Parents who do not agree with the departure of their children abroad will now be able to indicate specific dates of the ban, as well as a list of countries where the child is not allowed to travel. New procedure for filing applications for the export of children approved Ministry of Internal Affairs.
Also, a parent who disagrees with the child’s departure abroad can indicate whether he or she prohibits the departure until they reach the age of 18.
In addition, it is now possible to lift the ban on the child’s departure not through the courts, as before, but simply by filing a statement with the police.
The last time the rules for children traveling abroad were changed was in 2019. Then, in the absence of a ban on leaving, children were allowed to leave the country with one of the parents without the consent of the other.
The changes also affected the accounting of applications. For example, if a citizen is unable to sign, the recipient of the application can mark this when certifying the signature. “If the applicant is unable to sign the application on his own due to a physical disability, the official authorized to accept applications puts a dash in the column of the application intended for the applicant’s signature, indicating the relevant reasons,” the ministry said.
