Ukrainian government canceled COVID test requirement for Ukrainians returning from abroad

The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine, in connection with the transition of the whole country to the "green" level in the situation with the coronavirus, canceled the requirement for a negative test for coronavirus or self-isolation for Ukrainians returning from abroad and foreigners with the right of permanent residence in Ukraine.

"With a" green "level of epidemic danger in Ukraine, crossing the state border from any country is unimpeded for citizens of Ukraine or foreigners with a residence permit. Also, citizens of Ukraine can freely cross the checkpoint," the Ministry of Health said.

 

"According to the joint decision of the Ministry of Digital Affairs and the Ministry of Health, from now on, it will not be necessary to install «Vdoma» mobile application when returning from abroad to Ukraine," the Ministry of Digital Transformation said in the statement.

 

Citizens of other countries in order to enter  Ukraine must have an insurance policy that takes into account the case of COVID-19, as well as a negative test or a certificate of a full course of vaccination:

* negative result of a PCR test done not earlier than 72 hours before crossing the border; negative test result for COVID-19 by PCR (no more than 72 hours before crossing the border)

* negative result of a rapid test for the determination of the antigen of the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (no more than 72 hours before crossing the border)

* a document confirming the receipt of a full course of vaccination against COVID-19 with vaccines included by WHO in the list of permitted for use in emergency situations, issued in accordance with the IHR or in accordance with international treaties concluded by Ukraine on the mutual recognition of vaccination documents.

 

It is clarified that if a different level of epidemic danger returns to the territory of Ukraine instead of the current "green" requirement for a test or self-isolation will return, regardless of the country of arrival.

Self-isolation will not be required if there is a negative PCR test for coronavirus taken 72 hours before crossing the border, or a negative express test, or a document confirming the receipt of a full course of vaccination against COVID-19 vaccines included in the WHO list of approved for use in emergency situations.
