How to extend a residence permit in Ukraine

When a foreigner needs to stay on the territory of a state for a year or more, it is necessary to think about obtaining a document such as a residence permit.

There are two types of such permits in our state: permanent and temporary residence permits. The validity period of a permanent residence permit is, accordingly, unlimited, but a temporary residence permit has a certain validity period. The last document is issued for 1 year, but if there are compelling reasons, the permit can be extended.

Grounds for extending the validity of a residence permit

Obtaining a temporary residence permit is not so easy, but if you need to renew this document, the procedure will be repeated exactly. You will have to submit a similar package of documents to the migration service 15 days before the expiration of the previous residence permit.

The main reasons for extending a residence permit in Ukraine may be:

  1. illness of a foreigner or his close relative (pregnancy and childbirth are also considered), which is confirmed by a certificate from a state medical institution;
  2. the need to stay in the country for
  3. registration of inheritance;
  4. natural disaster or other
  5. an emergency in the immigrant’s home country;
  6. the need to continue staying in the state due to the preparation of documents for a residence permit or citizenship in Ukraine.
