We remind you that it is difficult to leave children (under the age of 16) abroad abroad.
In its resolution, the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine “On Amendments to the Rules for the Crossing of the State Border by Citizens of Ukraine” dated 19.10.2016 N 733 prohibited crossing the border for children under 16 years of age accompanied by one of the parents without a notarized consent of another parent without a mark passport document on acceptance for permanent consular registration.
Previously, for border crossing it was enough to note that there was a temporary consular registration, which in future could lead to a complaint about the legality of the departure.
Now, the new order is designed to prevent the illegal exportation of children by one parent without permission of another, will promote the protection of the rights of both children and the other parent.
Also, some changes to the current legislation are planned. Namely, the Committee of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine on Foreign Affairs recommended adopting in the first reading a draft law “On Amendments to Certain Legislative Acts on the Procedure for the Removal from Ukraine of People’s Deputies of Ukraine”. The document proposes to ban the departure from Ukraine of people’s deputies, regarding which in the Verkhovna Rada a submission to the Prosecutor General’s Office was filed for permission to prosecute, detain or arrest.
