Testing is available for two categories of passengers:

  • For those who arrived from the red zone.

The test results are sent to the Public Health Centre of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine within twenty-four hours and are automatically synchronised with the ‘Dii Vdoma’ app. If you have a negative result of testing for COVID-19, the app will inform you that you can terminate the self-isolation. The procedure for terminating self-isolation is explained at the Public Health Centre website.

  • For those who have to provide a certificate with a negative test result at the border crossing of the country of destination.

The airport point issues certificates of the required form in English. You can get the results by email or at the airport point. The testing should be done in advance.

It depends on which zone your origin country belongs to. If it’s the ‘green zone’, you don’t need to undergo the test. If it’s the ‘red zone’, you have three options:

  1. To install the ‘Dii Vdoma’ app and undergo a 14-day self-isolation period without any tests.
  2. To undergo the PCR test for COVID-19 upon arrival in Ukraine, and if a result is negative, you can early end your self-isolation proven by the ‘Dii Vdoma’ app.
  3. To undergo the test no later than 48 hours before crossing the Ukrainian border and produce a negative result at the border. This will free you from having to undergo the test in Ukraine and self-isolate.
