Ukraine will begin issuing biometric visas to foreigners

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky has signed a law that provides for the provision of biometric data by foreigners applying for a Ukrainian visa. This was reported on the website of the President’s Office.

The document aims to improve visa procedures and introduce biometric Ukrainian visas for foreigners and stateless persons.

In particular, according to the law, foreigners and stateless persons are obligated to submit their biometric data during the visa application in accordance with the procedure established by the Cabinet of Ministers, unless otherwise provided by law.

Failure of a foreigner to submit their biometric data is defined as an additional ground for denying them a Ukrainian visa.

The law is adopted a day after its publication and enters into force 6 months after it is adopted.
