It is worth noting that the receipt and issuance of documents is still carried out in accordance with the "live queue" procedure.


The Passport Service emphasized that the foreign departments are working on priority areas to ensure timely and transparent service delivery and provide quality service to Ukrainian citizens.


Registration in the electronic queue is free of charge and available on the official website of the State Enterprise "Document".


As you know, the new law on mobilization contains a provision according to which Ukrainian men who are abroad must update their data at Ukrainian missions or through an electronic cabinet within 60 days.


Importantly, the law does not provide for any obligation to return to Ukraine after this period.


Due to the growing demand for passports abroad, the Passport Service Center has decided to amend the rules for obtaining documents.

 The updated law on mobilization also proposes changes to the rules for obtaining a passport abroad for men. Read how the new rules will affect the process of obtaining consular services and whether men face deportation from abroad in our previous article.
