Normative framework for the issue of legal border crossing
According to Article 23 of the Law of Ukraine “On Mobilization Training and Mobilization”, not every conscript who received the possibility of postponement of mobilization has the right to cross the state border without hindrance. An important condition is the presence of sufficient grounds for crossing the state border. In other words, according to current Ukrainian legislation, receiving a deferment is not a guarantee of the possibility of leaving Ukraine.
Separate rules and conditions for crossing the state border are established for conscripts. In the vast majority, these special conditions apply to those who accompany people with special needs: disabled persons of the I/II group (wife, children, parents) or are their official guardians.
There are also certain peculiarities associated with the independent crossing of the state border by men. For this, you need to collect a whole package of notarized documents.
List of the most common reasons for refusal to cross the border
Even if you have all the legal grounds for crossing the border and have collected all the necessary documents, you may be refused entry outside of Ukraine.
This is due to the fact that the final decision is made by the employees of the State Border Service at the relevant checkpoints. After passing such stages as:
- Identification of the person.
- Verification of collected documents.
- Checking the grounds for crossing the border, the representative of the State Customs Service makes the appropriate decision.
If a state employee does not allow crossing the border, there must be all the reasons for this, that is, he must justify his decision. There are certain requirements for issuing a refusal to cross the border. First of all, it must be in writing.
If necessary, Prykhodko and Partners lawyers will be able to challenge the actions of representatives of the State Border Service.
