Foreigners, who are citizens (subjects) of several states, must terminate all States citizenship.

Foreigners who have been granted refugee status in Ukraine or asylum in Ukraine, instead of an obligation to terminate foreign citizenship submit a declaration of refusal of persons granted refugee status in Ukraine or granted asylum in Ukraine of foreign citizenship.

A child who was born or permanently resided on the territory of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic or at least one of his parents, a grandfather or a grandmother was born or permanently resided on the territories which belong to Ukraine, and who is a stateless person or a foreigner, to whom an obligation to terminate foreign citizenship is admitted, can be registered a citizen of Ukraine at the request of one of the parents or one of the trustees or guardians.

A child who was born on the territory of Ukraine after 24 August 1991 and has not obtained the citizenship of Ukraine by birth and is a stateless person or a foreigner, to whom an obligation to terminate foreign citizenship is admitted, can be registered a citizen of Ukraine at the request of one of his legal representatives.

Foreigners who have recognized an obligation to terminate a foreign citizenship must submit this document issued by the competent authority of the correspondent State to the competent authorities of Ukraine within two years from the date of their registration to be the citizens of Ukraine. If foreigners, having all the reasons as required by the laws of that state to get such a document, for reasons beyond their control, cannot get it, they submit a declaration of renunciation from foreign nationality.

Submission of the obligation to terminate a foreign citizenship is not required from foreigners who are citizens (subjects) of the states the laws of which provide for automatic termination of citizenship (nationality) of these states simultaneously with the acquisition of citizenship of another state; or if the international treaties of Ukraine with other countries, whose citizens are these foreigners, provide termination of citizenship of these states simultaneously with the acquisition of the citizenship of Ukraine. Individuals who have been granted refugee status in Ukraine or granted asylum and stateless persons are not required to submit the obligation to terminate a foreign citizenship, too.

 

IMPORTANT

The date of obtaining the citizenship of Ukraine in the cases provided for in this article is the date of registration of a person’s obtaining the citizenship of Ukraine.

A person who has obtained the citizenship of Ukraine and filed a declaration of renunciation of foreign citizenship is obliged to return the passport of a foreign state to the authorized bodies of the state. The requirement of taking on an obligation to return the passport of a foreign state does not apply to persons who have been granted refugee status in Ukraine or granted asylum in Ukraine.

In the absence of documents confirming the fact of permanent residence or the person's birth until August 24, 1991 on the territory that became the territory of Ukraine according to the Law of Ukraine "On Succession of Ukraine" or on another territory, which was a part of the Ukrainian People's Republic, West Ukrainian People's Republic, the Ukrainian State, Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, Trans Carpathian Ukraine, Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (USSR) at the time of his birth or during his residence, or in case of absence of the documents that prove relevant family relationships, the relevant court decision for obtaining the citizenship of Ukraine must be supplied.
