Ukraine: dual citizens may be refused exit from Ukraine

As reported by the media with reference to the spokesperson of the State Border Service of Ukraine Andriy Demchenko, male citizens of Ukraine aged from 18 to 60 who also have another citizenship and reside abroad will not be allowed to leave Ukraine in accordance with the restrictions on exit currently enacted due to the state of martial law. Previously, an exception was made in practice for this category of persons.

We would like to note that the same information is published on the website of the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv. According to its sources, the restriction on exit for the mentioned category of dual citizens has been implemented as of June 1st, and this restriction extends as well to Ukrainians, who have U.S. citizenship.

NB! Dual citizens falling under the restriction, who reside abroad and consider returning to the territory of Ukraine, should mind a high risk of the subsequent denial of exit.
