People living in Ukraine should register their place of residence, to get official correspondence. Registration of residence is not only useful, but compulsory. Absence of registration cause administrative responsibility in the form of a fine. But the very procedure may seem difficult for foreigners who don’t know the peculiarities of work of state bodies.
Residence registration is one of the most important aspects of migration law. One should think of it right after getting a temporal residence permit, permanent residence permit or immigration permit. This data will be fixed in the state register that you could get all official correspondence on your address.
If you want to get a certificate of residence registration, you will need to take a few steps. The first of them is collection of documents. Here is a list of those that you need:
- Passport or a document that identifies a person;
- Bank receipt on state fee payment;
- A card of previous registration cancellation (at presence);
- Documents confirming your right to live at the address ;
- Military ID or registration certificate (if needed);
- Birth certificate (for children under 16 years).
Some people are exempt from paying duty. If you are one of them, you will need to submit documents proving the benefits, instead of bank receipts.
The next step is writing an application. Its sample can be found online or at the department of State Migration Service. At this stage you need to be very careful, because mistakes can cause refusal of issuing the certificate.
If the documents are submitted by a legal representative, he must show his passport and power of attorney.
To “remove” the person from registration one should submit an application, written by that person or his/her legal representative, or the corresponding court decision on termination of residence in Ukraine (for foreigners and stateless persons) or death certificate.
Procedures of registration and its cancellation are similar.
