Important to know

Information about our consultations on the matters of foreign nationals staying in Ukraine

Arrival and stay of foreigners on Ukrainian territory reasonably raises some legal questions.

These questions are mostly connected to the documents that are necessary for entering Ukraine, term (duration) of permitted stay without necessity of registration with the governmental authorities in charge.

The legislation of Ukraine provides that when a foreigner visits Ukraine for a short period of time, then the primary registration (which takes place at the border crossing point) is enough, if he/she is going to stay in Ukraine not more than 90 days during 180 days from the moment of the primary registration.

Additional information about legal services of legalizing foreigner’s stay in Ukraine

If you want to stay on Ukrainian territory more than 90 days during 180 days period from the moment of the primary registration then you need to get a temporary or permanent residency permit, citizenship or prolongation of staying in Ukraine.

The procedure of prolongation of stay is stipulated by the Instruction on the procedure of prolonging term of staying in Ukraine, which is approved by the Order of Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine No. 363 as of the 25th of April 2012.

As a result of prolongation of limits for staying on the territory of Ukraine, you will get a special registration stamp in your passport. Additionally, the information about the foreign national will be included into special forms of governmental registers. For citizens of some countries this procedure may involve obtainment of a separate document that is attached to the foreigner’s passport.

We strongly recommend foreign citizens and stateless persons to follow all the rules related to stay on the territory of Ukraine, because in the case of their violation there are sanctions to be imposed, with the worst case scenario being deportation with possible placement in camps of temporary stay of foreigners.
