Thomas asks:

Hi, I am trying to get my fiancee out of Ukraine and over to London U.K. She has never had a passport before, and she is not aware of the correct procedure to obtain one.

Please can you advise on the best way to do this. We are getting married In the U.K but im assuming my partner would have to come over on a Visa. Kind Regards

Expert's answer:

The time required to get an international passport in Ukraine varies (from 7 (urgent) to 20 days). You can find official info on the site of Ukrainian migration service (the prices are in Ukrainian hryvnias). This service can be used to automatically translate sites.

It is not a difficult task. The person just goes to the local passport office (there are passport offices in every city), fills out forms, leaves photos and waits. You can find info about obtaining a visa to the UK on the following site.
