The Government of Ukraine has abolished self-isolation for foreigners who are in transit in the country and must leave it within 48 hours. This was reported by the press service of the State Border Guard Service of Ukraine.
Thus, from September 20, foreigners and stateless persons who enter Ukraine for the purpose of transit and have documents confirming their departure from the country within 48 hours are exempt from self-isolation. They also do not need to test for Covid-19 in Ukraine and install the Home application.
At the same time, the requirement for foreign citizens and holders of a residence permit to have an insurance policy issued by a company registered in Ukraine, which covers the costs of treatment and observation, remains in force.
It is noted that foreigners, holders of residence permits and stateless persons must enter one of the following documents to enter Ukraine:
- confirmation of receiving one or more doses of the Covid-19 vaccine included in the WHO list;
- Covid-certificate confirming vaccination, negative PCR test result or recovery from Covid-19;
- negative result of PCR test or rapid test for antigen, made no more than 72 hours before entry.
Certificates of testing and vaccination are not required for children under 12 years.
Foreigners over the age of 18 who have not been vaccinated should have a negative test result and install the Home application to control self-isolation. It is terminated if another negative test is received within 72 hours of entry.
As it was reported earlier, quarantine rules in Ukraine were changed. In particular, the new quarantine rules stipulate that the Covid certificate will have two options. The yellow certificate will help citizens avoid the quarantine restrictions of the yellow quarantine zone. The green certificate is only issued to citizens who completed their vaccination course.
The resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers will come into force in 7 days from the moment of publication.
