Obtaining Visa

by Beezneez Online Now Mar 28, 2013 at 12:49 AM

I am planning to visit Kiev for a couple of weeks at the end of April.
A couple of weeks ago, I sent all the documents required to the Ukraine Embassy in Canberra, passport, application form, photos and payment.
Today I have received everything back from the Embassy, with NO visa and no explanation that I had done anything wrong!
Has anyone else had this problem? as now I don't know what to do.
Beezneez.

    Well, you can't expect the embassy to give you an explanation....They never do it. You can resubmit your documents...

    I suggest you call the embassy at the number provided on their site. Very strange indeed. Could the visa section have been outsourced as a lot of embassies are doing now and the embassy site not yet updated?

    Yes, PHONE the Embassy! Be patient as consular staff are notorious for not caring. But gentle insistence will get you your answer. And when you do get the visa, be sure to check it carefully.
    I once paid for a "multiple entry" visa to Russia. However, I don't read Cyrillic and to my dismay discovered they'd only given me a single entry. So be careful, read/translate everything! The upside is you're going to love Ukraine.

    Hi, I will take your advice and phone them after Easter, I was a bit concerned as I had sent two separate emails to the address on their web page and they were both returned as, 'not known' .
