Citizenship is a legal bond between a person and a state which creates mutual rights and obligations of a person and a state.

  • being born in Ukraine
  • territorial origin
  • being enfranchised as a Ukrainian citizen
  • restoration of the Ukrainian citizenship
  • acquisition of the citizenship as a result of adoption
  • acquisition of the citizenship as a result of establishment of guardianship (tutelage)
  • other grounds regulated by the Act

  • compliance with the Constitution of Ukraine
  • uninterrupted legal residence in the territory of Ukraine over 5 years

Getting Ukrainian citizenship


For obtaining the Ukrainian citizenship, foreigners, immigrants, refugees and Russian citizens should comply with all legally set requirements and rules. The procedure is very labour-intensive and taking a lot of force and time.


One needs to collect a full set of documents issued by various authorities.


For an incompetent person, especially, a foreigner, it is very difficult to grasp all nuances of the effective legislation of our country and to fill in all applications correctly.


Our Agency’s qualified experts will provide their services and, after analysis of your situation, will give a detailed advice and will help you to find the best grounds for obtaining of the citizenship.


The Agency’s experienced lawyers will competently help to compose a petition, applications and to promptly collect the necessary set of documents meeting the requirements for obtaining of the Ukrainian citizenship.


In each specific case, all legal nuances are taken into account.


The options that are the most acceptable for a customer will be selected which options will have the time limits for completion of the procedure.


Currently, there are two ways to obtain the citizenship: compact and standard procedures. The compact procedure of obtaining of the citizenship applies when the customer’s closest relatives (parents, children, grandmother, grandfathers, grandchildren, siblings) are Ukrainian citizens.


The completion period is 1 month.


The standard procedure of obtaining of the citizenship by a foreigner is rather complicated. The decision on granting the citizenship is made personally by the President of Ukraine with subsequent issue of the respective decree.


The completion period may run up to about 1.5 years.


For the residents of the temporarily occupied territories (Donetsk, Lugansk, Crimea), the occupation doesn’t lead to the loss of the Ukrainian citizenship.


With a passport or other documents attesting the birth in these territories of Ukraine, our lawyers will help a customer to obtain a biometric passport for visa-free trips to Europe.
