Simplification of issuing documents procedure

On October 9, Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine adopted a decision that simplifies the procedure for issuing Temporary residence permits for certain categories of foreigners.


From now on, foreigners who are citizens of countries with visa-free entry and who stay in Ukraine legally will have the right to apply for a Temporary residence permit without leaving Ukraine due to a change in the purpose of entry. Please note that the changes were adopted on October 9, and accordingly, there is no practice yet.

It is worth remembering that the documents for a Temporary residence permit without leaving Ukraine are still submitted - no later than 15 working days before the end of the allowed period of stay.

It should be also highlighted that the simplified procedure for issuing a temporary residence permit will not apply to citizens of a state-recognized as an aggressor state by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.
