Banks are able to identify and verify individual's identity with an international passport

Banks are able to identify and verify individual's identity (resident in Ukraine) on the basis of passport of the citizen of Ukraine for departure abroad - an international passport.

In such a case, the name of person's patronymic may be established by the banks on the basis of other official documents containing the relevant information. For example, a document proving the taxpayer's registration card number of Ukraine (or the assignment of an identification number according to the State Register of physical persons of Ukraine - taxpayers and other obligatory payments).

Such clarification, in line with the legal norms, was provided by the National Bank of Ukraine on numerous requests from banks.
