Prime Minister of Ukraine Denys Shmyhal instructed the Deputy Prime Minister for European Integration Olha Stefanyshyna to intensify work on completing the audit of the Ukrainian Covid-certificate for tourists. The Prime Minister stated this during a government meeting.
Shmyhal noted that Ukraine is completing preparations for the launch of coronavirus vaccination passports, which will meet the requirements of the European Commission.
"We have already adopted the necessary resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, which determines the procedure for using such certificates. Everything is ready for the launch of documents, and their beta testing will begin on July 1," he said.
As a reminder, on June 29, the Ministry of Digital Transformation announced the launch of registration for beta testing of coronavirus vaccination certificates.
In Ukraine, the Covid-certificate can be introduced from July 1 and will be valid for up to 180 days if a person has received a full course of vaccination. The certificate will also be issued, and it will be valid for 180 days if a person recovered from the coronavirus and the relevant laboratory-confirmed data are entered in eHealth. In addition, a negative PCR test will be the basis for issuing the certificate. In this case, the validity of the certificate will be 72 hours from the date of sampling.
