A Temporary Residence Permit is a document permitting residence in another country. The possession thereof enables citizens of the European countries, Russia (the Russian Federation), Belarus, Lithuania, Germany, Poland etc. to work, to carry on business, to study, to be together with a beloved person, to acquire some rights exercised by Ukrainian citizens as well as to be permitted to obtain a credit and releases from the necessity to fill in various forms when crossing the border. An opened visa permits 45 – 180 days’ stay in the country, but if one has to stay longer obtaining of a Temporary Residence Permit is required.


How to obtain a permit for temporary residence in Ukraine?


The procedure of obtaining of temporary and permanent permit for residence in Ukraine is of high current importance but simultaneously of high complexity. Also, today one may observe a great influx of Russian citizens (immigrants from Sevastopol) who desire to obtain the Ukrainian citizenship.


The difficulties in obtaining of a Residence Permit may be an incorrectly written application, out-of-order or missing documents and papers. Sometimes, oral or written translation of the documents may be required. It is necessary to have a check-up and to obtain a registration with the Immigration Service and the Visa and Registration Offices.


Usually, a Temporary Residence Permit is issued for one year with the extension possibility. In addition, there is a list of conditions subject to which it is issued, to wit:


  • when either of spouses may invite the other spouse and the children
  • activities in scientific, educational and cultural development
  • employment
  • studies etc.


Due to the problematic and restless situation in Crimea, many people fell within the refugee status and don’t need obtaining of a temporary residence permit as they are Ukrainian citizens.


What documents are required for obtaining of a temporary permit for residence in Ukraine?


  • an application for obtaining of a temporary residence permit
  • a copy of the registration document
  • a copy of the passport with the D visa and the stamp attesting the border crossing
  • insurance
  • photos (3.5 X 4.5 cm)


Afterwards, having obtained a temporary certificate and a stay permit, upon expiration of the ten days’ period, one needs a temporary residence registration.


One shouldn’t miss the time for extension of the Temporary Residence Permit as after expiration thereof there will be problems with the stay in the country. It may be very difficult to solve the issues of obtaining of a temporary or permanent residence permit on ones’ own without missing many nuances without experience and legal practice.
