Marriage with Ukrainian

The Ministry of Justice has launched a 24-hour marriage registration service in major Ukrainian cities. The Justice Minister acknowledged the success of the pilot speedy marriage centers and announced the expansion of this service across Ukraine. Originally, 1-day marriage registration was available in Kyiv, Odesa, Lviv, Kherson, Mariupol, and Severodonetsk. Starting in January 2017, the service expanded to Vinnytsia, Dnipro, Lutsk, Mykolayiv, Rivne, Kamyanets-Podilskyi, Zhytomyr, and Kharkiv.

Ukrainian and foreign citizens must file an application at least 30 days before their desired marriage registration date. The new law allows the registration process to be completed in 1 day instead of the usual 1 month. Foreign citizens follow the same registration procedure as Ukrainian citizens, with the additional requirement of translating and notarizing all documents in Ukrainian.

The list of documents:
