Ukraine to introduce a preliminary verification of the grounds for entry into its territory


The President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko signed a decree enacting the National Security and Defense Council Resolution dated 1 March 2018 “On Urgent Measures to Neutralize Threats to National Security in the Field of Migration Policy,” the president's press-service said.

Under the decree, the Government of Ukraine is entrusted within one month to develop and submit for the Parliament’s consideration several bills, including amendments to the laws “On Legal Status of Foreigners and Stateless Persons” and “On Border Control,” which would introduce in respect of foreign citizens, primarily Russian, stateless persons and citizens, from the migration-risk countries, a mechanism for preliminary checks of the grounds for entering Ukraine via electronic notification of intention to visit Ukraine; and to decide which government agencies shall have powers to carry out such checks.
