The government has made changes to the rules for crossing the state border by citizens of Ukraine. The corresponding decision was made at a Cabinet meeting on Wednesday, July 4.
Thus, the Cabinet of Ministers supported amendments to the government decree regarding the rules of border crossing for children.
In particular, it is proposed to add to the existing regulations on border crossing rules that the child’s travel document is valid for the period for which it was issued.
In addition, the Cabinet of Ministers allowed crew members to accompany minor children.
“Departure from Ukraine of citizens under the age of 16 is carried out only with the consent of both parents (adoptive parents), adoptive parents, guardians (trustees) and accompanied or accompanied by persons authorized by them who at the time of departure from Ukraine reached 18 years of age, including accompanied by members of the crew of the aircraft on which they are sent, ”the document says.
Also, the departure from Ukraine of persons under 16 years of age, accompanied by one of the parents or other persons authorized by one of the parents by notarized consent, is carried out without the notarized consent of the second parent in case of presentation of documents or their notarized copies.
By decision of the Cabinet of Ministers, such a document may be a child’s birth certificate issued by a competent authority of a foreign state that does not contain information about the child’s father legalized or certified by an apostille, as well as without any additional certificate in cases stipulated by the international treaty of Ukraine.
The development of the relevant changes is due to the need to implement the requirements of Article 32 of the Law of Ukraine “On the Protection of Childhood” regarding the adoption by the state of measures to combat illegal movement, export and non-return from abroad, abduction, trafficking and smuggling of orphans and children deprived of parental care.
