Extension of the Stay of Foreigners in Ukraine

Many foreigners come to Ukraine for business, tourist, or other purposes for a certain period and then try to extend it. Moreover, they do not plan to obtain a temporary residence permit or do not have sufficient grounds for it. But if such a situation has arisen, it needs to be resolved, and it is worth thinking about it before the last days of the lawful stay in our country begin to coincide. After all, you can solve your business only legally while in our country.

 

As for the length of stay of foreigners in Ukraine, they are clearly defined.

  • If we are talking about residents of visa countries, the number of days of entry into Ukraine, and the actual validity period, specified in the visa itself. No violation is allowed – at the end of the term, the foreigner must be outside our country.
  • In the case of a visa-free regime, it is allowed to stay in Ukraine for no more than 90 days out of 180, for violation of the stay of a foreigner awaits punishment.

Grounds for Extending the Stay of Foreigners

Strictly defined deadlines need to be met, but the possibility of extending them still exists. However, this is due to emergencies that may arise during the visit. In addition, the grounds for extending the stay of foreigners may vary depending on the type of visa.

  • Representatives of visa-free countries and holders of short-stay visas may extend the term due to childbirth, serious illness, or the need to care for sick relatives.
  • Foreigners who have applied for an immigration permit or to acquire Ukrainian citizenship.
  • Foreigners with a transit visa can stay in the country due to transport repairs, natural disasters, or illness.
  • Those who have a long-term visa can stay in the country for a longer period if they have applied for a temporary residence permit.

Among the reasons for extending the stay of foreigners may also be the impossibility of leaving Ukraine, registration of inheritance, an extension of the correspondent’s order, etc.

How to Extend the Stay

In the presence of one or more of the grounds provided by law, a foreigner must act according to a certain algorithm:

  • to collect papers confirming the identity and legality of the grounds for staying in our country;
  • provide evidence of financial capacity and justification of the grounds for extension;
  • with a full package of documents to apply to the LCA;
  • pay for the service and wait for the decision of the migration service.

It is necessary to treat the design responsibly because any inaccuracy can lead to problems.

IMPORTANTLY! The application for an extension of stay is submitted in person.

 

What Documents Are Required for the Procedure 

  • Passports of the foreigner and the host party (individual or head of the legal entity) and copies.
  • Documented confirmation of the fact that the host party is in Ukraine legally.
  • Confirmation of the financial capacity of the foreigner or the obligation of the host party to bear the costs of maintenance.
  • Housing documents (originals and copies).
  • The receipt or other proof of payment of duty.
  • Of foreigners responsible for extending the stay must be attached to the case.
  • Translations of documents into Ukrainian are also attached.

 

Deadlines for Extension

It usually takes no more than five days to process an application with the LCA. In case of additional inspections of the submitted documents, the term may be extended to 10 days. In exceptional cases, the inspection will last two weeks.

IMPORTANT! You must apply to the LCA for an extension no later than three and no earlier than ten days before its expiration.

The visa determines the length of stay of foreigners from visa countries – a person can stay in Ukraine no longer than specified in it. Citizens from visa-free countries must stay with us for no more than 90 days for 180 unless otherwise specified by international agreements.

The “Migration Calculator” controls the coincidence of the time allotted for legal residence. To determine how many foreign nationals can stay in the country, you must enter the control dates and enter and exit during the controlled period. As a result, the calculator will show the number of days for legal stay.

The use of the service is especially relevant for people who plan multiple entries and exits in a short period – automated counting will help not to get confused.

Refusal to Extend the Term.

They may refuse to extend the term if:

  • documents are improperly executed, they contain errors;
  • the passport of the person is spoiled, damaged, or has signs of forgery;
  • the stay of a citizen in Ukraine poses a danger to Ukrainians and threatens public order or security of the country;
  • the documents contain false information;
  • there are reasonable grounds to believe that the true purpose and grounds for the extension are different from those stated in the application;
  • the financial capacity of the foreigner is insufficient for further stay in the country, or the host party has not provided guarantees of maintenance;
  • the foreigner has not complied with the court decision, has property obligations to the state, etc.

Liability for Violation of the Terms of Stay

Whatever the purpose of the foreigner’s visit to Ukraine, the violator will be punished for violating the term of stay: administrative penalty.

Also, an offender whose stay in the country threatens national security, the health of Ukrainian citizens, or public order may be forcibly returned to the country of origin with a ban on entry for 3 years.

If a foreigner refuses to comply with a court decision on forced return to his country, forced expulsion with a ban on entering Ukraine for 5 years is applied.
