How to appeal the entry ban decision to Ukraine, lift it and remove information from state databases?

Information about foreigner or stateless person shall be entered into the database of persons who according to the legislation of Ukraine are not allowed to enter Ukraine or temporarily restricted the right of departure from Ukraine (so called ban to leave the territory of Ukraine).

The decision to ban the entry into Ukraine for a term of three years is taken by the central executive authority, which ensures the implementation of the state policy in the field of migration (the State migration service of Ukraine), Security service of Ukraine or State border guard service of Ukraine. In the case of failure to comply with the decision on the prohibition of entry into Ukraine, foreigners and stateless persons shall be forbidden to enter Ukraine for a further period of 10 years, which is added to part of the time limit for entry into Ukraine, which did not expire until the second decision on the prohibition ‘ride in Ukraine.

Frequently asked questions (click to see)

The last time when I was in Ukraine I overstayed the allowed quantity of days, on the departure from Ukraine I was told to pay a fine which I paid but the entry ban still is on. Why it so?

In most cases payment of the fine is not enough to avoid or lift the entry ban to Ukraine. If you are in such situation it is recommended first to investigate the reasons of why the entry ban was not cancelled. Please note that the person should pay the fine for overstaying in Ukraine within 15 calendar days or appeal it within 10 days otherwise if the fine will not be paid the amount of it will be doubled and the person will be forced either to overpay for the fine or to sue the state authority.

I stayed in Ukraine without any violations on visa however when I tried to re-enter Ukraine with new visa I was refused a visa because of the point number 3 – there is a record on the foreigners/stateless person in Ukraine’s database on persons who according to Ukraine’s legislation are banned from entering Ukraine or their right to leave Ukraine is temporary restricted.

Sometimes a person might think that he/she did not violate prescribed terms of stay in Ukraine however indeed just did not know about it, it could be even a minor violation which however leaded to such serious consequences. If you are in such situation it is recommended first to investigate the reasons of why the entry ban was filed. 

I stayed in Ukraine without any violations on visa however when I tried to re-enter Ukraine with new visa that I successfully obtained however on the arrival to Ukraine the State border guard service officers did not allow me to cross the border of Ukraine. Instead they filed an entry denial decision on me and departed me back from Ukraine. 

Depending on the circumstances and the official reason (-s) that should be indicated in the entry denial decision if a person was denied to enter Ukraine because there is a record on the foreigners/stateless person in Ukraine’s database on persons who according to Ukraine’s legislation are banned from entering Ukraine then it is recommended to collect the original decision (State border guard service officers are obligated to provide a sample) and to investigate the reasons of why the entry ban was filed. 

I am a citizen of the country that has a visa free regime with Ukraine, when I tried to re-enter Ukraine after my last time stay there on arrival to Ukraine the State border guard service officers did not allow me to cross the border of Ukraine. Instead they filed an entry denial decision on me and departed me back from Ukraine. 

Please read our another legal service on the appeal entry denial decision and resolving of problems on Ukraine border passport check

During my previous stay in Ukraine the State migration service of Ukraine filed a deportation case on me with 3 years entry ban. Is it possible to cancel the ban earlier?

Generally it is possible to do with extrajudicial legal procedures. Depending on the case circumstances, violation or its absence if you are disagree with the charges it is also possible to sue responsible territorial department of the SMSU and force them to cancel the entry ban earlier. Deep and proper legal assessment is mandatory for such type os cases.

I never been to Ukraine before and when I applied on visa to Ukraine I was refused due to point number 3 – there is a record on the foreigners/stateless person in Ukraine’s database on persons who according to Ukraine’s legislation are banned from entering Ukraine or their right to leave Ukraine is temporary restricted.

In rare cases it can happen due to technical mistakes by the Embassy/Consulate of Ukraine and/or the State security service of Ukraine – in such case it is recommended to hire a lawyer to protect your interests and appeal the illegal and unfair visa refusal decision to Ukraine. See more information about appeal procedure on visa refusal to Ukraine here. It is worth to mention that sometimes however the mistake can be occurred due to the applicant’s similar name of another person who indeed has an entry ban to Ukraine. In any case still it will be possible to appeal such an entry ban.

How long does it takes to lift the entry ban to Ukraine? 

Depending on the case circumstances and its difficulty our immigration lawyer will do everything possible in legal way to solve the problem in most possible shortest terms that in most cases do not exceed several weeks. However sometimes the procedure length might be extended due to many reasons such as inadequate responses of state authorities or its delaying, in such cases still our immigration lawyer will not recommend to sue the state authority until all the extrajudicial remedies will be exhausted. Only after that the only possible way will be to sue the responsible state authority, the litigation might lengths from several months to year.

What is the cost of legal work to cancel the entry ban to Ukraine?

Every case is very individual, that is why the cost of legal services on cancelling entry ban (-s) depends on the difficultness of the case, its lasting, the amount of work to be done and the amount of effort required. At first our immigration lawyer should evaluate the case circumstances, check all the available information and documents, clarify specific issues. Anyway, we provide a free initial assessment of the case and legal consultation, therefore, do not hesitate to contact us for any type of inquiries on the matter.

Хочу поблагодарить компанию AR MAX GROUP, в частности Ивана за проделанную работу. Настоящий профессионал своего дела.... Мне поставили запрет на въезд в Украину, совершенно не понятно по каким причинам, ведь я ничего не нарушал. Иван быстро во всем разобрался ( оказалось запрет могут поставить за неоплаченный штраф, даже если его оплатил, но не предоставил квитанции куда надо ). В корокие сроки Иван решил мою проблему и добился анулирования запрета.read more

I turned to Ivan for help to find out if there was a ban on entry and if my payment for the fine had come. Since more... than one service did not give me any answer, and I had plans to come to Ukraine as soon as possible, I turned to Ivan for help and he helped me find out all the necessary information in a short time and I managed to arrive as planned. All the necessary documents were sent to me by Ivan so that there would be no problems at the entrance, these documents were necessary and everything went quickly and easily! I want to say thank you very much for solving my problem and doing everything possible for my arrival! I recommend everyone who has problems with the entrance to immediately contact Ivan for help, do not try to solve it yourself, as you can make many mistakes that I made, but we were able to prevent them in time!read more

До того як ми з батьком моєї дитини, звернулись до пана Івана, він отримав 5 відмов в отримані візи до України. Пан... Іван добре виконав свою роботу, завжди був на зв’язку, консультував у всіх питаннях, і навіть йшов нам на поступки і корегував підготовлені документи декілька разів (в зв’язку зі змінами через карантин та іншими обставинами). Завдяки йому мій наречений отримав візу з першого разу після чергової подачі документів. Щиро рекомендую пана Івана, дуже йому вдячна і задоволена виконаною роботою.read more

My daughter was denied students visa to Ukraine where she intends to study medicine. I had provided every document... including invitation letter from the university, bank statements , sponsorship letter and others needed for Ukraine visa to VFS global ,Dakar. Yet the embassy says we did not prove the purpose of stay in Ukraine ( as per the refusal letter)I felt unfairly treated and decided to make an appeal. Having no idea as to how to write the appeal letter, I went to the internet and googled " Immigration lawyers in Ukraine" I found Armax group and met them on WhatsApp. Immediately they swung into action, in a space of one month the passport with the visa securely sticked in it was in my mail box !!!

    Hi, how are you doing? I was a student in Ukraine and overstayed. When I left the country in September 2018 to get anew visa, I didn’t get an entry ban stamp, neither did I get to pay a fine. The official asked me what happened, after explaining why I did not have registration or a Posvidka, he let me go. When I applied for a new visa, at first the embassy approved it. Then it got denied by immigrat

    Hello sir. I am Rahul Raj an Indian studying in Ukraine. I was expelled in my 3rd course and because of that I overstayed in Ukraine after my residence permit was cancelled. I got overstay fine at Kiev airport while returning. I paid the fine and then the authorities told me that now I can apply for visa again and come back to Ukraine. But when I applied for new visa in INDIA, they refused my visa telling me that I am in the list of people who cannot enter Ukraine. Any help regarding this issue? I am in a big problem because of this.
