The Reason We Started This Website
Like most things worthwhile in life, there is a process to follow with tedious and time-consuming paperwork.
We identified flaws in many of these complex processes for migrating to Ukraine, losing luggage at the airport (not lost, but that’s another story), conducting business, recruiting developers and programmers, and starting companies. We also have real-world experience obtaining work permits, tax ID numbers, long-term visa D, temporary residence multiple times, and many other cultural mishaps that led to this website’s creation.
Information on each web page provides first-hand knowledge and experience of the complexities of going to Ukraine, living here, and even marrying s Ukrainian citizen (that’s another story and undoubtedly real life-changing).

Message From The Website Founder
I can help you navigate along your path while in Ukraine.
Objective: help you obtain a Visa D, temporary residence, and permanent residence in Ukraine.
I have been through the process multiple times for multiple reasons and goals.
Work with and organization who knows what it takes to achieve goals and obtain expected outcomes.
You most certainly can complete the paperwork yourself.
It’s not advisable to do the paperwork yourself.
Hiring an attorney in Ukraine who knows how to navigate the paperwork is the best solution.
Please take my advice on this, or don’t, it’s your choice.
I’ve obtained work permits, tax IDs, bank accounts, Visa D, Private Entrepreneur (PE) registration, Limited Liability (LLC) registration, and three temporary residence permits in September 2019, August 2020, July 2021.
Pro Tip: It’s better to renew your residence permit after ten months to ensure you stay within the laws and times frames set forth by the State Migration Service of Ukraine.
Commitment to you

Planning a trip to Ukraine requires information, and we can be your best data source to assist your planning stage.

Next is to get your business up and running; after the legal paperwork is complete, everything signed and stamped by the Ukrainian government, you’ll need website engineers to grow your business.
We will handle all of those tasks for you and function as your digital marketing department; everything from coding, programming, web development, automation algorithms, literally everything related to a website, and growing a business online; we specialize in detailed and immersive technical SEO audits.
