Foreigners and stateless persons who have invested over $100,000 in enterprises established by them in Ukraine will have the opportunity to apply for an immigration permit in Ukraine.
The relevant resolution was adopted by the Cabinet of Ministers at a meeting on Wednesday without discussion, an Interfax-Ukraine correspondent said.
According to the draft document posted on the government’s website, such investments must be confirmed by a certificate from the bank on the receipt of such an amount to the immigrant’s investment account and its use for foreign investment in the Ukrainian economy. Or a bank certificate on the transfer of such an amount to the current account of the enterprise from the personal foreign account of the immigrant.
In turn, the State Migration Service of Ukraine, in accordance with the document, checks in the bank before making a decision whether these investments have not been returned.
In addition, the government has included persons who have served in the Armed Forces for more than three years in the list of those who are subject to immigration quota and who are eligible to apply for Ukrainian citizenship.
