The approval of the Ukraine eVisa for South African nationals may take up to 3 business days to be processed.
Once the application is approved, the Ukraine eVisa is shared with the applicants of South Africa over email in PDF format.
In case of errors in the visa application, incorrect information, or other unforeseeable reasons, it may take longer for citizens of South Africa to receive the online visa. Therefore, it is recommended to apply for the Ukraine eVisa well in advance of the date of departure.
Once in Ukraine, travelers must show their approved, printed Ukraine eVisa as well as their South African passport to immigration and border officials.
