Previous invitation for residents of another country
Previously, in order to issue an invitation, the party that invites submitted its appeal to the territorial department of the State Migration Service: individuals – at the place of residence, legal entities – at the place of stay.
Legal entities sent the following documentation to the State Migration Service:
- completed application form;
- a photocopy of the director’s passport data;
- a photocopy of the representative’s passport data;
- extract from the Unified State Register;
- the shape of the bank of a specific sample;
- a decree appointing a representative working with residents of another country;
- approval of residence in the host country: hotel reservation or other documentation (in Ukrainian and for the entire stay of a resident of another country in Ukraine);
- a photocopy of the passport data of the representative who is sent to work.
Civil law subjects sent the following documents to the State Migration Service:
- completed application form;
- your passport (after receiving the documentation, return it to the applicant);
- a document granting the right to permanent residence – if invited by a resident of another country who permanently resides in Ukraine (after receiving the documentation, they return it to the applicant);
- documentation testifying to employment, internship, education, etc. – if a resident of another country with temporary residence in Ukraine invites;
- documentation evidencing payment of state duty;
- A photocopy of the passport details of the person who is invited, with a translation into Ukrainian, certified by a notary.
The invitation was issued by the body of the State Migration Service for a rather long period of time – 20 working days from the date of application, but it was possible to reduce this period to 10 days. The fee for issuing an invitation to residents of another state in Ukraine was very small, which justified such a long period of registration.
