Requesting documents in Ukraine

The procedure for requesting documents

The bureaucracy makes finding the right documents seem like a difficult quest. Fortunately, with the right legal support, this seemingly difficult task can become very easy.

Imagine this situation: you have lost a vital document and you are in a panic. This is where document recovery comes into play. This is a procedure for processing and obtaining duplicate documents issued by government agencies. This can be done for various reasons, for example, to replace lost documents or to obtain additional copies for various purposes.

All information about documents issued to an individual is stored in databases or registers of the issuing authority, for example, in the civil registry or in the archives of the Ministry of Justice. The good news is that you can request copies of these documents that will be legally equivalent to the original. Unfortunately, there is no single authority that deals with these requests. You can do it yourself or have a person authorised by you do it.
