The legality of staying on the territory of Ukraine is an important component of the life of foreigners in Ukraine.

In order for a foreigner to stay on the territory for a longer time, he needs to issue residence permits, which are divided into two types:

  • Temporary residence permits
  • Permanent residence permits.

Thus, both temporary and permanent residence permits are documents that certify the identity of a foreigner and confirm the legal grounds for temporary or permanent residence in Ukraine.
Residence permits are issued in the form of cards, where the biometric data (parameters) of the alien are entered: digitized face image, fingerprints and signature. Since June 1, 2018, these documents are issued regardless of the age of the alien.TEMPORARY RESIDENCE PERMIT
