The whole world is now talking about Ukraine, because our country has been heroically defending itself from a full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation for a year now. Interest in our country is growing every day, because despite the introduction of martial law in Ukraine, our country does not stop living. Ukraine is reforming and building all possible ways to raise its economy and living standards.
Since the beginning of the war, more than 40 embassies from different countries of the world have returned to Ukraine, so more and more often you can hear the question - how to get a residence permit in Ukraine?
A residence permit in Ukraine (permit) is an identity document that confirms the legal residence (temporary or permanent) of foreign citizens, as well as stateless persons in the territory of the host country, in other words, a temporary residence permit gives the right to legalize foreigners, as well as stateless persons in Ukraine.
Obtaining a residence permit in Ukraine in 2023 is gaining momentum among foreigners, since the introduction of martial law in Ukraine, because Ukraine provides new prospects and opportunities in starting a business and employment in various fields. Most foreigners, stateless persons, consider Ukraine as a springboard for work, education, participation in public organizations in Ukraine, etc. Arriving in Ukraine, a foreigner / stateless persons, who often do not even know either Russian or Ukrainian, are ready and have legal grounds to receive temporary residence in Ukraine. Citizens of other countries and stateless persons are always looking for lawyers who could provide high-quality advice on all legislative nuances, select the most suitable basis for a foreigner, and also prepare the necessary documents for a residence permit in Ukraine.
