Ukraine visa

Jump to last reply

I'm a US citizen, have been living and working in Ukraine for 2 1/2 months now, and I'm curious as to whether anyone has any insight on my situation.

I received a 90-day stamp when I entered the country, but the 90 days will run out fairly soon. i am working for an English school in Kyiv, and although we were originally told that we'd be able to apply for a visa in Budapest or Moldova, we haven't received an invitation yet. It doesn't look like I'll be getting a visa before my 90 days are up; many of the other teachers at my school don't seem to think it's a big deal and have told me not to bother; they haven't gotten visas either. My question is whether anyone can tell me if this is an administrative or a criminal offense, and whether there's any chance that I could be arrested or thrown in jail. I've been told that it's administrative, but I was wondering what other people have to say about it, or whether anyone has had an experience related to this. I also plan to stay until the end of August, about three months extra.
