Why you may be deported
There is a few reasons of deportation from Ukraine. First is the expiration of your visa to Ukraine or temporal residence permit. And not always it your personal fault, sometimes it may be caused by natural disasters, illness, accidents, etc. In such cases the term of your stay in Ukraine may be prolonged. Expiry or loss of documents is another reason for deportation. That is why any document, if lost, must be restored by its owner as soon as possible. One more reason is connected with breach of rules of stay in Ukraine.
If, while staying in Ukraine, you break the law, there are three possible options:
- Be imposed the penalties prescribed by the laws of Ukraine.
- Shortage of your stay in Ukraine.
Foreigners and stateless persons have to serve penalties for administrative and criminal offenses as well as Ukrainian citizens. After the penalty is served foreigners may be deported. In addition, you may be expelled if you are a dangerous person to Ukrainian or endanger the interests of the state, or you have crossed the state border illegally.

Procedure of deportation from Ukraine
Deportation means you have to leave Ukraine during a certain period. Public officers must inform you about your rights and duties (at the presence of the translator, if needed). In some cases (if you committed a serious violation or are endangering the state and its residents), a stamp “undesirable person”(“persona non grata”) may be put into your passport. You can appeal against the decision on deportation, but in this case you will still have to leave Ukraine within the specified period. To delay this process, you can contact the diplomatic representative of his country.
If the decision on your deportation was made, you must immediately be given the opportunity to contact a lawyer, a diplomatic representative of your country or to another person you wish.
In most cases, a simple inattentiveness or bad knowledge of legislation become reasons of problems in migration sphere. Make yourself safe and contact lawyers, because bad knowledge does not make free from responsibility.
