I'll travel from Minsk to Dubai by through KBP airport (Ukraine) and will change plane within 5 hours transit (I'm not going to leave the transit zone), Do I need a visa in this case? I am Iraqi with an Iraqi passport.



No, in Ukraine you don't need a visa to switch from one flight to another in the same airport without leaving the transit area. Arguably that's the main point of a transit area: you don't officially enter the country the airport is in.

As a comment points out, in some other countries (e.g. the EU) you might need a transit visa (as an Iraqi, not applicable to all nationalities). But not in Ukraine.

  • This is, at least in general, not correct. It is not uncommon that you need some kind of visa even if you are only transiting at an airport. Oct 4 '20 at 1:29
  • @Tor-EinarJarnbjo: I added some clarifications that my answer relates to OP's question about Ukraine, and is not applicable to every country. Oct 4 '20 at 1:54
