Properly completed documents are the key to a quick border crossing

Border guards of the Chop detachment once again draw the attention of travellers to the rules of crossing the state border, including those during the transportation of organized groups of children for vacation or rehabilitation. Because, despite the informational campaign in the media, not all of our fellow citizens are able to quickly and easily cross the border to neighboring countries, and sometimes even more - they are forced to end their journey at the border.     

The main reason for denials in admission is absence of letters of trust from parents which are required in cases where a child is accompanied by only one of the parents or by a person authorized by them. Other reasons are absence of the photo of a child (under 5 years old!) in the documents of parents, invalid documents for travel abroad or absence thereof altogether, expired passport or technical malfunction of the passport.

That is why border guards ask citizens to thoroughly prepare for voyages abroad and remind of the need for proper documentation. In order to meet the latter, citizens of Ukraine shall be governed by the following legal acts:

Law of Ukraine "On the procedure for exit from Ukraine and entry to Ukraine for citizens of Ukraine."

Order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dd. January 27, 1995 № 57 "On approval of rules of crossing the border by citizens of Ukraine."

Order of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine dd. December 21, 2005 № 1251 "On the procedure of transportation of children abroad for vacation and rehabilitation."

Additional information is available on the website of the border agency, or by phone: (044) 527-63-63.

Also, to avoid queues of vehicles at checkpoints, to reduce the time for passing the border control of organized tourist groups in automobile checkpoints "Uzhgorod", "Chop (Tisa)", we recommend to provide the following information at the email address of Chop border guard detachment: chop_ [email protected]:

- Registration number of the vehicle;

- Passenger list with names, series and number of passports of the travelers;

- The date and approximate time of crossing the state border.

Also, we remind you that in connection with the planned reconstruction of the checkpoint "Mali Selmentsi - Velyki Selmentsi", the work of this checkpoint will be temporarily suspended from 28 of April to 30 of May 2014.
