Important to know

Documents for getting a residence permit in Ukraine

Required documents can be divided into two groups:
  1. The documents which are similar for all reasons:
  • Notarized translation of a passport;
  • Photos;
  • Insurance (health insurance policy).
  1. The documents which are submitted according to the reason of getting a residence permit in Kyiv, Kyiv region and other cities and regions:
  • Certificate about marriage;
  • Work permit;
  • Corporation documents of inviting party;
  • Other documents.
We provide services on getting a TRP by a foreign citizen (foreigner or a person without citizenship) according to these reasons:
  • Employment of a foreigner in Ukraine (including representative office of a foreign company);
  • Marriage with citizen of Ukraine or other family relations with citizens of Ukraine;
  • Family relations with a foreigner who stays legally in Ukraine (has a residence permit);
  • Participation in volunteer projects at the territory of Ukraine.
Getting a permit according to another reason is discussed separately.


Can my temporary residence permit become permanent residence permit?
There is no direct transfer. A foreigner usually continues term of a TRP regularly (once per year or another period of time) while the reason of its issuance is still valid. At the same time a foreigner must have a separate reason for getting a permanent residence permit which is not the similar with TRP reasons. Exception can be a marriage with Ukrainian citizen.
Are type D visa and TRP the same?
No. Very often foreigners understand origin of these two documents incorrectly. Type D visa is necessary condition for further getting a TRP but this visa is not a permit. It only provides a right to stay at the territory of Ukraine during 90 days while getting a permit).

It is necessary to know about TRP in Ukraine

The procedure of issuance a TRP is regulated by the Law of Ukraine “On a legal status of foreigners and persons without citizenship” dated the 22th of September 2011. The law is available via the link -  http://zakon3.rada.gov.ua/laws/show/3773-17.

A foreigner must register his place of residence within 30 days after getting a TRS.  

A residence permit for children in Ukraine

Juvenile foreigners don’t get a separate residence permit in Ukraine. Instead of it their information can be putted into a permit of one of their parents.

They have to collect the list of documents:
  • Notarized translation of a passport;
  • A type D visa;
  • A document about family members;
  • Insurance policy (medical insurance policy).
After reaching 18 years, son or daughter of a foreigner must get their own residence permit according to the list of reasons for getting it.    

A residence permit for IT-workers

Workers, who are related to informational technologies, developing of software, deserve additional attention. All below categories of foreigners get a residence permit according to a work permit which was issued according to different reasons.
Employers usually are Ukrainian legal entity.

It may be actual information for several categories of foreigners in this industry:
  1. Owners of It companies. According to the legislation founders of companies, who pretend to take position of a head’s company, can get a residence permit which is valid from 1 to 3 years.
  2. Foreign programmers in Ukraine (software must be one of company’s activities).
  3. Graduates of 100-top foreign colleges according to the international standards (in this case there must be confirmed diploma about higher education).
Also foreigner IT-workers can chose to be employed in representative office of foreign IT-company in Ukraine as an alternative to be employed in Ukrainian legal entity. This option doesn’t demand getting a work permit but registration of representative office is longer and more difficult, comparing to the registration of a company in Ukraine.    

Continuation of a temporary residence permit in Ukraine

A foreigner has to submit the documents for permit’s continuation not later than 10 days before its expiring because continuation takes the same period of time as permit’s getting.

The type D visa is not necessary for continuation of TRP. Except cases when 10-days term is missed or a permit is got according to another reason. Other documents, which had been submitted previously, must be submitted again.

Except it, a foreigner has to submit additional documents in some cases.    

The procedure of getting a residence permit in Ukraine

After discussing final settlements on price and term a Client signs an agreement with the company and pays for services. At the same time a Client hands documents to our migration lawyers according to their request.

After that we start to draft all necessary documents. Prepared documents are signed and approved by a Client (including a power of attorney).

The next stage is conducting all actions which are necessary for getting a temporary residence permit in Ukraine.

After the State Migration Service of Ukraine adopts its decision on issuance a TRS a Client needs only to pick up all documents which were given back by the Migration Service at our company.
