Specialised knowledge for different nationalities

Foreign nationals from visa and visa-free countries face unique obstacles. This is due to various prerequisites, documentation and deadlines. A non-specialist navigating these treacherous waters on their own may inadvertently violate legal regulations or miss deadlines. With our lawyers, you can rest assured that your application will be in full compliance with Ukrainian law, reducing the risks of cancellation or deportation.

Risks of the “do-it-yourself” approach

Although searching for and filing documents on your own may seem cost-effective, there are many pitfalls. Mistakes in the filing process can not only cause delays, but can also result in significant financial losses. Mistakes in the filing process can lead to irreversible legal consequences, tarnish your reputation and jeopardise future opportunities.
