The reasons for moving to Ukraine for a Russian citizen can be very diverse. This may be a professional need, a desire to reunite with your family, or other motives. But what does it take to make a successful move?
You need to think about moving in advance. Discuss it with your next of kin - wife, husband, children. Take them to Ukraine if they haven't been there before. Keep in mind that the desire of one person is rarely enough to successfully move an entire family. But if you drive on your own, then some of the problems disappear. Any move requires money. Calculate and accumulate the required amount in advance. It can be funds for renting housing and paying the necessary expenses for the first time. Choose a place in Ukraine where you would like to live. In the event that you go to work for a specific company, it will be easier for you, since the place of residence has already been determined for you. But, nevertheless, the question of housing remains. Its cost in Ukraine, as well as in Russia, depends on the location. In Kiev, you will encounter maximum prices, while in the provinces they will, of course, be lower. If you already have housing in a large Russian city, then most likely, when selling it, you will have enough money to buy an apartment even in the Ukrainian capital. In Ukraine, there is also the possibility of obtaining a mortgage, including for foreign citizens. You will need a long-stay visa for Ukraine. To obtain a work visa, you will need to provide a contract signed by you and your employer. Those moving for family reasons will be asked to confirm their relationship with citizens or residents of Ukraine. It is better to stock up on tickets for transport to Ukraine after obtaining a visa. In this case, you will know which date to choose in accordance with the visa of a foreign country. Finally, you will need to organize the transportation of things if you move to Ukraine permanently. The easiest way is to order a railway container for the delivery of bulky cargo, for example, furniture. Small and valuable things can be taken with you on a trip as carry-on luggage.
