Temporary residence permit (TRP) in Ukraine

Registration and registration in Ukraine of foreigners for a period

Temporary residence permit (TRP) entitles citizens of other countries to live quietly in Ukraine. Current legislation provides a large number of opportunities for obtaining it. However, not all foreigners use them. Why? Perhaps they just do not own the information. We suggest filling this gap with the help of this article.

The procedure for obtaining TRP in Ukraine has a number of features. The list of grounds is rather narrow and specific. Those who meet all the requirements and will go through all the necessary procedures will receive a document, which in Ukraine is called “Posvidka”. Translated into Russian, this means “Certificate” or “ID cart”.

At the moment, Posvidka is not printed on paper. The document is a plastic card containing a chip containing all the data about a person.

As a rule, TRP is issued for one year. The exception is students. The “Posvidka” is issued to them for the entire period of study: for one year for students in the preparatory department and immediately for four for those who plan to master the undergraduate program.

If necessary, the validity of the Temporary Residence Permit can be extended. “Posvidka” makes it possible not only to freely be in the country, but also to leave and enter at any convenient time.

Who can count on receiving Ukrainian TRP?

Citizens of other states can become the owner of Ukrainian TRP, provided that they:

  • have a permit for employment in Ukraine;
  • have close relatives in Ukraine;
  • have married a citizen of a country;
  • participate in international technical projects and can confirm their participation with documents;
  • are in the country at the invitation of a religious organization to carry out religious activities;
  • are employed in the Ukrainian representative offices of non-governmental foreign organizations;
  • work in bank branches of other countries;
  • carry out cultural, educational or scientific activities;
  • conduct sports activities in Ukraine;
  • participate in volunteer programs;
  • are trained in Ukrainian institutions;
  • work as a correspondent for foreign media;

How to get the “Posvidka” correctly

To apply for a residence permit will have to collect a package of documents. It must be present:

  • translations into Ukrainian of all pages of the passport notarized and having a type D visa;
  • health insurance policy;
  • receipt confirming payment of state duty in the amount prescribed by law.

You will also need to provide documents confirming the basis for receiving TRP. Depending on the situation, their set may vary. This may be a marriage certificate, employment permit, etc.

Who to contact?

Those who expect to undergo the procedure easily and without unnecessary delays can turn to qualified lawyers with similar practice for help.

Otherwise, the process may be delayed. This is facilitated by the specifics of the Ukrainian migration service, and some uncertainty present in the legislation and in general formalism.

When to wait for a solution?

The decision to provide TRP is made within three weeks from the date of submission of documents. Head of bodies of migration service or their deputies are authorized to accept it.
