Passport office

Registration process for foreign citizens:

Passport office Foreign students during their period of study in Ukraine fall under the requirements of immigration law, observance of which is extremely important!

All foreigners coming to Ukraine with the purpose of study shall obtain temporary residence permit from the Migration Service and be registered at the place of their actual residence during study period. For citizens of visa countries migration procedures do not exceed 15 days until visa expiration date (visa validity period is 45 days), for citizens of non-visa countries – up to 75 days from the date of crossing the Ukrainian border.

Migration formalities for foreign students are carried out by Dean’s Office of the Faculty for Foreign Citizens’ Education, where foreign students should submit all the necessary documents and take out migration risk insurance and medical insurance for the period of study.

A temporary residence permit is the document that certifies the identity of a foreigner or a person without citizenship and confirms the legitimacy of your stay in Ukraine; it shall be presented during migration and other checks.

When enrolling at the next level of study or transferring to another university you should be well aware of the residence permit expiry date – the documents for its extension shall be submitted to the Migration Service no later than 15 days before it expires.

If your temporary residence permit expired and it was not renewed on time, you will need to leave Ukraine and get a new visa to enter to continue your studies!
