The Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine passed this law on November 20, taking into account proposals made by the president. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych signed the law on November 29.

This law lays down the procedure for issuing a large number of documents that will be used on the territory of Ukraine. According to the law, these documents are issued on the basis of the unified state demographic register, which certifies one’s identity, along with driver’s licenses, the certificate of a stateless person, a permanent residence certificate, a temporary residence certificate, a migrant’s card, and a refugee certificate.

The document foresees the introduction of electronic passports containing electronic chips with biometric information for traveling abroad, according to the standards of the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO).
