On July 14, the Council of the European Union has included Ukraine in the 'green list' of third countries for which entry restrictions should be lifted. However, this is only a recommendation, as EU member states will decide on their own whether to allow the entry, as the press service of Ukraine's Ministry for Foreign Affairs explains.

"The Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Ukraine reminds that inclusion in the 'green list' does not automatically mean entry into the territory of all EU member states. The decision of the EU Council is a recommendation for member states. The final decision to add third countries in the national 'green list' is up to each country "considering the epidemic situation," the statement said.

The Ukrainian MFA is already preparing to hold talks with EU representatives in order to simplify entry for Ukrainians as much as possible. Updated information can be seen on the interactive map of the MFA.

The report also draws attention to the fact that the EU Council updates the 'green list' countries every two weeks, so if the epidemiological situation in Ukraine gets worse, Ukraine may be excluded from the list.

As it was reported earlier, the Council of the European Union has lifted restrictions on internal travel for tourists who have a digital Covid-certificate.

In Ukraine, digital certificates for vaccination against coronavirus on July 5 became available at Diya app.
