Poroshenko signs law on IDs required for visa-free regime with EU
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko has signed law No.1474-VIII on amendments to some legislative acts of Ukraine concerning the documents proving a person's citizenship of Ukraine, identity or special status, which is required for the liberalisation of the visa regime for Ukraine by the EU, the president's press service reported on Wednesday.
The law was passed by the Verkhovna Rada on July 14.
This law specifies the list of identification documents which prove a person's citizenship of Ukraine or special status and determine the legal status of certain categories of people.
In addition, this document amends the law of Ukraine on the Unified State Demographic Registry and documents proving citizenship of Ukraine, person's identity or their special status, the law on state registration of documents certifying civil status and the law on a procedure of exit from Ukraine and entry to Ukraine by Ukrainian citizens.
The implementation of this law will remove legal gaps in the legislation and bring the law on the Unified State Demographic Registry and proof of citizenship of Ukraine in line with current legislation.
