How Can I Get A Permanent Residence Permit In Ukraine?

Trying to apply for a permanent residence permit in Ukraine can be extremely time-consuming and the forms can be very confusing. It will take up to one year for acceptance or not and is handled through the State Migration Service.

The number of people who will be approved is based on the quota set down by the Cabinet of Ministers for each area of entitlement. You should meet with people who understand the entire process and help you get the permanent residence permit you are seeking.

What A Permanent Residence Permit Is:

A permanent residence permit in the Ukraine is a document that confirms legal status on the basis of someone’s entitlement to stay in the Ukraine for an unlimited period of time.

What Are The Qualifications For Receiving A Permanent Residence Permit?

The permanent residence permit may be given to someone only on the premise of an immigration permit. The Ukrainian legislation has an enormous list of entitlements which will allow someone to obtain an immigration permit, followed by a permanent residence permit. The qualifications include:

  • Having been part of the Ukrainian citizenship in the past.
  • Investing into the Ukrainian economy with not less than one-hundred thousand dollars.
  • Someone has family members who are citizens of Ukraine, including parents, children, siblings, and grandparents.
  • Grandchildren of a Ukrainian citizen, guardians, trustees, wards of citizens.
  • Husbands and wives of foreigners who are citizens qualify, but they must be married for more than 2 years.
  • Those who have achievements in the field of science and culture as long as this person’s immigration will serve the interests of Ukraine.
  • A worker or someone who is highly qualified within a given field that will meet the needs of the Ukraine.

  • Someone has rights to citizenship under territorial origin.
  • The status of a Foreign Ukrainian, and a husband or wife of a Foreign Ukrainian.
  • The status of persons who have suffered from human trafficking and the state of their living conditions over the past 3 years.

The Process For Receiving A Permanent Residence Permit In Ukraine:

Annually, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine authorizes the immigration quota. Meaning; the limited number of people who have a right to an immigration permit within a given year on each requirement. This does not include those who are close relatives of Ukrainian citizens, those who’s immigration meets the interests of Ukraine or those who want citizenship of Ukraine under territorial origin.

The process of receiving a permanent residence permit in Ukraine is extremely time-consuming and very complicated. The applications are considered by the State Migration Service for one year. At that point, the person is given a permanent residence permit.

The number of documents required for an application varies in different cases and on what grounds someone is requesting citizenship.

Medical tourism in Ukraine

Medical tourism is the travel of people to other countries with the purpose of getting health care. Not only does health tourism give people an opportunity to get qualified medical treatment, it also lets them see new countries, see the sights and find out more about local traditions.

medical tourism ukraine

Health tourism is getting increasingly popular for a number of reasons, which include:

  • health insurance in the home country doesn’t cover the treatment of certain diseases;
  • the clinics in the home country don’t have necessary equipment or quality health care;
  • the cost of medical services in another country is substantially lower than it is in the home country.

Lately Ukraine has been ranked very high on the list of top destinations for health tourism. Medical tourists come here from a variety of locations including Asia, the CIS countries, Germany, France, the UK and North America.

The demand for the following specialists has been the highest:

  • dentists;
  • ophthalmologists;
  • surgeons.

For instance, the cost of high quality dental care services in Ukraine is 4 to 7 times cheaper than it is in many other countries. This is why thousands of medical tourists come to Ukraine every year to get dental treatment and oral health care services. Getting dental implants has been especially popular since in Europe and in the US this procedure costs around 2,000 euros and 3,000 dollars respectively, while in Ukraine its price varies between 500 and 800 dollars.

Plastic surgery is another popular branch of medical care. First, the actual operation is much cheaper in Ukraine, and second, you don’t need to pay the surgeon’s fee, which is the case in many other countries.

Spa towns and sanatoriums are yet another reason why medical tourists choose Ukraine as their health care destination. Truskavets, Morshyn, Khmelnyk, Berdiansk, sanatoriums and spas located in Carpathian Ruthenia are popular with both Ukrainians and guests from other countries, who are attracted by Ukraine’s mild climate and beautiful nature in combination with comfortable accommodation and board as well as quality and inexpensive health care services.

International students studying in Ukraine consider high quality medical services at affordable prices one of the biggest advantages of getting higher education in Ukraine.

Additionally, recent devaluation of the national currency has made the cost of medical services even cheaper for medical tourists.
