On May 18, a new law on mobilization came into force, including updated rules on military registration for persons (men and women liable for military service) abroad. On May 16, the Cabinet of Ministers adopted a resolution regulating the procedure. From now on, the rules of military registration for men and women liable for military service abroad are the same as those applicable to such persons in Ukraine.

Deregistration when traveling abroad: what has changed?


According to the old rules, when leaving Ukraine for permanent residence for more than 3 months, conscripts, persons liable for military service and reservists had to personally apply to the military registration and enlistment office with documents confirming their departure abroad in order to be deregistered. 


However, this provision is no longer in the law. This means that under the new rules, such persons are not removed (excluded) from military registration when traveling abroad. And those citizens who have previously undergone this procedure and are not currently registered are obliged to register for military service within 30 days from the date of entry into force of the Cabinet of Ministers' Resolution No. 563 of May 16, 2024, by personally coming to the district (city) military registration and enlistment offices, the Security Service of Ukraine, or the relevant units of the intelligence agencies of their choice.


Thus, it is necessary to come to Ukraine and fulfill the requirement by June 16, 2024.
