Reasons to apply for permanent residence in Ukraine.
Ukrainian laws provide for certain reasons why a person can obtain a permanent residence permit. There is an opinion that it is usually issued to those who have continuously lived in the country for more than five years. However, this opinion is erroneous. Thus, a person without Ukrainian citizenship who married a Ukrainian citizen can obtain a residence permit within two years, and in the event of a marriage with a foreigner who already has a residence permit, he can be obtained immediately. Citizens of Ukraine who refuse to become citizens can also immediately replace him with a permanent residence permit.
The procedure for obtaining a permanent residence permit in Ukraine.
If you want to get a permanent look and have all the reasons for this, you will need to go through several legal procedures. The first step in this direction is the collection of documents. So, you need the following list of papers:

In addition to paying for the service itself, it is also necessary to pay the state fee. Some categories of persons are exempted from this procedure (disabled people and the first and second groups affected by the Chernobyl tragedy). Instead of a receipt, they can file a document confirming their benefits.
In some cases (depending on the country from which you are moving), a long-term visa may be required. A copy of it must also be added to the package of documents.
You need to apply for a permanent residence permit during the period during which the immigration permit is valid. As a rule, it is issued for a period of one year.
The next step is to write an application. His sample you can find on the Internet or ask at the office of the State Migration Service of Ukraine. At this stage, you need to be as attentive as possible and check the statement several times after writing.

After that, the application and documents must be carried to the local medical department. It must be done personally. Your case will be processed within seven days. If everything was done correctly, later you can get a residence permit in Ukraine.
In some cases, the state may refuse to issue a residence permit. The reason for this can be the danger that a particular person presents to the country and its residents, as well as the identification of fraud or an improperly executed statement.
In order to move to a permanent place of residence in Ukraine, you must have a proper immigration permit. Such a document can be obtained within or outside the quota of immigration, which was established by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.

In order to obtain an immigration permit to Ukraine, it is necessary to apply to the appropriate subdivision of the GTS of Ukraine and provide the list of required documents:

The order of consideration of the permission to immigration.
An interested person submits an application for immigration permission in person. In exceptional cases, if valid reasons do not allow you to come personally to the appropriate HMS unit, documents can be sent by mail. It is also possible to attract a representative, for example, a lawyer, a specialist in this industry. His powers must be confirmed by a notarized power of attorney.
If the applicant is a minor or an incompetent person, then his / her interests in the state institution are represented by the parents or guardian. Their powers are confirmed by a birth certificate of a minor or a decision of the competent authority on the appointment of a guardian. If the documents are sent by letter, then the authenticity of the signature of the applicant is also notarized. A sample application for an immigration permit can be found on the HMS website.
Consideration of documents lasts about one year. If the issue is resolved positively, the applicant receives a permit valid for the year. Refusal is allowed only on the grounds established by law. In particular, if a person has committed a crime against humanity or has an outstanding conviction for actions for which he was sentenced to deprivation of liberty for more than a year. Also, persons who have entered false information in the application or provided knowingly inauthentic documents (which have lost their force or are counterfeit) are refused to provide the corresponding service.

Questions about the permanent residence permit (permanent residence), which are often asked to us by foreigners:
& # 8212; Can a foreigner get permanent residence after 5 years of legal residence in Ukraine?
No, he can not. Residing legally in Ukraine regardless of the term of such residence (five years, ten years or more) does not give any additional advantages.
& # 8212; If a foreigner receives a temporary residence permit for more than one year (five years or more), can he expect a residence permit?
The temporary residence permit is in no way connected with a permanent residence permit (permanent residence). The number of years of stay in Ukraine on the basis of a temporary form does not affect permanent residence, except for the case of marriage, because to obtain permanent residence it is enough for a foreigner to be 2 years in marriage.
& # 8212; Is it possible to obtain a permanent residence permit remotely or by proxy through a lawyer?
A foreigner must apply for an immigration permit (permanent residence) only in person. Yes, an immigration lawyer must be with him to clarify what documents he signs and submits and help with their registration, but an immigration lawyer can not do it in the absence of a person. If someone such promises & # 8212; most likely he (she) is a fraud and we do not recommend contacting such persons.
& # 8212; How long should a foreigner stay on the territory of Ukraine?
Obtaining a permanent residence permit in Ukraine does not oblige a foreigner to permanently reside on the territory of Ukraine. A foreigner after receiving an immigration permit may stay on the territory of Ukraine (or outside it) for as long as he / she needs.
& # 8212; Is it possible to register an alien without obtaining a permanent residence permit (permanent residence)? Does this propiska give any additional advantages?
Register (register the place of residence) can only be when a foreigner has received a residence permit. Registration in an alien’s passport is impossible. The registration does not give any advantages.
& # 8212; What gives a permanent residence permit to an alien?
In addition to the right to reside on the territory of Ukraine, the immigration permit has a number of advantages: 1) obtaining an immigration permit by at least one of the foreigners entitles them to permanent residence for members of the immigrant’s family (mother, father, children); 2) the right to import your personal property (car) within 6 months after receiving permanent residence without payment of customs duties.
& # 8212; Need to change the permanent residence permit of the old sample?
The permanent residence permit for the old sample looks like a cardboard scan and consists of a one-page document composed in half. Such a document (a certificate of permanent residence) is not subject to mandatory replacement and has no validity period. But its use can cause some inconvenience. After all, it is this sample (and not the residence permit of a new model that looks like a green passport) that is much easier to forge and is often not in the database. There was also a case where the loss of a residence permit in Ukraine of the old model led to the need to begin procedures for obtaining an immigration permit first (anew the entire procedure), as the case materials were not preserved. If you replace the old model with a new one, you will avoid additional problems that may arise with the loss of residence permits or suspicions of forgery of such a document. If replacement is necessary, please contact the phone numbers indicated on the website or +380960020100.
