Nonimmigrant Visas

Effective immediately, the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv will start processing H-2B (*MRV fee $205), and C1/D (MRV fee $185) visas.  Additionally, an extremely limited number of B1/B2 (MRV fee $185) appointments for applicants with urgent medical or humanitarian concerns are now available. If you would like more information on whether you qualify, and instructions on how to request an appointment for any of these services, follow the relevant instructions on our visa navigator site. Please note that we will only accept scheduling requests received via the visa navigator. The U.S. Embassy in Kyiv remains closed for all other non-immigrant visa services at this time.

Important Information Regarding Visa Fees: Applicants attending a visa interview in Kyiv must pay their MRV fee in person with the Embassy cashier at the time of their interview – online payment is currently unavailable.

Effective March 2, 2022, the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv has discontinued the acceptance of nonimmigrant visa application fees at all Raiffeisen Bank Aval branch locations in Ukraine. All fees purchased on or before this date are considered expired as of September 30, 2023.

More information on fees and non-immigrant visas is available via our visa navigator.

IMPORTANT!  Possessing a valid U.S. non-immigrant visa in your passport does not grant any privileges for male individuals aged 18-60 and female military personnel to cross the Ukrainian border during martial law. This restriction is in accordance with Ukrainian state law, and the U.S. Embassy cannot intervene with the Ukrainian military on this issue or provide any supporting documents to U.S. visa applicants seeking permission to exit Ukraine.
