Residence registration in a new way

Haven’t we got used to new rules for registration of rights to real estate, the President signed a new law changing the procedure of residence registration.

As we know, currently the territorial subdivisions of the State Migration Service of Ukraine have been empowered to register a place of one’s residence for several years. However, from April 2016 one shall have to apply to the local governments for services of residence registration or its cancellation. It is expected that by May in the local councils special units, responsible precisely for this type of service, will operate. All documents, respectively, should be submitted to them.

We’d like to remind that the residence registration in Ukraine is compulsory, and its absence for more than 10 days entails administrative liability in the form of a fine.
