"It should be a symbolic first visit," Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin said while visiting Stoltenberg at NATO HQ in Brussels.
"The date will be formally announced in the near future. We agreed to announce the date jointly," he said, adding that it was expected to take place this month.
A NATO official said he could not confirm the visit to Ukraine, a key partner but not a member of the 28-nation military alliance.
NATO has responded sharply to the Ukraine crisis and Russia's annexation of Crimea by increasing its readiness posture and rotating troops and equipment through its former communist eastern members to ease their fears that Moscow wants to reassert its hold over them.

He rejected any suggestion the trip could be considered a provocation to Russia, decrying its support for pro-Moscow rebels in the east of the country.
Russia denies any direct role in a conflict which has cost nearly 7,000 lives since April last year and plunged East-West relations into a deep freeze reminiscent of the Cold War.
