Check the rules for the departure of men from Ukraine during the war

Check who, despite martial law, can leave Ukraine and who does not have such a possibility. 

Regarding the current martial law on the territory of Ukraine, not every man can leave the borders. According to the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Ukraine’s announcement, for the duration of statutory martial law, departure outside the borders is, in principle, restricted to men – citizens of Ukraine, at the age of 18 to 60. 

Exceptions can be made only for people specified in legislation. These are individuals with proof of postponed draft, notification about qualifying for special military registration, or military-medical board’s statement about unsuitability. 

These premises apply to those:

-supporting three or more children under the age of 18,

-single-parenting a child under the age of 18 or supporting a child with disabilities,

-adoptive parents or guardians for those whose close family died or went missing during anti-terrorist operations.
