Issuance of identity documents for Ukrainians abroad is carried out by diplomatic missions of Ukraine (embassies and consulates). Foreign passports are issued only in Ukraine. Accordingly, the production of passports and the delivery of already produced passports have been suspended.


WHAT TO DO IF YOU LEFT UKRAINE WITHOUT A VALID PASSPORT?


If you arrived abroad from Ukraine after 24.02 due to the war and do not have a valid passport (for example, you arrived with an expired passport, or with a passport of a citizen of Ukraine / "domestic" passport, or, in the case of child with a child's birth certificate):


- If your passport or the child's passport has expired, you can extend the validity of this passport.

- If you have a valid passport and your child has only a birth certificate, you can enter the child's data in your passport ("enter the child" in the passport)

- If you have only a passport of a citizen of Ukraine / "internal" passport, you can obtain a certificate of identity with a photo. A similar document can be issued to your child, who has only a birth certificate.


All these actions are free of charge on the day of applying to the Embassy.


PLEASE NOTE: The Embassy does not have any authority to mark EU border crossing in any documents or to issue any certificates about border crossing - this can only be done by the border services of the countries through which you entered the EU. If you plan to cross the border, we strongly advise you to make sure that border guards have stamped the border crossing in your passport (foreign, "domestic" or on the child's birth certificate), or get a certificate of border crossing from them.


EXTENSION OF A FOREIGN PASSPORT


Renewal of a foreign passport is possible not earlier than 3 months before its expiration date.

To extend the validity of an adult's passport, the applicant submits the following documents at the reception:

  • - Application (received and filled in at the reception)
  • - Applicant's foreign passport
  • - Passport of the citizen of Ukraine of the applicant (if available)


To extend the validity of a child's passport, one of the child's parents submits the following documents at the reception, in the original:

  • - Application (received and filled in at the reception)
  • - Child's passport
  • - Applicant's passport (parent who submits documents)
  • - Child's birth certificate


ENTRY OF INFORMATION ABOUT THE CHILD IN THE PASSPORT OF ONE OF THE PARENTS

To enter information about a child into a parent`s passport, one of his / her parents submits the following documents, in the original:

  • - Application (received and filled in at the reception)
  • - Your passport
  • - Two color photos of a child measuring 3.5 x 4.5 cm
  • - Child's birth certificate.

PLEASE NOTE! If the birth certificate was not issued in Ukraine, it is submitted duly certified and translated into Ukrainian (more detailed requirements for such a certificate are described in the section "Consular issues" - "Issuance of a passport of a citizen of Ukraine for travel abroad" - "Issuance of a passport for children" on the website of the relevant Embassy of Ukraine in the host country).


IDENTITY CERTIFICATE 

If you left Ukraine after February 24 without a foreign passport, with the passport of a citizen of Ukraine ("domestic" passport), you can get a certificate from the Embassy to confirm your identity with your data and photo. Such a document can also be issued to minor children who have left Ukraine with a birth certificate if their parents do not have foreign passports (ie it is impossible to enter data on the child as mentioned above).
