Marriage with a foreigner

Kyiv | Odesa | Kharkiv

Marriage to a loved one should be a joyful event, not a bureaucratic nightmare. Let our specialists handle all legal issues, ensuring a smooth and happy union!

Foreigners in Ukraine have the same rights and freedoms as Ukrainians. The right to marriage is no exception. This right is defined in the Law of Ukraine “On the Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons”.

The idea of marrying a foreigner and building a life together in Ukraine can be an exciting adventure, but it involves a number of legal subtleties. One wrong step can cost you time, money and even a chance for marital happiness. This is where a lawyer specialising in marriage to foreigners comes in.

Algorithm of actions when registering a marriage with a foreigner

  • Preparation of a package of documents and applying to a convenient registry office with an application for marriage registration
  • the registry office staff sends a request to the SMS regarding the legality of the foreigner’s stay in Ukraine
  • state registration of marriage is appointed one month after submission of the application for marriage registration
  • the marriage registration procedure is carried out by the registry office and a marriage certificate is issued

Ukraine has introduced a fast-track marriage registration procedure called Marriage in a Day. This service is paid and available to everyone. However, if there is a foreigner as one of the parties to the marriage (or two foreigners), this procedure is not available due to the need to submit a request to the SMS before receiving confirmation of the foreigner’s legal stay in Ukraine.

To register a marriage with a foreigner, you must submit the original passports of both future spouses and a notarised translation of the foreigner’s passport. Also, in some cases, it may be necessary to submit a certificate from the country of residence stating that there is no marriage. All documents issued by foreign authorities require legalisation

There are special laws and regulations in Ukraine when getting married to a foreigner. A lawyer will provide detailed advice to ensure compliance with these laws and avoid pitfalls.
