Electronic border crossing queue: how to use the eCherha application
The eTurn mobile application is now available for truck drivers. It allows you to sign up for an electronic queue. Learn more about how to download the app
The Ministry of Infrastructure announced the launch of the mobile app eCherha for truck drivers. Henceforth, they can cross the border faster through the "Yagodin-Dorogusk" checkpoint – international cargo carriers could sign up for an electronic queue using a smartphone.
"Ukraine is systematically working on the digitalization of the border crossing procedure. The unique free service allows drivers to plan their trips, therefore save time and money", - said Deputy Minister of Community Development, Territories and Infrastructure Anatoliy Komirny.
Who needs this application?
eCherha simplifies the crossing of the border with Poland at the Yagodin-Dorogusk checkpoint. Truck drivers could download the app and conveniently enroll in the electronic queue. Previously, it was possible to sign in to the online queue only on the website.
Once registered, the driver will receive important information:
• The number in a queue;
• Speed of queue;
• Time of arrival at the checkpoint.
The app also allows drivers to cancel their registration if necessary. Furthermore, it includes a messaging feature that enables drivers to communicate with the development team and stay up-to-date with the latest project updates.
Please note that truck drivers who register in the electronic queue are exempted from entering service areas. They independently decide where to wait for the border crossing.

How to download eCherha?
The application is available in the App Store and Google Play. It supports three languages: Ukrainian, Polish, and English.
To log in to the application, you need to use the login and password you use for authorization on the echerha.gov.ua website.
The application is available for Polish drivers
Since one of the languages supported by the app is Polish, Polish-speaking drivers register in the queue easily.
It’s worth mentioning that the electronic queue on the Polish-Ukrainian border was launched in December last year - since then, about 55 thousand trucks have used it.
