VOLUNTEERING AS GROUND FOR TEMPORARY RESIDENCE PERMIT


As you can read in our article “Temporary Residence Permit Candidates”, there are 12 categories of foreigners who can obtain temporary residence. The process of obtaining temporary residence differs a little bit for each of the categories. Thus, here we will analyze one of the grounds often used by foreigners to get a Ukrainian residence – volunteering.


The procedure for applying for a temporary residence permit is regulated by the Order of Arranging, Issuance, Change, Cancellation, Shipment, Withdrawal, Return to the State, Recognition Null and Void and Termination of the temporary residence permit, approved by the Regulation of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 322 dated April 25, 2018.


To get a temporary residence permit based on volunteering a foreigner must submit to the State Migration Service of Ukraine the following documents:

  1. application by the established form signed by the foreigner;

  2. original of the foreigner’s passport having the D-type visa that is returned to the foreigner after being checked;

  3. copy of the foreigner’s passport with the D-type visa;

  4. translation into the Ukrainian language of the foreigner’s passport with the D-type visa;

  5. insurance policy;

  6. bank receipt certifying payment of the state duty for granting temporary residence;

  7. invitation of a NGO inviting the foreign volunteer;

  8. copy of the NGO’s registration certificate;

  9. four (4) colored photos in size of 3.5 x 4.5 centimeters;


A temporary residence permit for volunteering is issued within 15 calendar days from the date of submitting the documents and is valid within one (1) year.


A temporary residence permit will be handed over to the foreigner in person thus no PoA is possible in this case.


State duties for issuance of a temporary residence permit are:

  • UAH 34.00 state duty;

  • UAH 447.46 administration fee for a permit’s blank;

  • UAH 340.00 fee for issuance of the permit.
