Exit from Ukrainian citizenship / Deprivation of Ukrainian citizenship.

A. Withdrawal from Ukrainian citizenship.

Withdrawal from the citizenship of Ukraine at the moment is still associated with significant problems and for certain groups of people is almost impossible. In addition, the whole process is disorderly and complex. We will help you competently, efficiently and willingly in this matter.

In order to lose Ukrainian citizenship, such steps are required:

To begin with, consent is required to obtain citizenship from the German competent authority. As a rule, this is the local Office for Foreigners in the applicant’s place of residence.

In matters of deprivation of Ukrainian citizenship, only the Ukrainian embassy is competent. The Embassy will ask:

Consent to accept for citizenship with an apostille and a transfer or a German citizenship certificate. Ukrainian passport with a note about a permanent place of residence abroad. Valid German residence permit. Consular registration in the Ukrainian Embassy as a Ukrainian-foreigner without residence in Ukraine. 4 passport photos.

Additionally for minor children who also leave the citizenship:

If all the conditions are met and all the above documents are available, the embassy starts processing the application and, upon completion of the process, confirms the withdrawal from the citizenship.

At present, the process takes up to one year.

This confirmation must be presented to the Office for Foreigners Affairs for acceptance into the citizenship of Germany as proof of the withdrawal from the citizenship of Ukraine.

But before you start the process of getting out of citizenship through the embassy, you need a consular registration at the embassy as a Ukrainian as a foreigner.

For consular registration, such conditions must be met and the following documents must be presented:

A mark in the passport “Departure for permanent residence in Germany” (stamp) from the Ukrainian embassy. A valid passport of a Ukrainian citizen + a copy of such pages: Data of the applicant / applicant; Data on children; The presence of a stamp in the passport “Departure for permanent residence abroad” from the authorized Ukrainian department. A valid residence permit (if you already have an electronic residence permit, present a copy of both pages of the document) Clearly completed application; Clearly filled account card; Current certificate from the place of residence or certificate of stay (not older than 6 months); Copy of birth certificate; One photo 35 � 45 mm; The original receipt of payment of the consular fee certified by the bank; Envelope with stamp.

B. Consular registration in the embassy as a Ukrainian as a foreigner.

To apply for a “permanent residence” mark, the following conditions must be met again and the following documents must be submitted:

The filled application The certificate from the residence The valid passport of the passport 5 photos on the passport Birth certificate Notarized applications of the remaining parents and spouses in Ukraine about the residence permit abroad, with confirmation of the absence of unfulfilled obligations. If there are no such persons, evidence is to be provided as far as possible (judicial decisions, death certificates, statements about the missing person, etc.) If there are underage children in Ukraine, a notarial application from the parent is required on the absence of unfulfilled obligations and open child support obligations. If necessary – court decisions, death certificates, statements about the missing person, etc.). Certificates of birth of minor children. If you have worked for the past 10 years, you need confirmation from the employer about the absence of unfulfilled obligations. Notarized copy of the work book with all marks. Notarial application from children aged 14-18 on consent to reside abroad. (You can apply at the embassy.) A note by the Ukrainian Migration Service about leaving Ukraine for permanent residence abroad. Receipt for payment of consular fees. 2 envelopes with stamps.

A note on permanent residence abroad is put by the embassy if there are conditions and relevant documents.

A note on the permanent place of residence abroad when the conditions are fulfilled and the relevant documents are presented is put by the embassy. The state migration service of Ukraine on the territory of Ukraine gives a confirmation of the departure from Ukraine for permanent residence abroad. For this purpose, the internal passport is handed over to the service. According to the website of the Ukrainian embassy, this is possible in the embassy itself.

According to the embassy, this can be done at the embassy when registering a permanent place of residence. According to different information this process can last 6 months.

C. A note on the confirmation of departure from Ukraine for permanent residence abroad.

Registration in the embassy – as described above – is possible only if there is confirmation of departure from Ukraine for permanent residence abroad.

A confirmation of the departure from Ukraine for permanent residence abroad is given by the State Migration Service of Ukraine on the territory of Ukraine. For this purpose, the internal passport is handed over to the service.

The following documents are required if the procedure is carried out through third parties:

Power of Attorney (may be issued in Ukraine or in Germany with an apostille) Original of the internal passport Original passport of the passport Birth certificate Marriage certificate, if necessary with an apostille 6 photo 3,5�4,5 cm Copy of the internal passports of the parents Permission to leave the parents Copy of the spouse’s passport necessary, copies of foreign passports of children. Permit for stay. Certificate of birth of children, if necessary with apostille.

Depending on the biography and personal life circumstances, other documents may be required. At the end, the internal passport is handed over to the migration service and the exit to the permanent place of residence is confirmed, which is confirmed by the stamp in the passport.

According to the embassy, this can be done at the embassy when registering a permanent place of residence. According to different information this process can last 6 months.

So far, in our practice there has not been a single instance of such an actual registration through the embassy. Therefore, we recommend that the process of withdrawal be started from the Ukrainian State Migration Service in Ukraine and handed over its internal passport there.

Confirmation of the de-registration is not obtained from the embassy, as it is not known how this procedure takes place in practice, but directly in the Ukrainian migration service.

In these issues, we, both from the legal and organizational side, will be happy to help you. Based on the power of attorney, we can start the process much faster.

* The general procedure until the time of successful registration at the embassy and withdrawal from the account in Ukraine lasts, as a rule, about 1 year.

We can settle the process in 1-3 months. *

As with legal and organizational aspects, we will be happy to accompany you throughout the process of getting out of citizenship and taking citizenship.

That is, we can accompany you when applying for German citizenship before you leave Ukrainian citizenship either during the whole period or at certain stages, as it will be convenient for you.

Most of the necessary steps we can do for you on the basis of a power of attorney.
