: : I have done more than "some" checking. As I stated in an earlier post - the *MAXIMUM* duration for a business visa is 3 years. However, it is at the discretion of the issuing authority if they wish to issue the visa for the maximum duration - or something less than that.
: : Obviously, in your case - they chose to issue the multiple-entry visa for only one year. That is common practice unless the applicant supplies substantial information as to why a longer-term visa is appropriate. Why do I know all this? Well - I am glad you asked. Because I was initially issued a multiple-entry business visa for only one year - and I contacted the appropriate Embassy/Consulate staff and was re-issued the business visa good for a 3-year term.

: : : I think all you guys need to do some checking. I have a multiple entry visa (Вагаторазова)I assume that is what this means. But anyway my visa is not for six months it is for a year. This is not a guess, my visa is in front of me issued by the embassy in Washington.
: Dan is correct about the business visa. It can be issued from six months to three years. In my case, I had a business invitation letter(written on June 5, 2002) from a Ukranian company in Odessa. The Ukranian Consulate in New York only issued me a business visa for six months, from june 11-December 2002, with only one entry into the Ukraine.
Unless they made a mistake, my visa is not a business visa. At least that is not what I asked for. My comment regarded a personal visa being issued for only six months when my visa is for a year. Hope this clarifies my comments.
