The rules for crossing the border for men accompanying people with disabilities have changed
The changes were approved by the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dated September 10, 2022 No. 1044
According to the decree, men who accompany people with disabilities can now travel abroad an unlimited number of times. This is reported on the website of the State Border Service.
The document defines the procedure for traveling abroad during martial law for persons with disabilities who need constant care, children with disabilities, or a specific list of diseases accompanying the above categories of people, the State Border Service said.
For accompanying male citizens of Ukraine aged 18 to 60, the number of border crossings to leave Ukraine is no longer limited. Previously, it was allowed only once at the time of martial law.
Men can now travel abroad to people with disabilities who need constant care, children with disabilities, or a specific list of diseases they care for if these persons (children) are on consular records. At the same time, the State Border Service said that Ukrainian citizens subject to conscription during mobilization must return from abroad no later than the persons they accompanied.
It is also worth considering that other documents are defined for different categories of persons, confirming the degree of kinship or the facts of care.
To avoid refusals to pass, we recommend that persons planning to cross the border, before arriving at the checkpoints, carefully familiarize themselves with the requirements of the Border Crossing Rules and have all the required documents. This is especially true for accompanying male citizens of Ukraine aged 18 to 60, summed up in the State Border Service.
