Translations Not Necessary for Ukrainian Fiancee Visa Interview
Contrary to popular belief the personal documents your fiancee takes to the interview in Kiev do not need to be translated as long as they are in Ukranian, Russian or English.
There are a lot of folks who don’t want you to know this because they make good money charging for so-called “Certified Translations”. Here is the exact wording directly from the United States Embassy in Kiev:
TRANSLATIONS: Documents in English Ukrainian or Russian do not need to be translated. When you arrive for the interview you MUST present all the original documents accompanied by an English translation which is produced by a certified translator only if the document is not in English Ukrainian or Russian.
