RELEVANT INFORMATION

IMPORTANT TO KNOW ABOUT PERMANENT RESIDENCE

Permanent residence permit in Ukraine is a document containing the identity of an alien or a stateless person and providing legal basis for their permanent residence in Ukraine. Starting from 01.06.2018, it is produced in form of an electronic ID-card.

The status is given to aliens or stateless people who have permission to immigrate into Ukraine or had been permanent residents of Ukraine before they made a decision about termination of Ukrainian citizenship and remained permanent residents after that decision.  

The status is given to aliens or stateless people who stay on the territory of Ukraine on legal basis and

  1. Have reached the age of 16, based on the applications submitted by them personally;
  2. Have not reached the age of 16 or had been declared legally incompetent or with limited competence, based on the applications of one of the parents (foster parents), tutors or guardians, with whom these people live based on the permission to immigrate.

The ground for getting the status is the permission to immigrate and arrival for permanent residence in Ukraine.

Here is a list of documents for getting permanent resident status:

  • Passport of an alien with a D visa, unless otherwise provided by law (the document is returned after its presentation), and its copy;
  • Translation into Ukrainian of the passport of an alien, authenticated in accordance with the law;
  • Valid health insurance;
  • Passport of a legal representative, if the documents are submitted by such (original documents are returned after their presentation, and the copies are submitted without return);
  • A copy of the decision about granting permission to immigrate or one of the documents according to the category of an alien or a stateless person:
    • Individuals, who had arrived for permanent residence in Ukraine before the Ukrainian Immigration Act was introduced and have either a residence stamp in their passport of a citizen of the former Soviet Union of the 1974 model or permanent residence permit, are to submit the original and a copy of their passport of a citizen of the former Soviet Union of the 1974 model or permanent residence permit;
    • Individuals forced to leave their places of permanent residence in the Autonomous Republic of Abkhazia who have arrived in Ukraine, as well as their underage children, who had arrived in Ukraine with them before coming of age, are to submit a temporary certificate (or a certificate confirming the fact of arrival of a minor with their parents), received upon their arrival in Ukraine, and a document confirming the fact of their continuous residence in Ukraine for at least five years, given by territorial bodies of the State Migration Service of Ukraine;
    • Individuals, who have arrived in Ukraine as orphaned children due to military conflict in their places of permanent residence and are (were) brought up in state institutions or in family-type children's home, or have been put under guardianship of Ukrainian citizens, are to submit documents that confirm being (having been) brought up in state institutions or in family-type children's home, or being (having been) put under guardianship of Ukrainian citizens;
    • Aliens or stateless people, who had been permanent residents of Ukraine before they made a decision about termination of Ukrainian citizenship and remained permanent residents after that decision, are to submit certificate of termination of Ukrainian citizenship of the standard form, given by territorial bodies of the State Migration Service of Ukraine.

Timing requirements for getting permanent resident status:

Up to 15 working days until the end date of legal residence of the alien in Ukraine.

The client submits the documents personally; the procedure lasts approximately an hour. In 15 working days after the submission, permanent resident status is ready to be received at the Migration Service.

The period of validity of permanent resident status is ten years. After the end of this period, the status has to be extended.
