Before applying to the residency, non-resident should obtain D-visa, which is issued by Ukrainian Embassies abroad for 90 days. There was initiative by Cabinet of Ministers in 2019 to issue D-visa in Ukraine, but this procedure doesn’t work, we gave interview on that to one of the biggest Ukrainian news provider.

There are countries, citizens of which are not required to get D-visa, such as Azerbaijan, Belorussia, Georgia, Russia, Uzbekistan. Other citizens are required to get D-visa.

Important! Citizens of the countries listed above (except Russia), haven`t to leave Ukraine after obtaining work permit. They can submit documents for residence permit anytime (need to submit documents no later than 15 working days before the end of the period of staying in Ukraine). Earlier citizens of the countries listed above, have to leave Ukraine after obtaining work permit and enter again, except for applying for residence permit within 30 days after last entrance to Ukraine based on work permit, but this rule was canceled on October 09, 2020.

Non-resident is required to apply not later than in 15 working days until termination of his d-visa or within the 30-days period after the last arrival in Ukraine (for the countries citizens of which are not required to get D-visa). The period of foreigner’s stay in Ukraine (which is equal to the period of visa validly) can be prolonged if the term is missed by admissible excuse (such as treatment, pregnancy, care for a sick family member, registration of inheritance, performance of official duties by a foreign correspondent or a representative of a foreign media) by application given not earlier than 10 working days and not later than 3 working days before expiration.

After obtaining the residence permit it is required to get registered at some address in Ukraine in period of 30 days. Otherwise, the fine would be applied. The amount of the fine to pay depends on the term of the delay and can increase from UAH 1700 to 5100.

In the case of changing the place of registration, a non-resident should get registered at the new address within thirty calendar days after deregistration of the previous place and arrival at the new place of residence.

After the expiration of the residence permit, a non-resident is obliged to cancel the registration at the address and leave Ukraine within seven days after the expiration. Additionally, a non-resident should hand over his residence permit to the State Migration Service.
