The passport of a citizen of Ukraine is the main, although not the only, document that certifies the identity of a citizen and establishes his/her membership in the citizenship of Ukraine. Children after reaching the age of 14 can receive a passport of a citizen of Ukraine for the first time, as well as foreigners who have acquired citizenship of Ukraine and non-resident citizens of Ukraine who have completed the procedure of return from the PPR.


Passport of Ukraine 2022 is a plastic ID card, on the surface of which the following information is printed: last name, first name and patronymic of the passport holder with transliteration into Latin, date of birth, place of birth, date of issue and date of expiration of the passport, authority of issuance, the identification code of the taxpayer, as well as such a specific element as the UNZR number and a machine-readable tape. The UNZR number is a unique registration number in the State Demographic Register and is the same for all personal documents issued by the Demographic Register (currently for ID cards and foreign passports).
The ID card is not some separate specific document, the ID card is a full-fledged passport of a citizen of Ukraine in the sense of the law, only in a different appearance. The ID card contains the same information about a person as a paper passport and does not currently have any legal drawbacks in its use.


The passport of a citizen of Ukraine is issued for the first time only according to the regulatory procedure in 20 working days.
The legislation does not allow and does not provide for such a technical possibility to urgently obtain a passport at the age of 14.


According to the law, you can get the first passport of a citizen of Ukraine only at the place of registration. However, with the introduction of quarantine, this rule was changed and from now on, for the first time, you can receive a passport anywhere, regardless of residence. For example, if a child is registered in Kharkiv city, he/she can get a Ukrainian passport in Kyiv city. However, to confirm the place of registration, which will be entered in the passport, it will be necessary to provide a certificate of registration Form 13, which can be obtained only at the place of registration. If you are registered in the regions of Ukraine, but want to receive a passport in Kyiv, our lawyers will be happy to help you collect all the necessary documents and certificates.


Today, the passport of a citizen of Ukraine has a new model - ID card, however, passports of the old model still do not lose their legal force. The first passport cannot now be obtained in the form of a booklet, except in cases where a person receives a court decision, which provides for such a possibility. Although citizens cannot currently choose what type of passport to get - an ID card or a booklet, most people still ask questions about the advantages and disadvantages of the new passports.

In our subjective opinion, the following advantages of the ID card can be distinguished:

  • higher protection of ID card against forgeries;
  • the possibility to have an electronic passport in DIIA application;
  • the possibility of using many services that require authorization, which can be done using an ID card;
  • low wear and tear of the document, compared to a paper booklet;
  • the possibility of mobile verification of the validity of the document with the help of special conditions;
  • ease of restoring the document in case of its loss, theft or damage;
  • the possibility to enter an electronic digital signature in the ID card;
  • the presence of the tax number number on the ID card.

Disadvantages of the ID card

Of course, you can also find disadvantages of using ID cards, but in our opinion, they are less significant:

  • the small size of the document, which contributes to its frequent losses;
  • temporary inability to read the chip by any body or organization and, as a result, the need to obtain a separate document - a certificate of residence registration;
  • the ID card is valid for 4 years for persons under 18 or 10 years for all other persons. In this way, the ID card will need to be replaced with age more often than pasting photos into a paper passport;
  • higher cost of ID card.

The "ENWOLT" legal association lawyers remind you that you can get an ID card from the age of 14, so do not delay until you are 16 or even 18 years old, contact us, we will gladly advise you and help you prepare all the necessary documents.
