An electronic document is an analog of a paper ID
The government approved the decree on the electronic passport in the state’s application “Diya”. From now on, passports in a smartphone are officially digital analogue of paper documents, Digital Transformation Report.
According to the Ministry of Information, now electronic passports are at the level of testing, in which 17 thousand people participate. In the near future, the agency promises to make e-passports available to every Ukrainian in the Dia application.

On completion of quarantine, e-passport can be used:
- While traveling in trains and flights
