What is Ukrainian long-term visa?
Many countries have some special visa and immigration rules and procedures. Ukraine is not an exemption. Long-term visa or visa type D for Ukraine is a special type of visa. It can be issued only if an individual has any grounds to apply for a temporary or permanent residency in Ukraine. It is obviously that you can obtain this type of visa only in the embassy or a consulate of Ukraine. It is impossible to get this visa inside Ukraine. Consider also that Ukrainian visa type C can not be changed or transformed into visa D.
Regardless citizenship all individuals are obliged to obtain this type of visa to be able to reside in Ukraine for more than 90 days during 180 day period. Ukrainian visa type D is a kind of green light to apply for a residency in Ukraine. Consider that this visa is issued only for 90 days. Even if you are going to apply for 3 year temporary residency still the long-term visa is issued for 90 days.
Consider that after you have got the visa D you have to come to Ukraine and apply for residency during 75 days but in any case before your visa expires. Your documents for residence permit in Ukraine can’t be submitted if you don’t have this visa. Even if you are in Ukraine and you have all the main documents to apply for residency (except visa D) still you need to travel out from Ukraine to the nearest embassy or consulate of Ukraine and get that visa.
