The child’s citizenship proving procedure is compulsory when obtaining the Ukrainian citizenship for him/her and is required for such child’s parents if they want to obtain a permit for residence in Ukraine based on their child’s Ukrainian citizenship.
There is a legal procedure in Ukraine set by the legislation that determines the main circumstances when the child’s citizenship is to be proved.
For obtaining of the Ukrainian citizenship, the Ukrainian legislation provides certain grounds. They are specified in the Citizenship Act.
One of such grounds is the child’s birth in the territory of our country.
The Act says that children born in the territory of Ukraine are Ukrainian citizens. If both parents of the child born are Ukrainian citizens the child’s citizenship needn’t be proved.
However, there may be a lot of cases in real life when either of parents is a Ukrainian citizen and the other one is a foreigner or both parents are foreigners who legally reside in the territory of the state. The children born to such unions in the territory of Ukraine are given birth certificates.
A new-born’s certificate is doesn’t mean an automatic obtaining of the Ukrainian citizenship. Subsequently, the Ukrainian citizenship proving procedure is needed for such children, based on which the parents are given the respective certificate. The same procedure of proving the Ukrainian citizenship applies to children born abroad to foreigners without the Ukrainian citizenship but who legally reside in the territory of Ukraine and to children of refugees. This certificate is necessary for obtaining a travel passport for the child in case of a foreign trip. In the future, this certificate will be the child’s grounds for adoption of either parent’s citizenship and obtaining of the passport when he/she comes of full age.
In order to obtain such certificate, one should undergo the legal procedure set by the Ukrainian law.
The Citizenship Act of Ukraine Article 7 says that all children born starting from 2001 either parent of whom is a citizen of another state shall prove their Ukrainian citizenship.
The certificate of registration as a Ukrainian citizen is issued by a local body of the State Immigration Service of Ukraine. The application should be filed by the child’s representative at the locality of residence.
