Can I enter Ukraine with a Schengen visa?
iVisa | Updated on Jan 08, 2020

When they travel, some people prefer to apply and obtain a multiple-entry Schengen visa. That allows them to enter any country that is a part of the Schengen Area Treaty. Unfortunately, Ukraine is not a part of that treaty, and while there are a few countries in the world that accept a Schengen visa, Ukraine is not one of them. As a result, you need to apply for a visa before you leave for Ukraine.

You also need to know where to stay when traveling to Ukraine, especially if you want to check the best hotels in the country.
