Marriage as a basis for obtaining documents for residence in Ukraine or other countries

residence permit in ukraine by marriage

Marriage is one of the most important stages in a human’s life and is accompanied by an extremely large number of warm emotions and memories in the future. However, in addition, marrying a foreigner in Ukraine opens a number of new perspectives and opportunities for obtaining the right to reside in Ukraine, by obtaining a temporary and, subsequently, permanent residence permit.

Thus, a temporary residence permit (for 1 year, renewable) is a document that foreigners marrying in Ukraine can receive to legally stay in Ukraine and which will identify and give them the right to enter and leave it (without a visa), as well as work for a certain period.

The permanent residence permit provides more rights for a person, which gets married in Ukraine and almost equates him with a citizen of Ukraine (except for suffrage), but is issued after 2 years of marriage and is valid for 10 years.

What are the possibilities of marriage in other countries

The same practice exists in other countries, where on the basis of marrying, like in Ukraine, and the marriage certificate confirming it, a person can obtain legal grounds for residence, for example, in Poland and Germany.

  • temporary residence permit in Poland (karta czasowego pobytu)
  • permanent residence permit in Poland (karta stalego pobytu)

Another advantage for foreigners that are marrying in Ukraine is the possibility of immigrating to a third country as a legal spouse, provided there are grounds for doing so. For example, if one of the spouses has grounds to reside in another third country of which they are not citizens, then the wife or  husband, who gets married in Ukraine, also has the opportunity to obtain documents for residence in that country.
