The Embassy of Ukraine recently opened two visa application centres in Saudi Arabia’s Riyadh and Jeddah in partnership with VFS Global, the world’s largest outsourcing and technology services specialist for diplomatic missions worldwide.
VFS Global and the Embassy said in a joint statement that both the centres have started accepting visa application submissions for processing both short-term and long-term visas to Ukraine.
Yurii Tereschenko, head of consular section of the Embassy of Ukraine in Saudi Arabia, said, "The new visa application centres have been opened in the light of increasing number of travellers to Ukraine from Saudi Arabia. The centres will considerably ease the visa application process providing streamlined service to expatriates from the Kingdom wishing to travel to Ukraine for both tourism and business purposes.”
The opening of the visa application centres follows the VFS Global mandate from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine. Under the terms of the contract, VFS Global is entrusted with the opening of ten visa application centres in eight countries across the Middle East, Levant region and South Asia.
