Ukraine simplifies border crossing for foreigners

A Cabinet of Ministers resolution that allows foreigners entering Ukraine to present not only PCR tests but also antigen tests or a document on vaccination came into force from June 8, the Ukrainian State Border Guard Service has reported.

According to the report, Cabinet of Ministers resolution No. 583 of June 2, 2021 amended the government resolution establishing quarantine and introducing restrictive anti-epidemic measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. In particular, the list of documents with which foreigners are allowed to cross Ukraine's border during quarantine restrictions and avoid self-isolation has been expanded.

From now on, taking into account the changes approved by the government, foreign citizens and stateless persons (including holders of temporary residence permits in Ukraine) who enter Ukraine, in addition to insurance that covers the costs associated with COVID-19 treatment, observation and is valid for the entire period of stay in Ukraine, should also present either a negative PCR test, a rapid antigen test taken no more than 72 hours before crossing the state border, or a document confirming the receipt of a full course of vaccination from COVID-19 with a vaccine included in the list of COVID-19 vaccines approved for emergency use by the WHO, issued in English or translated into English.

In addition, citizens of Ukraine, foreigners and stateless persons permanently residing in Ukraine, when crossing the state border of Ukraine for entry, do not have to self-isolate if they present a negative PCR test or a rapid antigen test taken no more than 72 hours before crossing the state border, or a document confirming the receipt of a full course of vaccination.

Certificates of testing and vaccination are not required for children under 12 years of age.
