On April 24, the Government adopted new amounts of the cost of administrative services when issuing a passport of a citizen of Ukraine (ID-card) and passport of a citizen of Ukraine for traveling abroad, which will be paid after July 1. The cost of the forms of the mentioned documents also changes.
The cost of issuing documents for the first time has increased since 2016 and according to expert estimates such an increase will increase revenues to local budgets in 2019 by about 200 million UAH, which will be directed, in particular, to the implementation of local programs.
