Ukraine moving towards “digital visa-free travel” with the European Union


Ukraine takes an aim to digitize all public services and to switch to a paperless economy. This is the best way to overcome bureaucracy, domestic corruption and abuse. This was stated by Prime Minister Denys Shmyhal during a Government meeting on September 22.

Thus, the Cabinet of Ministers approved 4 draft laws on electronic identification and electronic trust services, which are designed, in particular, to ensure Ukraine’s accession to the EU Digital Single Market.


In practice, this is the absence of barriers to e-commerce between Ukraine and the EU or the ability to use electronic digital signatures in foreign economic activity. All this will speed up the development and use of technologies CardID, BankID, MobileID.
