How to Get a Residency and Work Permit for Ukraine

Ukraine Residency and Work Permit

Ukraine Residency and Work Permit

If you have a job in Ukraine or are looking to relocate there, you are going to need to get a residency permit or a work permit and then go to your consulate or embassy in order to get a Long Term One-entry visa.

The best descriptions on the web for the residency permit procedures are here at the Ukraine State Migration Service (you will have to use Google Translate, but this is the most authoritative website on this stuff, so be sure to click on the link and read the information there).

After you have gotten your work/residency permit, you are now ready to apply for a Long Term One-entry visa at your nearest embassy or consulate.

That’s it! It is an incredibly bureaucratic process and I have simplified things a lot, but that is the general gist of what you need to do.

(Go to my Ukraine visa page for information on other types of visas for Ukraine.)
