  • Opportunity to permanently reside on the territory of Ukraine while retaining the citizenship of your country;

  • Opportunity to enter and leave Ukraine without any limitations;

  • You won’t need to apply for a visa for the next visit to Ukraine;

  • Opportunity to start a business in Ukraine or get a job here;

  • The same rights to medical care, education, volunteer and cultural activities as citizens of Ukraine have;
