Departure – Ukraine
Foreigners are allowed to enter the territory of Ukraine under the following conditions:
Proof of travel medical insurance must be provided, which will also cover the possible costs of treatment associated with COVID-19 and placement in a quarantine facility in the territory of Ukraine and will be valid for the entire duration of the planned stay in Ukraine. This insurance must be issued either by an insurance company registered in Ukraine or by a foreign insurance company with a representative office in Ukraine or a regular contract with a Ukrainian partner (assistance service). Health insurance can be arranged at https://visitukraine.today/.
It is also necessary to submit:
The result of a negative PCR test or rapid antigen test which must not be older than 72 hours (the test does not have to be submitted by children under 12 years of age);
Covid-certificate for full (completed) vaccination with a WHO-approved vaccine, in English or translated into English.

Within 72 hours of entering the territory of Ukraine, it is necessary to pass a PCR test or antigen test for the presence of Covid in one of the Ukrainian certified laboratories. The person receives the test result via the Vdoma application. If the result is negative the application will be deactivated and it will be possible to uninstall it. In the case of a positive test the foreigner and the citizen of Ukraine must contact the general practitioner and follow his instructions. If a foreigner or citizen of Ukraine does not perform a PCR test or antigen test on Covid-19 within 72 hours of entering the territory of Ukraine, they will have to enter quarantine. Compliance with it will be carried out by the city police, who will automatically forward the data of the person who did not take the test after crossing the border.
Foreigners over the age of 18 who do not submit a Covid-Certificate of Vaccination or Recovery from Covid-19 and do not install the Vdoma application will not be allowed to enter the territory of Ukraine.
Foreigners who have a certificate of vaccination against COVID or recovery from COVID-19 within the last 180 days do not have to have a negative COVID-19 test result or enter quarantine if they exceed the limit.
Passengers who transit through the territory of Ukraine and do not leave the airport transit zone do not have to have travel insurance or test results.
