Implementation of the biometric border control

From January 1, 2018, a biometric data fixation system of foreigners and stateless persons has been launched on the 157 state border crossing points.

The main tasks of such system are the following:

  • to ensure the state security;
  • to improve the security component during the border crossing;
  • to strengthen the control over entry and exit from Ukraine of foreigners and stateless persons;
  • control over compliance with the rules of stay in the territory of our state.

To pass the state border, it is only necessary to fix 5 fingerprints from the right hand.

To create this system, 157 border crossing points and 3 checkpoints of entry-exit at the administrative border with the temporarily occupied territory of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea have been technically equipped.

For the efficient work more than 1200 employments have been created, more than 400 automated workplaces have been equipped with fingerprint scanners, modernized biometric data storage.
