What is a permanent residence permit and how does it differ for a foreigner?

Permanent residence permit is a special residence permit in Ukraine, which differs in its validity period and greater difficulty in obtaining it, if compared to the residence permit.

As for the duration - it's not quite permanent, that is issued not forever - but you can not bother to reapply for about 10 years. 

But to get a permanent residence permit will not work or open a firm in Ukraine. You will need more serious reasons, such as marriage to a Ukrainian, which has lasted more than two years, or the presence in Ukraine of close relatives who already have a permanent residence permit. There are also special categories of professions, which provide for the possibility of obtaining a permanent residence permit in Ukraine, for example, in the IT sector.

Another difference is the timing of obtaining a residence permit. For a permanent residence permit it is almost a year of waiting. In addition to the permit itself, you will need to first obtain a permit to immigrate to Ukraine.

Important! You must apply for a permanent residence permit status in person - no one can do it for you.

Of course, this type of permit will give you benefits, the simplest - no need to collect the documents every year. The best one - opportunity to apply for citizenship one day.
