Ukraine's Healthcare Minister Viktor Lyashko claimed that the EU will give Ukraine an advantage among third countries in terms of order of recognition of Covid certificates. This was mentioned in the official's interview with Hromadske Radio.
"I announce this: Ukraine is among the first ones in the list of third countries, i.e. non-EU members, to get the access, and the Ukrainian passport will be recognized and used in the EU territory, - just like the European certificate", the Minister said.
According to him, European immunization passports will be recognized in Ukraine, too.
According to the ministry, the pilgrims and stateless persons who cross the Ukrainian state border should have insurance policy, which covers expenses for treatment of Covid-19 and observation. The insurance policy should act during the whole period of stay in Ukraine.
Besides, the foreigners should have one of such documents:
- negative result of the PCR test for Covid-19 (issued not more than 72 hours before border crossing)
- negative result of express test for antigen of coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 (issued not more than 72 hours before border crossing);
- document that confirms full course of inoculation against Covid-19 by the vaccines included in the WHO list;
- foreign Covid-19 certificate issued by the state with which Ukraine has concluded the treaty on the mutual recognition of Covid-certificates.
