Foreigners can stay in Ukraine on various grounds. When it comes specifically to a permanent residence permit, this becomes the optimal solution for those who:

  • focused on staying in Ukraine for a long time;
  • strives for a wide range of rights and opportunities that allow not only to live on the territory of our state, but also to work and fully realize oneself.

  • the opportunity to live freely on the territory of Ukraine for a huge amount of time;
  • no restrictions regarding entry and exit from Ukraine;
  • the opportunity to live here permanently, but at the same time – not to renounce the citizenship of their homeland (for example, this is relevant for those who got married in Ukraine,
  • but do not want to end their political and legal connection with the state of their origin);
  • an indefinite validity period of the type, thanks to which you do not need to regularly renew it;
  • the opportunity to then quite simply and quickly obtain Ukrainian citizenship if you feel that you really are in your country and want to be in a closer legal connection with it;
  • the opportunity to enjoy almost all the rights that citizens have.

Thus, permanent residence is a good choice in many situations.

When it comes to a document granting the right to temporary residence, it is issued for an hour, after which it requires constant, annual renewal. And the permanent residence permit in Ukraine, as already noted, is permanent. It requires only the replacement of the photo at the age of 25 and 45.

When talking about permanent residence, it is important to remember the immigration quota. In simple terms, this is the number of people per year for whom Ukraine is ready to provide a residence permit. However, the most attractive conditions are provided for people who are not subject to quotas. Among them:

  • one of the spouses married to a citizen of Ukraine for more than 2 years;
  • parents and children of persons who are citizens of Ukraine;
  • persons who, on the basis of territorial origin, have the right to acquire citizenship of our state;
  • persons in whose immigration Ukraine has a state interest;
  • the second of the spouses married to a Ukrainian abroad, if the spouses decided to come to Ukraine together for the purpose of permanent residence.

As for the quota, it applies to different categories. For example, these could be scientific and cultural figures whose immigration is in the interests of our state. We can also talk about qualified workers, investors, foreign volunteers of the Armed Forces of Ukraine who have served for 3 or more years. This list is incomplete.

If you are interested in such issues in more detail, the team of the Prikhodko&Partners law office provides advice and legal support in the process of obtaining a permanent residence permit in Ukraine.
