Foreign nationals, online and without the need to visit Ukraine, will be able to get a Ukrainian qualified electronic signature, registration number of a taxpayer card, the opportunity to open an online account in a Ukrainian bank, and simplified access to Ukraine&#39;s administrative services," the minister said. Fedorov added that the first e-residents might be foreign IT specialists working for Ukrainian companies, as well as specialists from the Asia-Pacific region and neighboring countries, whose e-resident status will help Ukraine to cooperate effectively on the European market. At the same time, the minister stressed that all e-residents will be thoroughly inspected in Ukraine by law enforcement and financial authorities, as well as the Digital Transformation Ministry. In the near future, the latter, jointly with other government agencies, will develop a regulatory framework for launching the project. An e-residency portal is expected to start operating by the end of the year.
