Visa for Turkish citizens for a long-term stay in Ukraine 


If there is a need to stay in Ukraine for a period longer than 90 days, Turkish citizens need to obtain a long-term visa. 


The Consulate General of Ukraine in Istanbul notes that Turkish citizens can apply for a visa only at the VFS Global visa centers located in Istanbul and Izmir.

Useful tips for Turkish citizens to enter Ukraine
