Travel Alert: Ukraine


Authorities are maintaining measures imposed to combat the spread of COVID-19 as of July 9. To enter Ukraine, all nonresident foreign nationals must produce either a negative result from a COVID-19 PCR or rapid antigen test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival or a document confirming full vaccination with a WHO-approved vaccine.

Freight transporters and aircraft cabin crews are exempt from these testing requirements.

Officials are implementing mandatory COVID-19 testing on entry for arrivals from India, Portugal, Russia, and the UK as of July 2 due to concerns over the spread of the Delta variant of the virus. The measure applies to anyone who has been in these locations in the previous seven days and is in addition to current entry requirements.

Foreign arrivals require proof of travel insurance sufficient to cover the cost of COVID-19 observation and treatment. The policy must be issued by a company in Ukraine or an international insurance company with representation or a partnership in Ukraine. Foreigners and stateless persons who permanently reside in Ukraine, refugees, and diplomats are exempt from the requirement.
