The action of the electronic system “Electronic Border Crossing Queue” (“eCheck”) will be extended to buses carrying out international passenger transportation and passenger cars.
As the representative of the Cabinet of Ministers in the Parliament Taras Melnychuk reported in a telegram channel, the government introduced the relevant amendments to the Resolution No. 1349 on the peculiarities of the implementation of the electronic system “e Queue” at the meeting on Friday.
The State Service of Ukraine for Transport Security (“Ukrtransbezopasnost”) specified that from August 1, the electronic queue for passenger carriers starts operating in a test mode at the Yahodyn-Dorogusk BCP.
“From Tuesday, August 1, the movement of buses of regular flights through the IACP “Yagodin – Dorogusk” will be possible only by entry in the Electronic queue of border crossing on the site”, – stated in the message of the Department in the telegram channel.
It is noted that the record in the “e Queue” for passenger carriers opens on July 31.
The agency specified that the bus driver can extend the queue once in 4, 6, 8 or 10 hours, if he needed more time on the road. At the same time, the data on the driver or vehicle can be changed once without losing a place in the queue.
In “Ukrtransbezopasnost” added that the schedule of buses will remain unchanged. Registered carriers should arrive at the checkpoint at the time stipulated by the bus route.
In the test period, the System will not offer entry times at the checkpoint for buses.
As reported, the Electronic Border Crossing Queue project is implemented by the Ministry of Community Development, Territories and Infrastructure in cooperation with the Ministry of Digital Transformation, Ukrtransbezopasnost, State Agency for Infrastructure Rehabilitation and Development, State Customs Service and State Border Guard Service with the support of USAID/UK aid of the Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services/TAPAS project.
