On 16 June, the government of Ukraine cancelled mandatory self-isolation for Ukrainian citizens who return from abroad. The rules will apply as long as Ukraine falls within the ‘green’ quarantine zone. Foreigners still need to produce one of three documents to cross the border: a negative PCR test result, a rapid test result, or a vaccination certificate.

It depends on the particular country’s rules. Visit the following websites to learn more:
