How to Draw Up An Invitation for a Visa?

An invitation from the host party is one of the documents submitted for the Ukrainian visa. Mostly, invitations are required for short-term visas, but in some cases an invitation is required for a long-term visa (for purposes such as assistance in the international technical project, work for the representative office/permanent establishment of a foreign company in Ukraine, religious or volunteer activities, etc.).

The invitation can be provided by a legal entity or an individual. It depends on the purpose of the visit.

An invitation from a legal entity must comply with the following requirements:

 

be issued on the official letterhead;

 – contain the following information:

– registration number,

– date,

– number of the legal entity in the United State Register of Legal Entities, Private Entrepreneurs and Non-Governmental Organizations of Ukraine,

A copy of the extract from the United State Register of Legal Entities, Private Entrepreneurs and Non-Governmental Organizations of Ukraine providing the details about the legal entity shall be attached to the invitation. Moreover, other documents from the host party may additionally be required for certain visa types.

An invitation from an individual must comply with the following requirements:
