Updates about COVID-19 and rules of entry to Ukraine

We have collected all information about rules for travellers and pandemic updates in Ukraine.

From March 24, 2021, all foreign citizens, without exception, regardless of the country of arrival to enter Ukraine must have:

  • A policy (certificate) of insurance issued by an insurance company registered in Ukraine or a foreign insurance company that has a representative office in Ukraine or a contractual relationship with an insurance company – a partner on the territory of Ukraine (assistance), and covers the costs related to the treatment of COVID-19, observation, and is valid for the entire period of stay in Ukraine.
  • As well as a negative result of testing for COVID-19 by a polymerase chain reaction that was done no more than 72 hours before crossing the state border. The test is not required for children under 12 years.

 

For foreign citizens, there is no possibility to do the PCR test in Ukraine or self-isolate. In the absence of a test and/or insurance policy the border crossing for entry or transit will be denied.

A person’s presence of a certificate of antibodies to COVID-19 or a vaccination certificate does not exempt him from the need to have the results of testing for COVID-19 by PCR before crossing the state border.

Citizens of Ukraine in order to cross the Ukrainian border must have a negative PCR test that was done a maximum of 72 hours before entry. In the absence of the test, the Ukrainian must install the application Vdoma and self-isolate for 14 days. It is possible to complete self-isolation ahead of time in case of a negative PCR test result.

The insurance policy, which was purchased through the portal, can be transferred for the required period for the tourist. The procedure for changing dates can be carried out several times.
