If you think you might be traveling to Ukraine on a regular basis (at least once a year) to visit your fiancée’s family and her homeland, you might want to consider getting a multi-entry business visa. Depending on how long it is issued for, it will almost certainly be cheaper than getting two single entry visas. The added bonus is that if you ever need to go to Ukraine with little warning, you already have your emergency visa.
Others can tell you how to get a business visa better than I can since I got mine almost three years ago. (If you do find out the current procedure for getting one, please post it since my business visa expires in November I will need to apply for a new visa soon. Also, please let us know any tricks you can discover for getting it for the maximum allowable duration.) It is my understanding that the application does not have a proof requirement that you are actually traveling to Ukraine for business. Moreover, I have never had any problems going through passport control or customs at Borispol on my business visa. When I am asked why I am coming to Ukraine, I just say I'm there on business and to visit family. It works every time.
