So that there are no problems with going abroad, you should take care of all the necessary documents. Territorial subdivisions of the Ministry of Internal Affairs have this issue within their competence. It is important to know that submitting an application for a permit to travel abroad on a permanent residence is possible in 2 formats:

  • The first option is when you act independently;
  • The second option is when you involve your legal representative. Let's talk about it in more detail, and also note how the services of the Prikhodko&Partners law firm can be useful.

What documents must be provided?

The key starting point for solving this question is to write an application, to which you need to attach 3 photos. Their size is clearly prescribed by current legal regulations, it is 3.5 by 4.5 centimeters.

When interacting with representatives of the State Migration Service, it is important to have not only originals, but also copies of documents that are needed. So, we are talking about the passport and the certificate of registration first of all. When the interaction takes place through a representative, he must also confirm his identity and provide a document certifying that he has such representative powers. There is no need to provide additional documents when it comes to the child's parents or adoptive parents, as their legal representative capabilities derive from their very status.

What you need to know about going abroad for a child aged 14 and over?

From the mentioned age, the departure of a child abroad can be exclusively voluntary. Such consent must be notarized. If the child has not reached the age of 16, and one of the parents is against his going abroad, the corresponding permission can be obtained in court. By the way, in the conditions of martial law, the legislation in these matters is much more loyal than in the usual period.

Also, together with the documents, a check for the payment of the fee provided by the law is submitted.

From the age of 16, people independently submit all the above-listed documents to the relevant department of the Social Security Administration. And up to the age of 16, or in the case of limited legal capacity, it is done either by one of the parents, or one of the guardians or custodians.

What are the terms of consideration of documents?

The territorial unit of the State Internal Revenue Service has 5 working days to consider the documents submitted by the applicant. It is also important to deregister your place of residence in Ukraine. Further, a certain mark will be made in the domestic passport and the passport for traveling abroad. It is usually what is meant when they talk about a stamp for going abroad for permanent residence.

What else is important?

In addition to all of the above, you also need to take a certificate from the fiscal service, which will certify the payment of income taxes for individuals, as well as the fact that there are no tax obligations. Customs officials ask her when a person crosses the border.
