"At a meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine on October 11, amendments were made to Resolution #1236, which provides the tougher rules for passenger traffic in regions where the "yellow", "orange" or “red" levels of epidemic danger are established," the message says.
Thus, from October 21, inter-regional passenger transportation in regions with a "yellow", "orange" or "red" level of epidemic danger will be allowed, if all drivers, air transport crew, and passengers have one of the following documents:
- a document confirming the provision of a full course of vaccination (or a document confirming the provision of one dose of vaccine for regions of the "yellow" level of epidemic danger);
- an international, domestic certificate or a foreign certificate confirming vaccination against Covid-19 with one or two doses of vaccine authorized by WHO for use in emergency situations, a negative PCR test result, or a citizen's recovery from a mentioned disease, which is confirmed using the Unified State Web Portal of Electronic Services ( "Diya");
- negative test result for Covid-19 by PCR or express test for the determination of the SARS-CoV-2 coronavirus antigen, valid for 72 hours.
The new rules apply to both regular and non-scheduled passenger traffic. The issue is about road transport on bus routes, air and rail transport of interregional communication.
The corresponding rules will not apply to urban and intraregional transportation.
As we reported, quarantine restrictions can be strengthened in Ukraine. In particular, using public transport and food establishments can be accessible only to citizens with Covid certificates.
