Ukrainian citizenship by descent
Another option for getting Ukrainian citizenship is exploring your family history. Specifically, you may have the right to the citizenship of Ukraine if:
- one of your family members (father/mother, grandfather/grandmother, full-brother/full-sister, half-brother/half-sister, son/daughter, grandson/granddaughter) was born before August 24, 1991, on a territory, which later became part of Ukraine;
- one of your family members (father/mother, grandfather/grandmother, full-brother/full-sister, half-brother/half-sister, son/daughter, grandson/granddaughter) was permanently residing before August 24, 1991, on a territory, which later became part of Ukraine.
Though this method acquiring citizenship is often ignored by the citizenship seekers, the practice shows that if there is a tiniest connection between you or your kinsman and Ukraine, the chances of a successful application are notably high. Our experience shows that in many cases international students, who studied in Ukraine in the past, as well as the children of the Ukrainian emigrants often successfully use this ground for getting citizenship of Ukraine.
However, collecting pieces of evidence of this connection is often complicated and time-consuming. Various documents should be reclaimed from the municipal councils, government authorities and even clerical institutions. The critical task in this regard is to know where the research should start.
