Launch of public services portal Diia designed using EGOV4Ukraine funds

27 public online services are already available on the government portal Diia, in particular, registering a sole proprietorship, filing changes in constitutional documents, changing the area of activity and closing a sole proprietorship, procuring a statement of the absence of criminal record, applying for a childbirth benefit or monthly reimbursement of childcare services for children under three years of age. You can file a lawsuit, register a motor vehicle or receive driver’s license-related services, apply for a number of licenses and permits, and receive abstracts from public registers.

“In the past, the overwhelming majority of these services were scattered over various portals, so finding them was quite problematic. Moreover, applying for these services was a quite complex process that required specific knowledge or outside assistance. Therefore, we simplified the process of receiving services, made it as comprehensible as possible for all, and brought all services together on the Unified Government Web Portal of Electronic Services,” Mykhailo Fedorov, Minister of Digital Transformation, said. 

On this portal, you can also check your personal information filed in five public registers; to do that, you have to sign up from your account on Diia portal. This information is filed in the following databases:

  • Unified State Register of Legal Entities, Sole Proprietorships and Civic Formations;
  • State Register of Proprietary Rights to Immovable Property;
  • the Interior Ministry’s Unified State Register of Registered Motor Vehicles and Vehicle Owners;
  • State Land Cadaster;
  • State Register of Movable Property Encumbrances.

Presently, documents shown in Diia mobile app are available from the user’s account: motor vehicle registration certificate and driver’s license. A digital passport of the Ukrainian citizen in the form of ID card and a biometric Ukrainian international passport will become available soon. The portal will also offer the child’s residence address registration service, construction-related, social security and company registration services.

To receive services on Diia portal, an applicant must have an electronic signature; authorization can also be done using id.gov.ua service.

The beta-testing of Diia portal continued from 24 February to 30 March 2020. During this time, over 800 accounts were created, 26 sole proprietorships were opened, 17 were closed, and 87 users filed changes.

This portal was wholly created with funding provided by international donors and partners: USAID/Ukaid project “Transparency and Accountability in Public Administration and Services” (TAPAS), EGAP program funded by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation and implemented by East Europe Foundation and Innovabridge, USAID’s Project of Supporting Leading Organizations in Combating Corruption in Ukraine “VzaiemoDiia”, and EGOV4UKRAINE project of U-LEAD with Europe Program.
