A foreigner can obtain a residence permit in Ukraine by obtaining a residence permit on the basis of employment. In this way, a foreigner can stay in the country for a period exceeding the validity of a visa or visa-free regime. 

However, this residence permit can be issued only after obtaining a work permit in Ukraine.


We have described in detail how a foreigner can find a job in Ukraine in this article.


How to get a residence permit in Ukraine on the basis of employment?


This type of residence permit in Ukraine is issued only if you have a D-type visa 04. As a reminder, D-type visas are issued for the purpose of further processing by the competent authorities of Ukraine of documents entitling you to stay or reside in Ukraine for a period exceeding 90 days. 


To obtain a D visa, a foreign employee must personally apply for this visa at the Ukrainian embassy at the place of his/her citizenship or permanent residence. The embassy considers the visa application and makes a decision on granting or refusing a visa on an urgent basis within 5 days, and on a regular basis within 10 days from the date of receipt of the documents. 


In this case, documents issued by the competent authorities of a foreign country must be legalized and translated into Ukrainian. 


The documents required to apply for a type D visa are as follows:


— passport document;

— a completed and signed visa application form;

— color photo;

— a valid health insurance policy;

— proof of sufficient financial security for the period of stay;

— tickets, hotel reservation/confirmation of the address of stay in Ukraine;

— a certified copy of the work permit for foreigners and stateless persons (work permit).
