Peculiarities of marriage with a foreigner in Ukraine

Peculiarities of marriage with a foreigner in Ukraine

The procedure for solemnizing a marriage with a foreigner itself does not differ at all from the procedure for registering a marriage between citizens of Ukraine. However, in order to carry out state registration of marriage, legal grounds are required.

The main condition for registering a marriage with a foreigner is confirmation of the legality of staying on the territory of Ukraine. Only after documentary confirmation of such information, the executive authorities (Civil Registry Office) can register a marriage with a foreigner.

To do this, a foreigner must present a foreign passport with a note on the date of entry into Ukraine or a permanent or temporary residence permit.

If a foreigner has granted a permanent or temporary residence permit, the legality of this document is checked using the Internet service of the State Migration Service of Ukraine on the basis of information of invalid documents.

The Civil Registry Office draws up a request to the territorial department of the State Migration Service of Ukraine in such cases:

  • the foreigner does not have a temporary or permanent residence permit;
  • no mark on the issuance of a permanent residence permit on the last page of the foreigner’s passport.

The request is sent no later than the next working day from the date of submission of the marriage application.

The territorial body of the State Migration Service of Ukraine notifies the relevant body of the Civil Registry Office about the results of the check on the day of receipt of the request or no later than the next working day.

State registration of marriage is carried out only after receiving a positive response from the territorial body of the State Migration Service of Ukraine.

What documents do you need for marriage with a foreigner in Ukraine?

What documents do you need for marriage with a foreigner in Ukraine?

Applying for marriage in Ukraine, a foreigner should present:

  • original passport or passport document and its notarized translation into Ukrainian;
  • original of foreign passport or permanent / temporary residence permit;
  • documents confirming the termination of the previous marriage (duly legalized) in the case of remarriage and its notarized translation into Ukrainian.

Marriage with a foreigner without presence in Ukraine

Marriage with a foreigner without presence in Ukraine

Is it possible to marry a foreigner without being present – the most common question of Ukrainian citizens who plan to connect their lives by marriage with a foreigner. Part 1 of Art. 34 of the Family Code of Ukraine regulates the procedure for entering into a marriage and provides for the mandatory presence of spouses at the time of state registration. Part 2 of Art. 34 of the Family Code of Ukraine excludes the possibility of registering a marriage through a representative.

Often, the absence of a foreign groom or foreign bride is due to the difficulties connected with arrival to Ukraine.

After submitting an application for marriage, the future spouses should wait within a month of the day of registration of the marriage. However, if there are good reasons for the future spouses, the period for consideration of the application may be reduced and it will be possible to register a marriage with a foreigner earlier than a month.

Experience family lawyer Alexey Nikolayevich Skriabin will advise and help to collect the necessary documents for the quick registration of a marriage with a foreigner in Ukraine.

Apostille on marriage certificate for its use abroad in Ukraine

After registering a marriage between a citizen of Ukraine and a foreigner, a reasonable question arises – how to use a marriage certificate in the country of citizenship of a foreign husband / wife?

Depending on the requirements of the country, as well as the signed international agreements, a single or double apostille is placed on the marriage document. This procedure is regulated by the Order of the Ministry of Justice of Ukraine No. 2268/5 dated 11.11.2015 and provides for affixing an apostille stamp on the documents of the Civil Registry Office / Civil Registry Office (on the page apostille on the documents of the Civil Registry Office / Civil Registry Office).
