    During the implementation of the pilot project on e-booking of permits for international road transportation of passengers and goods, which started at the beginning of last year, Ukrainian carriers made about 975,000 bookings in electronic form through the Transport e-Services Portal. This was announced by the Minister of Infrastructure Vladyslav Kryklii.

    "Early last year, in cooperation with Ukrtransbezpeka, we launched a pilot project on e-booking permits for carriers through the Transport Portal of electronic services. Since then, about 975 electronic bookings have been made in a new format that is convenient and accessible for our carriers. In order to regulate the procedure for ordering e-forms of transportation permits, together with the community of carriers we have developed and made appropriate changes to the Procedure for registration and issuance of permits for international road transportation of passengers and goods (MIU order №116 from 17.03.2021)", said the Minister.

    According to him, the changes to the Procedure also provide for the following:

    • repeal of the rule on the obligation to return permit forms within 90 days;
    • the possibility of issuing permits on copies of documents in case of withdrawal of the issued permit by the competent authority of a foreign country, theft, loss or expiration of the permit when the vehicle is visiting a foreign state;
    • introduction of the form of refusal which will be provided by the inspector to the carrier in case of discrepancy of the presented documents or absence of permissions in point of issue of permits, and also the form of refusal which will be given in case of refusal in cancellation of permits;
    • updating the list of permits and countries that have limited annual quotas, and now these restrictions are as flexible as possible, thereby allowing for more efficient planning of transportation logistics;
    • changes in the permit form of Ukraine;
    • imposing sanctions on carriers that will abuse the pre-order of e-permit forms.
