The procedure for obtaining an immigration permit

 

Ukraine is not only an example of stability and patriotism for other countries of the world but also a favorable place to live. Here they respect freedom, nurture intelligence and creativity, appreciate positive initiatives, and welcome all those willing to contribute to forming a comfortable common space. Therefore, it is natural that our country looks like a favorable place for life, professional self-realization, and personal development for many people from other countries. Given this, questions arise about the procedure for obtaining an immigration permit. Therefore, we suggest you read this topic in more detail to find important answers.

Let’s turn to the basic concepts.

So, first, let’s look at what is meant by ” immigration permit .” This is a decision made by a specially authorized body belonging to the executive branch to grant the right to immigration. This right can be obtained not only by foreigners but also by stateless persons. The basic legal act that regulates this issue is the Law of Ukraine “On Immigration”. There are also several other existing laws and regulations that detail this issue.

Applying for an immigration permit: what a quota means

There is a special quota for immigration, which applies to certain categories of people. The question of how to obtain a quota immigration permit is quite common. In short, those people whose activities can benefit Ukraine and those who have already been in a legal relationship with our state fall under the quota.

We are talking about cultural figures and qualified professionals whose activities coincide with those determined by the interests of our state. The same applies to investors who have seen a strong potential in our country and invested in the Ukrainian economy 100 thousand dollars.

No less valuable for our state are those who served in the Armed Forces for more than 3 years. They are also subject to this quota. However, achievements, achievements and useful activities for the benefit of Ukraine are not the only grounds on which a person can fall under the immigration quota. This also applies to:

  • parents, husbands, wives, minor children, full brothers, sisters, grandparents, and grandchildren of citizens of our state;
  • those who previously had the status of citizens of Ukraine;
  • those who are victims of crimes related to human trafficking.

In all cases above, the decision to grant an immigration permit under the quota is possible.

Immigration outside the quota: features and conditions

Immigration permits outside the immigration quota are provided to the following persons:

  • a person who has been married to a citizen for more than 2 years;
  • guardian or trustee, if his ward is a citizen of Ukraine;
  • to those who are of Ukrainian origin and have the right to become a citizen of our state;
  • those whose immigration is in the field of Ukraine’s interests;
  • foreign Ukrainians and their families when they came to Ukraine together and are here.

Now it is necessary to address the issue related to the procedure for obtaining a permit in more detail.

In what algorithm it is necessary to act

Obtaining a permit is as follows:

  • first, the person seeking an immigration permit must gather all the documents necessary to carry out this procedure;
  • Once the documents have been collected, it is time to provide them to the diplomatic mission or consulate of Ukraine (a person who wants to obtain an immigration permit must do so where they reside, and if they are legally resident in Ukraine, you should visit the nearest unit of the LCA);
  • then apply for an immigration permit and all necessary documents;
  • when the relevant decision is made, you need to come to the institution where the application was submitted with documents and get permission.

As you can see, the order is quite simple, logical and well thought out. However, it is quite natural that high-quality detailing and answers to additional questions are required in many situations. Therefore, consider them more carefully.

Is it necessary to apply in person?

Such an application must be submitted if the person interested in immigration is legally present in our country. However, several exceptions may be due to valid reasons that prevent the application. For example, in case of illness, natural disaster or other valid reasons that do not allow you to appear in person, you can send a statement by mail. Another option is also possible when submitted by another person in a pre-issued and notarized power of attorney.

In the case of a permit for children, the application is submitted by their legal representatives. Thus, the legislator foresaw all cases and provided the necessary legal mechanisms so that a person who wants to immigrate to Ukraine could do so.

Which of the documents must be presented to the LCA or consulate

The basis for consideration of the application for the possibility of immigration is the relevant application, which is issued in electronic form. This happens when a person submits documents as part of this procedure.

When issuing an immigration permit, identity verification is an important step. Therefore, an identity document is important. It is no less important to confirm that staying in Ukraine is legal. Other documents that include information on:

  • where a person lives abroad, as well as in our country during his stay here;
  • family members;
  • the fact that a person does not have diseases that prevent obtaining an immigration permit to Ukraine (The relevant law defines the list of such diseases – drug addiction, alcoholism, and several infectious diseases. If any of these diseases are present, an immigration permit is not granted ) ;
  • The person has no criminal record (this must be a certificate of a specially established sample).

It is important to note that for each category of people seeking a permit, the Immigration Act sets out separate clarifying requirements. Our lawyers will be happy to advise and answer all questions on immigration. We have enough experience to help you quickly, professionally and efficiently.

How long do you have to wait for a decision?

Documents submitted by a person seeking an immigration permit can be considered for a long time. The decision is made within a year from the moment when the person submits the documents to the relevant institution. The permit will then be valid for one year from receipt.

Also popular are issues related to the cost of the service. This aspect is regulated by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers № 795 of June 4, 2007. When you need an emigration permit, the cost is fixed, but some categories of citizens are exempt from this duty. For example, these are persons with I and II groups of disabilities, victims of the Chornobyl explosion of the I and II categories, and many other citizens. Our experts usually carefully ask the client all these aspects so that we can act as effectively as possible in his interests.

When they can refuse to give permission

Persons with an outstanding or unresolved criminal record cannot apply for an immigration permit to Ukraine. This also applies to people who have the above diseases. People who have committed crimes against peace, humanity and humanity, and war crimes, will not be able to get such permission. The same applies to those who are wanted.

Quite interesting, but at the same time fair, is the point of submitting forged documents or false information about yourself. Sometimes people do resort to such tricks to get a quota immigration permit. Instead, it turns out that they are depriving themselves of this opportunity. It is better to turn to specialists immediately and find a way to properly present real information than to distort the facts in the hope of good luck. The second option ultimately usually leads to denial of permission. No wonder the authorized institutions have enough time to carefully check all the information about a person who wants to immigrate to Ukraine.

Is it possible to revoke the immigration permit? 

This is another important issue of interest to those seeking such permission. Indeed, an immigration permit can be revoked if inaccurate information is provided, and it turns out. The same applies to cases where a person has submitted expired documents.

The permit may also be revoked if the immigrant has committed a crime in Ukraine and is sentenced to more than one year in prison. Thus, our state carefully protects itself by taking care of law and order.

Summing up…

So, summing up such a difficult and multifaceted topic, it is worth noting:

  • Ukraine values those who want to live here and, at the same time, are ready to bring something good to our public life with their work and achievements – that is why the immigration quota is provided for such cases.
  • At the same time, our state protects itself and its citizens, so immigration documents are checked very carefully.
  • Professional advice and assistance will help you or your family obtain an immigration permit without any problems or complications.
