Temporary residence permit

Temporary residence permit (posvidka) is the document that proves the identity of a foreigner or a stateless person and certifies that its holder has legal grounds to reside temporarily in the territory of Ukraine. This document usually remains valid during one year from the date of issue, but sometimes the period of its validity may be shorter (why?) unlike permanent residence permit, which has indefinite term of validity. Temporary residence permit is a kind of temporary registration of a foreign citizen in Ukraine. The stamp of residence registration (propiska) shall be put in this document within 10 calendar days from the date of issue.

A foreigner shall have solid grounds and strong reasons for acquiring residence permit in Ukraine. Those grounds are specified in the Law of Ukraine “Legal status of foreigners and stateless persons". Such legal grounds for issuing temporary residence permit depend on the purpose of foreigner’s stay in Ukraine. From our personal experience hereunder we list the most widespread grounds for foreigners to receive temporary residence permit in Ukraine.

Grounds for receiving temporary residence permit:

  • studies at higher educational establishment in Ukraine;
  • officially registered work in a company, enterprise or organization situated in the territory of Ukraine;
  • family reunification.

Very often foreigners decide to stay in Ukraine after finishing studies, but in reality they no longer have legal grounds for it. Thus it is easy to become an illegal migrant. Deportation and even the subsequent prohibition to enter Ukraine threaten people with such status.
