Getting a residence permit in Ukraine through volunteer organizations

Views: 905

Obtaining a residence permit in Ukraine on the basis of work in a volunteer, public or charitable organization may be needed in several situations:

  • If this is your main occupation, you want to work in a volunteer organization located in Ukraine and you need an official residence permit to be able to work without leaving the country;

  • If you do not have other options for obtaining a residence permit in Ukraine, and this way will suit you as a suitable basis for obtaining a residence permit.

Important! If your case is the second option, you must first determine how well it suits your expectations, because it has its limitations. For example, the inability to get an official job without additional permits.
