Think of us knows some favorite Western world? A little bit disappoint. Here is an excerpt from the requirements of the visa center of the Netherlands in Kiev.
General requirements for the travel document:
• Passport or official travel document valid for all Schengen countries must be valid for at least 3 months after departure from the Schengen area, and have at least 2 blank pages for visa.
• Validity of passport should not exceed 10 years.
• If you are not a citizen of Ukraine, you must provide the original and a copy of the residence permit in Ukraine, valid for at least 3 months after your return from the Schengen territory.
< • passports of citizens of Nigeria, which extended hand will not be accepted by the Embassy of the Netherlands.
So still have a lot to learn. In any case, manually renew the passport has not yet matured.
