A certificate certifying the registration of a child as a citizen of Ukraine is issued as a result of obtaining citizenship according to the relevant decree of the President. Such a reference is of great importance in many situations. Therefore, we suggest that you familiarize yourself in more detail with the cases in which it is possible to issue it.
When can this certificate be issued?
So, this type of help is available when:
- both parents of the child are foreigners and legally reside in Ukraine;
- one of the parents is a foreigner;
- the child was born to Ukrainian citizens, but it happened abroad.
In all of the listed cases, you need to issue a certificate to confirm your citizenship. To do this, you should contact either the relevant territorial unit of the Ministry of Internal Affairs in Ukraine or a consular institution abroad.
Why is this reference so important?
The certificate we are talking about serves as confirmation of Ukrainian citizenship. On its basis, it will be possible to draw up a number of important documents for the child, which are important for the realization of his legal subjectivity. Namely, it refers to a passport of a citizen of Ukraine for traveling abroad and an internal passport in the form of an ID card, which can be issued when the child reaches 14 years of age.
What documents are required to issue a certificate?
To issue a certificate, you need to submit a corresponding application. If adults do it on their own, then in the case of children, it can be about legal representatives. In addition to the application, you need to add a receipt from the bank, which will certify the payment of the fee established by the current legislation. Also attached are 2 photo cards, the size of which should be 35×45 mm.
What is the deadline for providing such a service?
The certificate that the child is a citizen of Ukraine must be issued no later than 10 days after the child received citizenship. In the context of this article, we are talking about a 10-day period from the moment of the relevant presidential decree.
Can service be denied?
Yes, the current legislation of Ukraine provides for a specific list of reasons for refusing to issue such a certificate. This is about acquiring the citizenship of Ukraine in a fraudulent way, submitting knowingly false information or false documents.
So from this follows the conclusion that if the child’s parents submit reliable data and there are grounds for his registration as a citizen of Ukraine, you will not have any problems with issuing the certificate.
