Requirements for men to draw up documents abroad


According to the Cabinet of Ministers, Ukrainians abroad can apply for a passport of a citizen of Ukraine and a foreign passport. However, for men aged 18 to 60, military registration documents are required.

At the same time, this category of persons does not need a military registration document if:

— the person intends to obtain an identity document for returning to Ukraine (the so-called "white passport");
— the consular action is performed in the interests of a child whose second parent is a foreigner or stateless person;
— an arrested or imprisoned applicant applies for consular services.

In what cases Ukrainians need to be registered with the consulate, read this article.

We remind you! The deadline for updating military registration data expires in less than two weeks. Read this article to learn everything you need to know for Ukrainians who have not yet updated their data.
