Ukraine Visa Free 2022: Requirements, How To Apply For The Foreign Legion of the Armed Forces of Ukraine

The Ukrainian government has announced that it will begin issuing free visas to foreigners who wish to visit the country to fight Russia.

On Sunday, the Ukrainian president announced the introduction of the “visa-free” policy, which included the formation of an “International Legion” to accommodate foreign fighters.

The announcement comes five days after Russian troops invaded the country.

So what does this really mean?

Foreigners who wish to assist Ukraine in its fight against the Russian military will not need a visa.

Ukraine’s President Volodymyr Zelensky signed a decree on Monday authorizing a “temporary visa-free regime” for foreigners who want to aid the country’s defense. 

Russian nationals, otherwise known as “citizens of the aggressor state,” do not qualify for the policy.

Before, visas were required for tourists visiting for more than 90 days within a six-month period.

The introduction of visa-free travel follows Zelensky’s announcement of the creation of the International Legion for foreigners who wish to serve in the Armed Forces of Ukraine or the Territorial Defense Forces.

“Anyone who wants to join the defense of Ukraine, Europe, and the world can come and fight side by side with the Ukrainians against the Russian war criminals,” according to a statement on the Ukraine president’s website.

An application to join the legion asks prospective volunteers to detail their military experience and recommends that they bring their own “personal protection,” including a helmet and body armor.

Since 2014, when Russia annexed portions of Ukraine, thousands of foreigners have fought in the country on both sides of the conflict.


Foreigners will no longer need visas to enter Ukraine to fight Russia starting March 1.

Where and How To Apply

Volunteers are required to fill out an application describing their military experience.

 It has also been recommended that they bring their own “personal protection”, such as helmets and body armor.
