The European Union has removed Ukraine from its so-called green list of countries whose citizens are allowed enter the EU member states without quarantine restriction. This is reported on the website of the Council of the EU.

The decision was made due to the growing incidence of Covid-19.

This is a recommendation for EU member states to limit travel for our citizens: but whether to close the borders to Ukrainians will be decided by each state individually.

"Following a review under the recommendation on the gradual lifting of the temporary restrictions on non-essential travel into the EU, the Council updated the list of countries, special administrative regions and other entities and territorial authorities for which travel restrictions should be lifted. In particular, Singapore and Ukraine were removed from the list," it was stated.

As provided for in the Council's recommendation, this list will continue to be reviewed every two weeks and will be updated depending on the circumstances.

Earlier, the Foreign Ministry stated that the temporary restrictions of the European Union are not the abolition of the visa-free regime and apply only to tourist travel.

The Foreign Ministry says that, given the progress of vaccination campaigns around the world, the EU has recently changed its approach to temporary travel restrictions and recommended that EU member states open borders to fully vaccinated travelers if they pass the cross-border tests.
