Who can apply for citizenship in Ukraine?

Please note! A foreigner must have a legal reason to acquire citizenship of Ukraine. Thus, Ukrainian citizenship may be acquired under the following conditions:

  • By birth. It does not matter whether both parents are foreigners or one of them is a citizen of Ukraine, or parents are stateless persons;

  • By territorial origin - a person who himself or at least one of his parents, grandparents, family (full and half) brother or sister, son or daughter, grandson or granddaughter, were born or permanently resided in Ukraine or the territory that became the territory of Ukraine;

  • As a result of being granted citizenship;

  • As a result of restoration of citizenship of Ukraine;

  • As a result of adoption by a citizen of Ukraine;

  • As a result of establishment of guardianship or trusteeship over a foreign child;

  • As a result of establishment of guardianship over a person recognized by court as legally incompetent;

  • As a result of one or both of the child's parents being Ukrainian citizens;

  • As a result of recognition of paternity or maternity or establishment of the fact of paternity or maternity.

If none of the above reasons can be used for you, you can legalize your stay in Ukraine in another way - first of all by obtaining a Temporary Residence Permit.

Please note! A separate ground is admission to Ukrainian citizenship. Only persons who meet certain requirements and belong to certain categories can be granted citizenship, i.e. they can apply for citizenship at their own discretion:

  • Those who have an immigration permit and have resided in Ukraine for the last 5 years;

  • Refugees or asylum seekers who have been residing in Ukraine for the past 3 years since obtaining their status;

  • Military personnel serving in the Armed Forces and who have resided in Ukraine for the past 3 years;

  • Persons who have been married to a Ukrainian citizen for more than two years and have an Immigration Permit;

  • Persons who have rendered outstanding services to Ukraine;

  • Persons whose admission is of interest to Ukraine.

There are also individual cases, exceptions and additions to this list.

The period and cost of the procedure will depend on the grounds you have and the citizenship scheme (see below).
