Government gives ‘green light’ to e-residency in Ukraine - Digital Transformation Ministry

The government has supported the introduction of e-residency in Ukraine, according to Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Digital Transformation Mykhailo Fedorov.

"The government has given the green light to e-residency! I told you about this project back in September. And we work on its implementation every day," he wrote on his Telegram channel.

Fedorov stressed that the project "can make Ukraine a powerful Eastern European IT hub."

According to the minister, without the need to visit Ukraine and fill out papers, foreigners will receive online: a Ukrainian qualified electronic signature, registration number of the taxpayer record card, the opportunity to open an online account in a Ukrainian bank and simplified access to administrative services in Ukraine.

"We are creating this project for representatives of the creative industry - IT, marketing, advertising, and gaming. We see foreign IT specialists working for Ukrainian companies as the first e-residents, as well as specialists from the Asia-Pacific region and near abroad countries, for whom the status of e-resident of Ukraine will help to cooperate effectively in the European market,” he explained.
