AmCham Ukraine B-Visa Program

In cooperation with the American Chamber of Commerce in Ukraine, the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv can expedite the U.S. visa application process for employees of AmCham Ukraine member companies in good standing.  The B-Visa program allows AmCham Ukraine member company owners and employees, as well as AmCham Ukraine employees to take advantage of priority scheduling at the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv and utilize special interview hours reserved for AmCham Ukraine applicants.  In most cases, the Consular Section will schedule B-Visa program applicants for an interview within seven business days from their request.

Applicants must be traveling to the United States for a valid business purpose.  Principal applicants must be full-time employees and/or owners of ACC member companies, regularly employed contractors (FOP), or employees of AmCham Ukraine.  Spouses and/or children under the age of 18 travelling with the employee may use the program if they are applying together with the principal applicant.


  • Employees seeking to travel to the United States for purposes other than short-term business
  • Employees who are part-time, interns, temporary, or unpaid
  • Contacts or employees of partner or affiliated companies
  • Employees with prior U.S. visa refusals obtained while applying through the B-Visa program within the past year
  • Spouses or minor children applying without the employee
  • Common-law spouses

Application through the B-Visa program does NOT guarantee issuance of a visa.
