When you have your date of arrival to Ukraine fixed, it is critically important to send a timely notification to our University about the date, time and point (airport) of your arrival and flight number. You can do it yourself or via an agent with whom you cooperate. You are advised to inform your university you need someone to meet you in the airport in case your friends, relatives or acquaintances who are already staying in Ukraine cannot meet you. If your friends or acquaintances are meeting you at the airport, you are advised to inform the University of their contact details as the University sends these details to the border control. During passport control the Border Service can verify whether the persons mentioned in the notification to the University are meeting you. This is intended to ensure your safety in a new country, especially in cases when your university is located in a city different from the airport city in Ukraine.
