edited February 2010 in - Eastern Europe
Hi everyone, I have a small headache here, I am Ukrainian national but living in Ireland for last 7 years, I would like to ask for some information, I would like to travel from Ireland to Ukraine by car, and not sure which documents do I need I know that I need a visa(Schengen Visa) definately but in which country should I apply for it? Ireland and Ukraine are not Schengen member I dont know what should I really do and what do I need? May be there is some one who has travelled before to Ukraine from Ireland or Great Britain, please help me....I appreciate any help from everybody. Thanks in advance.

Vitaliy Karayim.

    I HAVE TRAVELLED TO UKRAINE BY MOTORBIKE A FEW TIMES. MAKE SURE THAT YOU HAVE A PROPER GREEN CARD TO COVER YOU FOR UKRAINE.sorry didn't mean to use capitals.. customs are friendly enough but very slow.

    you will need all your original documents. plus some 5 euro notes can be handy when talking to people... but not at the border.

    Hi, if you hold a European Union or US or Canada passport, you do not need a visa to enter and stay in Ukraine for 90 days.

    If you are not a national of those countries, you should apply for a Ukrainian visa.
    The presence of a Schengen visa in your passport does not matter at all for Ukrainian border ans customs guard.

    If you need to have a list of documents for getting a Ukraine visa, visit our web site at and find the contacts of Ukrainian embassy in your country.
