Ukraine foreign visitors to have biometrics collected
In an effort to tighten control of the Ukrainian state border crossing, the country’s National Security and Defense Council is considering collecting biometrics of foreign visitors.
According to a report in the Kyiv Post, President Petro Poroshenko said, “This is about tightening controls over the entry to, exit from and stay in Ukrainian territory of citizens of other countries: we are introducing biometrics control procedures for all individuals crossing the Ukrainian border.
“We must collect biometrics, including fingerprints and a digital photograph. This will considerably boost opportunities in terms of the fight against terrorism.”
