This factor must be taken into account when submitting documents to the migration service. you should understand what your category is for the quota or not and check with the regional division if there is still a quota for your category.

How to start obtaining a residence permit in Ukraine

Of course, the first and most important step in obtaining a residence permit is the existence of grounds. It depends on this – whether you can immediately issue a permanent view, or, for now, you will have to be content with a temporary one.

Grounds for a permanent residence permit in Ukraine:

1. The most common basis is the so-called territorial feature.

non-quota category

 For historical reasons, this basis is often used by & nbsp; citizens of the countries of the former USSR, as well as: Israel, USA, Canada, Australia, where a significant Ukrainian diaspora lives.  

 The reason is determined by the fact that the foreigner himself, brother or sister, dad, mother of a foreigner or grandmother-grandfather were born on the territory of the Ukrainian SSR (UPR, ZUNR, UD or Transcarpathian & nbsp; Ukraine) before 08.24.1991. Also, in addition to & nbsp; birth, the basis for obtaining a permanent residence permit is the fact of permanent residence.

Confirmation of the foundation: confirmation of the foundation is most often a birth certificate on the territory of the Ukrainian SSR up to 91;

it is also necessary to confirm the date of absence of residence in Ukraine at the time of 08.24.1991 in order to exclude the fact that the applicant has Ukrainian citizenship;

++ this means that depending on the circumstances, the document is provided either by the client himself, and in case of impossibility or absence of the document, our lawyers help to obtain or claim the necessary document.

Confirmation of the grounds for obtaining a permanent residence permit in this case is associated with certain difficulties for the client, since, often, there are no original birth certificates of relatives, especially if they have already died. In this situation, our lawyers will be able to demand the necessary documents from the Civil Registry Office or the archive, and in case of impossibility or absence, prove the necessary fact in court.

2. Also, a common basis for obtaining a permanent residence permit is marriage registration, and, accordingly, the subsequent family reunification.

There are two options, depending on the circumstances:

2.1. Marriage with a citizen / citizen of Ukraine

non-quota category

Important: in case of registering a marriage with a citizen / citizen of Ukraine, you get the opportunity to obtain a permanent residence permit only through & nbsp; 2 (two) years of being married, however, a foreigner has the opportunity to obtain a temporary residence permit for these two years. How to do this you can read below in the section on a temporary residence permit.

The undoubted advantage of using this basis for obtaining a permanent residence permit is the opportunity to apply for Ukrainian citizenship in 2 (two) years. All other grounds, in general, require 5 (five) years of uninterrupted residence in Ukraine (with the exception of refugees – three years). You apply for a permanent residence permit and immediately after receiving you can apply for citizenship.

quota category

The same package of basic documents; as a document confirming the basis, most likely, there will be birth certificates confirming the relationship of a foreigner with citizens of Ukraine. If these documents are not issued in Ukraine, they will need to be legalized (apostille stamp or consular legalization) in the manner prescribed by law.

5. Registration of guardianship or trusteeship, or if guardianship or trusteeship by a citizen of Ukraine has been registered with respect to a foreigner, it also makes it possible to issue a permanent residence permit.

non-quota category

The basis must be confirmed by a package of documents on registration of guardianship or trusteeship.

6. The right to obtain registration within the immigration quota is also held by: workers of science, art and workers of unique professions that are necessary in Ukraine

quota category

The annual quota on this basis is extremely insignificant, so we will not describe the procedure in detail, we only note that the basis can be letters – petitions from the relevant ministries of Ukraine (for example, the Ministry of Culture) justifying the need to provide an immigration permit for a specific foreigner.

7. Foreign Ukrainians and their family members

non-quota category

The term “foreign Ukrainian” is a citizen of a foreign state who has Ukrainian roots, Ukrainian nationality (confirmed by a birth certificate), but for certain reasons, who have received another citizenship. There are a lot of such people among the citizens of Canada and Australia, where the main flows of Ukrainian immigration were sent in the 20th century. & Nbsp; The status of a foreign Ukrainian can be obtained at the Embassy / Consulate of Ukraine in the country of his permanent residence. By contacting there, if you have reason, you can get & nbsp; a certificate of a certain sample, which, in the future, will serve as the basis for obtaining a permanent residence permit in Ukraine.

It is important to understand that family members of a foreign Ukrainian have a basis for obtaining a permanent residence permit in the event of a joint arrival in Ukraine at the same time as a foreign Ukrainian.

The documents that will serve as the basis for this category will be a certificate of a foreign Ukrainian for family members: a marriage certificate translated with notarization of the translation into Ukrainian and a birth certificate (for children) or another document certifying birth.
