Ukraine has become the first country with an e-ID that is totally valid and can be used everywhere! Being an undoubtedly unique case, it is another success story for Ukraine to become a “paperless” country soon.

Earlier, in April 2020, Ukrainians’ e-ID cards appeared in Diia, a state-driven app to hold digital documents and provide e-services. More than 20 million of us can now use the app with no need to have a paper ID all the time. For example, within such common situations as getting bank services, receiving post, traveling or shopping wine in supermarkets.

Making digital versions of IDs is not a new story itself as for the international experience. Still, Ukraine takes the world lead to become the first one where digital IDs have the same “rights” as paper ones!
