The final tournament of the European Football Championship 2012 in Ukraine is over. The number of requests for legal assistance received by International Non-Governmental Organization “Legal Support of Foreigners in Ukraine” during the tournament is a strong indicator of the active development of the Organization.

During the European football championship the Organization has been contacted with requests for legal aid by 53 foreign citizens. The Organization’s professionals were mainly involved in giving advices and providing legal assistance regarding the application of Ukrainian legislation.  While most of the questions raised by foreign nationals in their requests concerned the rules for entry and stay, Ukrainian traffic laws and customs requirements at the state border, in some instances foreigners also enquired about their health care rights and foreign currency control in Ukraine.

 Legal Support of Foreigners in Ukraine actively continues to provide legal assistance to foreign nationals.
