AMENDED PROCEDURE OF CROSSING THE ADMINISTRATION LINE WITH OCCUPIED CRIMEA FOR CHILDREN UNDER 16 YEARS OLD WILL COME INTO FORCE ON FEBRUARY 9TH
Amendments to the Procedure of crossing the administrative line with temporarily occupied Crimea by children under 16 years old will come into force on February 9th.
On the eve of the New Year, the Government simplified the Procedure for entry/exit of persons from/to the territory of Crimean Peninsula of teenagers who study in other regions of Ukraine.
Children from 14 to 16 years old will be able to cross EECP independently if they have a Ukrainian passport (ID card) or International passport and have information about studying at the Unified State Electronic Database on Education, to which the employees of the State Border Guard Service at the EECP will have access.
It also simplifies the procedure for crossing the EECP with the Crimea for children under 16 years old. For them, entry into the Crimea (talking about those who left the Peninsula before and are now returning) will be possible accompanied by only one of their parents.
The State Border Service emphasizes that until February 19, 2020 the entry to the Crimea takes place exclusively accompanied by two parents or with the notarized consent of the other parent.
Recall that the Resolution was developed by the Ministry for Veterans Affairs, Temporarily Occupied Territories and Internally Displaced Persons of Ukraine in pursuance of Action Plan Objective 5.3 of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine.
The Ministry is constantly studying the issues faced by residents of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea when crossing the administration line. The Ministry for Veterans Affairs jointly with the Government consistently takes appropriate measures at the legislative level to facilitate the citizens of Ukraine from the Crimea in the processing of documents, receiving administrative, medical, educational and other services, as well as for their reintegration into the social, information and cultural space of Ukraine.
