The procedure for issuing a temporary residence permit for foreigners has changed

According to the established procedure, foreigners recently received refusal in issuing a temporary residence permit on the grounds that their date of entry into Ukraine preceded the date of receipt of a work permit.

The Cabinet resolved this problematic issue on July 18, 2018 by the relevant amendments to the paragraph 33 of the Procedure for the issuance, issue, exchange, cancellation, transfer, withdrawal, return to the state, invalidation and the abolition of a temporary residence permit.

The amendments stipulate that foreigners and stateless persons (except citizens of the state recognized by the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine as an aggressor state) who, in accordance with the law and international treaties of Ukraine, are not obliged to obtain a long-term visa for the registration of a temporary residence permit and have received a permit for the use of labor foreigners and stateless persons not later than 30 days from the date of their last entry into the territory of Ukraine, have the right to submit documents for the receipt of the light without leaving Ukraine beyond the 15 working days to the end of stay in Ukraine.

In fact, this means that foreigners have no need to leave the territory of Ukraine to obtain a temporary residence permit for employment in Ukraine.

This will help:

- to reduce time and financial expenses of foreigners obtaining a temporary residence permit without a long-term visa, in case of employment in Ukraine;

- to reduce the cost of IT enterprises employing foreigners and stateless persons;

- to create favorable conditions for attraction of highly skilled personnel (foreigners).

It should also be recalled that on 01.06.2018 the CMU Resolution dated 25.04.2018 № 322 "On approval of the specimen, the technical description of the form and the Procedure for the issuance, issue, exchange, cancellation, transfer, withdrawal, return to the state, invalidation and the abolition of a temporary residence permit" came into force.

In accordance with paragraph 17 of this Resolution, documents for the issuance of a certificate shall be submitted not later than 15 working days before the expiry of the established term of stay in Ukraine. Similarly, at the same time, documents for the exchange of a permit in case of expiration of its validity are submitted. In case of violation of the established terms, a foreigner or stateless person can't apply documents for registration, exchange of a temporary residence permit.
