Canadian Embassy in Ukraine
Since its inception, the Canadian Embassy has grown and now incorporates five Canadian government departments. These include International Trade, Foreign Affairs, CIDA, Foreign Affairs, National Defense, Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
The Canadian Embassy in Ukraine provides essential services to both Canadians and Ukrainians. Canadian citizens can contact the Canadian Embassy if they are in need of medical assistance, notarial services, legal services, passport services or citizenship applications, registration of Canadians residing in Ukraine, information about local regulations, emergency services, financial assistance, money transfers, marriage, divorce and death certificates, assistance for arrested or detained Canadians, information on whereabouts and the well-being of Canadians in Ukraine and information about child abduction and custody.
The Canadian Embassy now provides passports to Canadians living in Ukraine. These passports are security enhanced, machine-readable and of the same high quality that you would receive in Canada. This initiative has been going since 13th March 2006 and ensures that all Canadian documents needed for traveling are compliant with the ICAO or International Civil Aviation Organization’s global standards.
The Canadian Embassy‘s working hours are from 08:00 to 13:00 and then from 14:00 to 17:00 during the week. The Visa section will be open during these times from Monday to Thursday for anyone wanting to apply for a visa. Temporary Resident Visa applications can be handed into the Visa section from 08:30 to 11:00 from Monday to Thursday and the Immigration applications can be handed in during the afternoon period from 14:00 to 16:00.
