On 22 March, the Government of Ukraine passed a resolution requiring all individuals who enter Ukraine to produce a negative PCR test. Ukrainians who arrive from abroad have an option to self-isolate for 14 days.

 Restrictions for Ukrainians

Citizens of Ukraine who arrive from abroad are required to produce a negative PCR test being taken no more than 48 hours before crossing the border. Ukrainians who did not undergo a test must self-isolate for 14 days using the Vdoma (Act at Home) app. It is possible to end the self-isolation early by taking a PCR test at certified laboratories: after receiving a negative result, restrictions will be lifted. Mandatory self-isolation does not apply to children younger than 12 years of age and other categories of citizens mentioned in the resolution

 Previously, a PCR test and self-isolation were mandatory only for passengers entering from ‘Red Zone’ countries. The new resolution made these requirements obligatory for entering from all countries. 

 Restrictions for foreigners 

Upon entering Ukraine, foreign nationals and stateless persons must provide a negative PCR test being taken no more than 72 hours before crossing the border. Non-compliant passengers will be denied entry to Ukraine. According to previous requirements, foreign nationals must also produce a health insurance certificate which covers COVID-19 treatment.

Countries are no longer divided into ‘red’ and ‘green’ zones: COVID-19 testing is now mandatory for all passengers.
