When will Italian citizens need a visa to travel to Ukraine?


Italians must obtain a visa to enter Ukraine if the planned stay in Ukraine exceeds 90 days or if the foreigner is going to Ukraine for the purpose of employment or education.

Upon arrival in the country, a residence permit is issued on the basis of a visa. The procedure for its registration in Ukraine consists of several stages and requires the preparation of a certain list of documents. For example, foreigners are hired by employers on the basis of an employment permit. In turn, this permit is the basis for obtaining the appropriate type of Ukrainian visa and a permit for temporary residence in Ukraine, which is valid during the period of validity of the employment permit. Usually, a visa is issued for one year.

How to plan a trip to Ukraine under martial law?


● Take out a reliable insurance policy

To cross the Ukrainian border, a foreigner must have a medical insurance policy. However, when traveling to Ukraine in conditions of martial law and active hostilities, it is necessary to take care of insurance that covers military risks. This insurance covers damages in the event of an accident due to acts of war or terrorism, outpatient treatment, hospitalization and emergency care.

The insurance policy applies to foreign citizens, subjects of another state and stateless persons. There are no age restrictions. Read more details about the benefits of military risk insurance in Ukraine in our material. You can quickly and easily issue an insurance policy by following the link.


● Make a convenient route for the trip

Due to the martial law, the airspace of Ukraine is closed, so you can only get there by land transport.

The fastest way to get to Ukraine is to fly to one of the European airports located near the Ukrainian border. Then continue the trip by land transport - bus or train.

We talked about convenient routes from Italy to Ukraine earlier. You can see the schedule and buy a train, plane or bus ticket from reliable carriers here.

Tourists who prefer to travel in their own car when traveling in Ukraine should follow certain rules.


● Find a safe hotel to stay at

When choosing a hotel in Ukraine, be sure to pay attention to the presence of a reliable bomb shelter nearby.
