentation of a visa of the type corresponding to the purpose of stay. Extension is likewise granted to citizens of countries subject to visa-free entry under international treaties (i.e., citizens of the CIS countries).
