If you are a foreigner who came to Ukraine and delayed here or plan to stay more than 90 days, this information is for you. You need to extend your stay for the entire period of the circumstances in order to be legally on the territory of Ukraine.
In accordance with the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine from 15.02.2012 № 150 "On approval of the extension of the period of stay and extend or reduce the period of temporary stay of foreigners and stateless persons on the territory of Ukraine", in case of extending the period of stay in Ukraine it is necessary to appeal to the territorial office of the Migration service not earlier than 10 days and no later than 3 days prior to the expiration of the first registration term.
You got the first registration at crossing the state border, when the official of the correspondent body marked "Entry" in your passport, brought the information to the relevant register or filled in an immigration card.
Extension of stay means putting a correspondent stamp in the passport, which is affixed a registration seal. If international agreements stipulate foreigners’ entry to Ukraine with a national passport, extension of stay in Ukraine, at their request, is issued by writing out a set-in check to the passport.
Grounds for extending the period of stay depends on the type of visa on which you entered.
Extending is possible in the following cases:
1. Transit Visa - in case of a forced stop in Ukraine in connection with emergency for the period necessary to eliminate such emergency;
2. Short-term visa or entry of citizens of the countries with visa-free entry (Azerbaijan, Belarus, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Russian Federation, Uzbekistan) - if there are reasonable grounds to extend their stay on the territory of Ukraine (treatment, pregnancy, childbirth, care for a sick family member, claim rights to inheritance, submission of an application for permission to immigrate or obtaining citizenship of Ukraine, etc.);
3. Long-term visa - if within the term of visa validity the documents giving the right to stay or reside in Ukraine for a period exceeding 90 days were not issued for legitimate reasons.
