Ukraine cities join marriage in 24 hours program

24 hour Marriage Service in Ukraine

February 3, 2017

The pilot program "Marriage in 24 hours" was launched in Ukraine on August 14th 2016.

The first cities to adopt the expedited marriage procedure were Kyiv, Lviv, Odessa, Mariupol and Severodonets'k. Shortly after Kherson joined the program on October 17th 2016.

The year 2017 brings an expansion of the program as the expedited marriage procedure is now available to residents in 14 additional Ukrainian cities.

"Marriage in 24 hours" service is now available in Mykolaiv, Dnipropetrovs'k, Kharkiv, Zhytomyr, Uzhhorod, Chernivtsi, Ternopil, Chernihiv, Sumy, Rivne, Lutsk, Ivano-Frankivs'k, Vinnytsia and Kamianets'-Podil's'kyi.

That brings the total number of cities that offer the expedited marriage registration in Ukraine to 20.

The cost of marriage registration within this program is higher than regular marriage registration. Expedited marriage registration is provided only at specified locations and is open to all citizens of Ukraine as well as for foreigners planning to marry in Ukraine.

I just got ingaged to a fabulous lady who lives in Kharko in Jan2018. Most of the information on this site seems to be at least 2 years old. What can be accomplished in the US before going to the Ukraine to save time. Thanks Bill

Hi Bunch. Congratulations on your engagement!
The information on the site is current, although the blog content has been neglected. One reason is that most of the changes happening in Ukraine are politically charged and we're not focused on that. You can find up-to-date information in the Info Center within your Premium Member's account. You mentioned Kharkiv, there's one additional 24hr marriage service provider located at Sums'ka Street, 39, room 207. More info here (UA language).
It's a good idea to begin researching/planning immigration requirements depending on where you wish to live together.
Also, if you are divorced, you will need to prepare your Divorce Decree while in United States before traveling to Ukraine.
Thanks and good luck.

For my Divorce paper work. Do I just need a court copy of the divorce? How much of the other paperwork can I do in the united states, I will only have a week to visit this time. The sooner we get married the sooner she can work on her Visa to the United States. We have both read that this can be a long process. Any suggestions would be a great help. Billy

Hi Bunch. You will be required to present a certified copy of your Divorce Decree or the Court Judgment annulling the marriage. The document should be Apostilled and have certified translation to Ukrainian language. Please check My Documents section for more information. Good luck.

If one wants to marry a ukranian lady, what is the best source to find someone ,like a dating website which is trusted or go through some agency which are trusted and can help someone really to get married and settle down.

Hi Bkhan,
According to our survey "What's the best way to meet Ukrainian women?", our online community decided that Online chat is the best place to meet Ukrainian women. Most foreigners interested in Ukrainian companionship will find that trust is elusive. Personally I recommend to calculate with your heart first and listen to your heart after.
See survey results as of April 28, 2018 below.

What's the best way to meet Ukrainian women?
51% - Online chat
21% - Friend/family introduction
18% - Travel to Kyiv and socialize
9% - Romance tours

Do you recommend any dating sites which does not cheat or any agency which is trusted because everything today you see is not true.

I regret no, we do not provide referrals for online dating services.Truth in online love has a high price. Good luck.

I see a 24 hour marriage service is this a good way to go for a foreigner to use. I only have 2 weeks of time off to do this.

Hello DR. Assuming that all your documents are in order, you should have enough time within two weeks to register your marriage using "marriage in 24hrs" service.  There's a background check involved and if there are any issues with the status of your stay, there's a chance that the process may take more than two weeks.
