The government has simplified the conditions for the stay of foreign journalists in Ukraine
Now foreign journalists accredited during martial law will be able to work without renewing their temporary residence permit in Ukraine after it expires. Restrictions on the period of stay in Ukraine will not apply to journalists. Such rules are established by the Government for the period of martial law and within 30 days after its abolition or termination.
The Ministry of Defense of Ukraine will inform the Administration of the State Border Guard Service and the State Migration Service about the accredited media representatives.
This decision was due to the need to simplify the activities of foreign journalists to cover the war in Ukraine.
It will be recalled that according to the Law of Ukraine “On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons”, foreigners and stateless persons who arrived in Ukraine to work as a correspondent or representative of foreign media and received a temporary residence permit are considered to be legally resident on the territory of Ukraine for the period of work in Ukraine.
