The rules for crossing the state border of Ukraine for foreigners and stateless persons have been changed

To enter Ukraine, foreign citizens and stateless persons will only need to present  a certificate of receipt of only one dose of coronavirus vaccine.

The Cabinet of Ministers has allowed foreigners and stateless persons who have an international COVID certificate of vaccination with one or more doses of WHO-approved vaccines or have recovered from COVID-19 not to isolate themselves after crossing the state border of Ukraine.

The relevant decision was made at a government meeting on August 18, 2021.

As before, foreign nationals and stateless persons can also enter Ukraine and not go into self-isolation if they have a negative COVID-19 PCR test or a negative coronavirus antigen test 3 days after crossing the state border.

As we reported earlier, on August 5, in accordance with the resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, the rules of crossing the border and entry-exit checkpoints have changed.
In particular, foreigners, except for certain categories, still need to have a COVID-19 insurance policy (certificate) for entry into Ukraine, valid for the entire period of stay in Ukraine, a negative PCR result or rapid testing. on COVID-19, which was held no more than 72 hours before crossing the state border.

Also, in order to avoid self-isolation from foreigners, a document was required confirming receipt of a full course of vaccination from COVID-19 with vaccines included in the WHO list of permitted.

However, we note that stricter rules on self-isolation continue to apply to all persons, regardless of nationality, who came from Russia or India and have been in these countries for more than 7 days in the last two weeks.


In particular, they have a mandatory 14-day self-isolation, which begins from the moment of crossing the state border without the right to its early completion.
