  • Government’s task is to ensure comfortable return of Ukrainians to their homeland

    Chaired by Deputy Prime Minister – Minister for Reintegration of the Temporarily Occupied Territories of Ukraine Iryna Vereshchuk, a meeting of the Coordination Headquarters for ensuring departure of Ukrainian citizens from the temporarily occupied territories of Ukraine through the territory of third countries to Ukraine was held.

    One of the main issues on the agenda was the support of the draft law No. 9069 in the Parliament. It proposes the introduction of an out-of-court (administrative) procedure for the state registration of civil status acts performed in the temporarily occupied territories. The Verkhovna Rada Committee on Legal Policy has set up a working group to examine the draft law.

    The issue of obtaining the first passport of a Ukrainian citizen in the form of an ID card by young people currently living abroad was also discussed at the meeting. First of all, the procedure for remote identification of the person who is to receive the document should be established. The mechanism for such identification is currently being developed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the State Migration Service.

    The State Migration Service reported on the status of the opening of mobile and stationary offices in European countries and Turkey. At present, separate subdivisions of the State Enterprise “Document” provide services to Ukrainians in the following countries: Turkey (Istanbul), Czech Republic (Prague), Slovakia (Bratislava), Poland (Warsaw, Gdańsk, Kraków, Wrocław), Germany (Berlin, Cologne) and Spain (Valencia, Madrid). In the future, it is planned to open subdivisions of SE “Document” in Italy and the United Kingdom.

    In total, over 325,000 documents for Ukrainian citizens have been issued during the operation of the subdivisions.
