Ukraine Residence by Investment

Stephane Tajick

Last updated: March 21, 2019

Ukraine Residence by Investment

Ukraine has had a residence by investment program for a while now, enabling business investors to gain temporary residence in Ukraine. The country is still in conflict at its Russian border, but capital Kiev is safe and offers many of the advantages of a modern European city. Ukraine is not part of the EU. Talks were held in the past which divided the country politically. Naturalization into Ukrainian citizenship is possible after 5 years of residence. The Ukraine passport enables visa-free travel to the EU for 90 days in a 180-day period.
