What to do in case if visa application to Ukraine was refused?
The refusal decision must be accompanied with an official written notification or email from the Embassy (or Consulate) of Ukraine and, according to the Ukrainian law, prescribe one or more of the only 10 possible reasons of rejection of granting a visa to Ukraine:
1. national security or public order protection
2. public health protection, protection of rights and legal interests of Ukrainian citizens and other persons residing in Ukraine
3. existing entry ban to Ukraine
4. passport document is forged, corrupted or not conforming to the established model or belongs to another person
5. false information or counterfeit other documents
6. absent or invalid medical insurance
7. lack of sufficient financial support
8. failure to prove the purpose of foreigner’s/stateless person’s intended stay in Ukraine
9. the absence of documents that make it possible to establish the intention of a foreigner or stateless person to leave the territory of Ukraine before the expiration of the visa
10. revocation of the visa application by the applicant
After such a decision, the officer of Ukrainian diplomatic mission makes a note in the applicant’s passport i.e. “Applied” (“Звертався”) with the date, and gives the refusal decision notification in which one of the above reasons shall be mentioned certified with signature. In case if the visa application was submitted online or trough visa centre the applicant might receive a notification on email. Unfortunately, the provision of more detailed information about the reason of refusal is not prescribed by the current legislation of Ukraine.
Every applicant who received a visa refusal decision to Ukraine has a right to appeal it
In case of rejection to issue a visa to Ukraine, do not be despair – every applicant has a right to appeal such a decision by submitting an appeal letter to the Embassy or Consulate of Ukraine. The term of consideration of visa appeal letter might take about 10 working days. Sometimes, the review of the appeal might take more time but not more than 30 days.
