Note that a few “first-world countries,” namely Australia and New Zealand, aren’t included in the list; citizens of these countries must obtain visas even for short visits.

UKRAINE’S 90/180 RULE FOR VISA-FREE ENTRY

Upon entering or exiting Ukraine, your passport is looked over or scanned by a computer to determine the number of days in the previous 180 that you have spent within Ukraine. (Note that 90 days is a little less than 3 months, and 180 a little less than 6 months.) If this number is above 90, you could be refused entry or fined as you leave. This is more likely at airports such as Kyiv Boryspil and less likely at some land border crossings, such as Schehyni-Medyka near Lviv, where the 90/180 rule continued largely to be ignored for some years after its official adoption.
