Registration of citizenship of Ukraine

Citizenship of Ukraine

Citizenship of Ukraine is a definite, stable legal connection between the state of Ukraine and a person, which is expressed in the presence of a whole complex of mutual rights and obligations in relation to each other. & nbsp; In Ukraine, the principle of “single citizenship” is established and operates. This means that a foreigner who wants and has the right to obtain Ukrainian citizenship is obliged to terminate his current citizenship. Our lawyers will provide support, both in obtaining Ukrainian citizenship, no matter how difficult your question is, and in issues of renouncing citizenship!

Recently, Ukraine has become more and more popular. Foreigners go to Ukraine with the aim of starting a business or investing in the economy, for the purpose of training, for humanitarian purposes. The issue of obtaining Ukrainian citizenship became especially popular after Ukraine received a visa-free regime for visiting with the countries of the European Union.

In the international rating of passports, Ukraine is ranked 41st. With a biometric passport, a citizen of Ukraine can enter 129 countries of the world without a visa.

Obtaining Ukrainian citizenship by territorial origin (simplified procedure)

The procedure for registering a foreigner as a citizen of Ukraine is simplified without the need to consider the case in the Commission on Citizenship Issues under the President of Ukraine. The case of such a foreigner will be considered, with a decision, by the territorial body of the State Migration Service.

Accordingly, the period for consideration of the application is significantly reduced. The term for consideration of such a case in the district division of the migration service is up to three months.

Foreigners who were born on the territory of the Ukrainian SSR or which became the territory of the Ukrainian SSR, as well as territories that were part of the states, the legal successor of which became Ukraine, can apply for Ukrainian citizenship according to a simplified procedure.

Also, the basis is the fact of permanent residence in the territory of the Ukrainian SSR until 08.24.1991 – the date of the adoption of the Independence of Ukraine. It should be noted here that the permanent term “permanent residence” should be understood as a person’s permanent registration in a residential building or apartment. Student registration – in a hostel, or military – in a military town, was not a permanent registration !

Also, the basis for registration will be the fact of birth or permanent residence in the above-mentioned territories:

  • mothers / fathers;
  • grandparents;
  • son / daughter;
  • brother / sister;
  • grandson / granddaughter of a foreigner.

Most often, a birth certificate on the territory of the Ukrainian SSR can serve as a confirmation of the foundation. If the basis is the fact of the birth of a relative of a foreigner, then birth certificates of all relatives are required, for example, grandfather – dad – a foreigner. Also, with this option, if one of the relatives changed their surname, for example, in marriage, then a document confirming the change of surname will also be required.

They are freed from all of the above requirements, that is, it is not required to provide an immigration permit and certificates of income and proficiency in the state language, and the period of permanent residence in Ukraine for such categories of foreigners is not required:
