The Rada passed a law yesterday equating digital ‘e-passports’ with conventional paper passports for use inside Ukraine.

Wednesday, March 31, 2021

Part of the government’s ‘state in a smartphone’ program, e-passports are displayed by the increasingly popular Diya app. The passports are issued with a unique electronic identifier, such as a QR code or bar code. “All e-passports can be used within Ukraine’s borders for their holders’ identification, confirmation of citizenship and provision of government and other services,” reported UNIAN. The law goes into effect August 23, 2021. So far, Ukraine’s e-passports are not accepted for foreign travel.
