Ministry of Justice launched a 24-hour marriage registration service in major Ukrainian cities. The Justice Minister admitted that the pilot speedy marriage centers have proven to be a success, and now this service will be spread all over Ukraine. 1-day marriage registration was initially available in Kyiv, Oddesa, Lviv, Kherson, Mariupol, and Severodonetsk. Starting from January 2017, service also be used in Vinnytsya, Dnipro, Lutsk, Mykolayiv, Rivne, Kamyanets-Podil’Skyy, Zhytomyr, and Kharkiv.

The set of documents for foreign citizens is almost the same as before, except that all documents must be translated into Ukrainian and notarized.
