    The final decision on a person’s eligibility to enter Ukraine rests with the Ukrainian State Border Service. The entry requirement policies of foreign governments are imposed and enforced at their discretion.
    The Ukrainian government has not outlined any changes to the quarantine requirements in addition to the closure of the border to most categories of foreigner.
    If you are among the groups permitted to enter Ukraine, the country from which you are travelling will dictate whether or not you are required to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival in Ukraine. Travellers arriving from countries in what the Ukrainian authorities call the “green zone” (where COVID-19 case incidence in the previous 14 days has been lower than in Ukraine, and where the incidence has increased by less than 30% in the last 14 days), are not required to undergo self-isolation or observation on arrival. Travellers arriving from countries in what the Ukrainian authorities call the “red zone” (where COVID-19 case incidence in the previous 14 days has been higher than in Ukraine, and/or where the incidence has increased by over 30% in the previous 14 days) are required to undergo 14 days’ self-isolation proven by the “Dii Vdoma” tracking app [https://visitukraine.today/#diya], or quarantine in a Government-approved facility for 14 days upon arrival. Mandatory self-isolation or quarantine is no longer necessary if a traveller undergoes a PCR test and receives a negative result no more than 48 hours in advance of his/her arrival in Ukraine, or once in Ukraine. Further information about taking the tests in Ukraine and terminating self-isolation in case of a negative result can be found via the ‘more detailed’ link of the ‘for citizens of “red zone” countries’ box on the Ukrainian authorities’ Visit Ukraine webpage [https://visitukraine.today/]Citizens of “red” countries who can prove that they have spent the last 14 days in “green” countries are treated as arriving from the “green zone”, and will not be required to isolate. Individuals whose travel originated in a “green” country but who have visited a “red” country prior to arriving to Ukraine (for example, those travelling by car transiting “red” countries) may be required to self-isolate or quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. Mandatory self-isolation or quarantine is no longer necessary if a traveller undergoes a PCR test and receives a negative result no more than 48 hours in advance of his/her arrival in Ukraine, or once in Ukraine. Check the list of red and green zone countries [https://visitukraine.today/]. by clicking the “more detailed” links in the “for citizens of green/red zones” information boxes. The red and green zone lists are updated frequently and can change quickly in response to the epidemic – you should check the lists regularly. Children under the age of 12, drivers and crew members of cargo vehicles, buses, train, locomotive, aircraft, sea and river vessels are also not required to undergo self-isolation or quarantine, provided they have not been in contact with a person with COVID-19. Self-isolation on entry to Ukraine can be completed at your chosen address using the “Dii Vdoma” mobile app. You need to have a Ukrainian mobile phone number with the SIM card activated before you arrive in the country, though the SIM does not need to be in your phone on arrival. When using the app, you must respond promptly to notifications sent to your mobile (in Ukrainian). More information: [https://www.kmu.gov.ua/en/news/yak-pracyuye-zastosunok-dij-vdoma].
    Make sure that you understand the regular reporting requirements before taking up this option. People who do not register with the Dii Vdoma app [https://visitukraine.today/#diya]. or who do not abide by its terms, are required to complete quarantine at a government-approved observation centre. Travellers arriving in Ukraine or crossing the administrative points from non-government-controlled parts of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts and Crimea will be subject to health monitoring on arrival. You should comply with any additional screening measures put in place by the authorities. Further information about visiting Ukraine during the quarantine period can be found at the Ukrainian authorities’ Visit Ukraine webpage [https://visitukraine.today/]

    Internal restrictions:

    International and domestic flights have now resumed, although some carriers are operating a reduced schedule. Public transport in cities and bus and train travel between regions have also resumed on a reduced scale. Coronavirus measures have been extended until 31 October. When in public places, including when travelling on public transport and in taxis, you must maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 m, wear protective masks and gloves. The number of passengers per vehicle is limited to the number of seats, with the exception of metro carriages. Failure to comply with restrictions may result in a fine or, in more serious cases, a prison sentence. Before taking public transport, you should consider whether you will be able to maintain social distancing. Restrictions are enacted locally, with Ukraine divided into four “colour zones” – green, yellow, orange and red – depending on the number and growth rate of new COVID-19 cases, hospital capacity and testing rates. In “green zones” social distancing and mask-wearing regulations remain in place, and mass events are limited. In red zones, public transport is suspended, as is the work of most non-essential facilities. This map [http://reachinitiative.maps.arcgis.com/apps/webappviewer/index.html?id=b8ea3d22c51246528abb47ef94f20edb&fbclid=IwAR0KHFOuRvgAOZjfkCyQpA1EzFUm8HmKH1UbcEezLzTTsQZr74YzZA6chAc] sets out the current status of the different regions of Ukraine. The zones can be updated on a daily basis – the government and local authorities have indicated that they may enact local lockdowns at short notice – and enforcement or relaxation of new rules may not happen immediately. You should check the status of regions regularly.
    The Ukrainian authorities have urged all pilgrims to refrain from visiting the city of Uman for the Jewish festival of Rosh Hashanah in 2020, due to the COVID-19 crisis.
    Accommodation, including hotels and private rentals, is open to the public. In “orange” and “red” zones, hotels and campsites should be closed. When staying in a hotel, you must adhere to the same rules as for being in public place. This includes: Wearing a protective mask in all public areas; Maintaining a minimum distance of 1.5m; If possible, check in online in advance to avoid check-in queues at the hotel.. Further information can be found at Visit Ukraine [https://visitukraine.today/].
    In “green” and “yellow” zones, shops, restaurants, cafes, religious establishments, beauty salons and hairdressers, museums, libraries, gyms, fitness centres, swimming pools, hardware stores, cobblers, dentists, auditors, lawyers and notaries may now operate (providing appropriate hygiene and distancing measures are in place). The number of visitors to shopping centres, restaurants and sport facilities is limited to one person per 5 sq. m. Parks and recreation areas have reopened. When in public places, including when travelling on public transport and in taxis, you must maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 m and wear protective masks and gloves. In “orange” zones, entertainment facilities and restaurants will have their hours restricted, gyms, fitness centres, swimming pools and cultural establishments will be closed, and social distancing requirements increase to one person per 20 square metres. In “red” zones, public transport will not operate, and restaurants, cafes and shopping malls will close, as will educational establishments.

  • Ukraine At a meeting on August 26, the Ukrainian government unanimously voted in favor of introducing a ban on the entry of foreigners into the country, with the exception of certain categories of people.

    The authorities’ decision was argued by the need to prevent the second wave of COVID-19 due to the surge in incidence.

    The revised draft document will be published on August 27, and it will enter into force from 00:00 on August 29 for 30 days. The ban will expire at 00:00 on September 28.

    Initially, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov proposed introducing a ban until the end of quarantine, which the government extended until October 31.

    Foreigners from both the red and green list countries will not be able to enter Ukraine from August 29. A few days ago, the authorities announced plans to ban the entry of foreigners from the red list countries only.

    An exception was made for the following categories of foreign citizens. Foreigners will still be able to enter Ukraine who:

    permanently reside in Ukraine and have the appropriate certificate,
    go in transit through Ukraine upon presentation of documents confirming that they will leave the country within 2 days,
    study in Ukraine,
    serve in the army of Ukraine,
    recognized as refugees,
    are employees of diplomatic missions and consulates in Ukraine or arrive at the invitation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine,
    are drivers or crew members of freight vehicles and buses that perform regular transportation, aircraft, sea and river vessels, train and locomotive crews,
    are cultural figures and arrive at the invitation of cultural institutions,
    are athletes traveling to competitions in Ukraine,
    arrive for treatment at Ukrainian hospitals,
    are workers who follow to Ukraine for work of emergency. The admission of such persons is carried out in agreement with the head of the State Border Service after the appeal of local authorities or enterprises.

    On behalf of the President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky, citizens of Belarus may be allowed into the territory of Ukraine for humanitarian purposes if they request to cross the border. The decision is also made by the head of the State Border Service.

We are engaged in a dialogue with air carriers, and so far there is a common position that it makes no sense to open airports earlier than June 15.

    3. As for now – there are no officially published decisions of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on the matter.

    4.

  • Ukraine Quarantine measures introduced in Ukraine due to coronavirus COVID-19 will be extended until June 22. Adaptive quarantine will be in effect, ie restrictive measures will be gradually eased depending on the epidemical situation in each region. There will be a total of 5 stages of quarantine relaxation.

    The relevant decision was made at a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on May 20 at the initiative of the Ministry of Health.

    “We propose to introduce adaptive quarantine measures from May 22 to June 22. At that, we are introducing criteria of an epidemical situation in the regions, namely: incidence, overloading of beds in healthcare facilities, as well as the number of PCR and ELISA (enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay) tests. Based on these indicators, decisions will be made to reduce quarantine measures. In total, we will have 5 stages of relaxation of restrictions,” Health Minister Maksym Stepanov commented on the Government’s decision.

    According to the Minister, the incidence is the average number of COVID-19 cases in the last 7 days per 100,000 population, which should be less than 12 people per 100,000 population. “Bed occupancy in health facilities designated for hospitalization of patients with confirmed COVID-19 should be less than 50%. And the number of PCR and ELISA tests – more than 12 per 100 thousand population in the last 7 days,” said Maxym Stepanov.

    It is worth noting that decisions on quarantine relaxation in each region are made by the Commission on Technogenic and Environmental Safety and Emergencies. The first stage of easing restrictive measures has been in effect in Ukraine by May 22, and the second will be introduced on May 22.
