FOREIGNER’s LIVING ADDRESS REGISTRATION

Updated: Jun 28, 2019


Once the foreigner receives his/her temporary residence permit, he/she is obliged to register at his/her living address in Ukraine within next 30 days.


To register at the address the foreigner (or his representative under a notarized PoA) shall submit to a center of providing administrative services by this address the following documents:

  1. written application;

  2. temporary residence permit;

  3. receipt on payment of UAH 04.00 of the administrative duty;

  4. dwelling lease agreement.

By registering a foreigner at his/her place a landlord undertakes some legal obligations, liability and risks:

  • in case of violation by a foreigner of Ukrainian immigration law the landlord may be brought to administrative liability and be fined in the amount of UAH 8500;

  • the apartment a foreigner is registered at maybe searched, arrested and be subject to other legal actions if this foreigner gets in some legal troubles;

  • early termination of a rent agreement as well as dissolution of residence registration may be impeded in some cases and in some cases it may be done only via court;

  • in some cases the law prohibits to terminate a rent agreement and dissolve the residence registration;

  • in some cases the landlord is charged higher price for utilities for every extra person registered at the dwelling;

  • some landlords still believe that registration at a dwelling gives a right to get title on this dwelling. It is not true, it happened a long time ago during the USSR times.

All these makes landlords reluctant to agree on registering their tenants at their dwellings disregarding of tenants’ citizenship. That is why it often takes time, effort and money to solve this issue and there is no some average price for this type of service.
