Foreigners, including those who have a temporary residence permit in Ukraine and stateless persons, regardless the country of arrival to enter Ukraine must have:

  1. an insurance policy (certificate) issued by an insurance company registered in Ukraine, that covers the costs related to the treatment of COVID-19 and observation, and is valid for the entire period of stay in Ukraine.
  2. one of the following documents issued in English or translated into English:


• a document confirming receipt of one or more doses of COVID-19 vaccine with WHO-approved for emergency use: Pfizer / BioNTech, Johnson & Johnson's Janssen, AstraZeneca / Vaxzevria, AstraZeneca / Covishield (India), AstraZeneca / SKBio (South Korea), Moderna / Spikevax, Sinopharm, CoronaVac (Sinovac)  - this can be an international or national vaccination certificate, digital or on paper; or

• a COVID certificate confirming: a) vaccination against COVID-19 with vaccines that are included in the WHO list of approved for emergency use, b) negative test result for COVID-19 by PCR or c) recovery of a person from COVID-19, issued by the authorized bodies of the Member States of the European Union or authorized bodies of other foreign states with which Ukraine has concluded international agreements on the mutual recognition of COVID certificates; or

• a negative result of the rapid test for the SARS-CoV-2 antigen (RAT) that was conducted no more than 72 hours before entry; or

• a negative result of the PCR test, conducted no more than 72 hours before the entry.


Certificates of antibodies to COVID-19 are not accepted for entry.

Test, vaccination and self-isolation are not required for children under 12.

If the foreigner doesn't have a required vaccination certificate or a COVID certificate, he/she (except those who belong to the exceptions list below) must install the application "Vdoma" on the smartphone and start self-isolation 72 hours after entering Ukraine. During this time, the person will be able to either leave the country (without passing additional tests) or take PCR-test or perform a rapid test for antigen – in case of a negative result the self-isolation is not required.

If the foreigner hasn’t left Ukraine within 72 hours from the moment of crossing the Ukrainian border or hasn’t received the negative test result – the person must self-isolate for 10 days in the place specified during the authorization in the application "Vdoma". It is also possible to stop self-isolation earlier, after receiving a negative result of the PCR test or the express test for antigen.

IMPORTANT! Unvaccinated citizens (except those who belong to the exceptions list below) who travel from Russia or India (including in transit) and have been on their territory for more than 7 days in the last 14 days must self-isolate for 14 days and will not be able to take a test in Ukraine to avoid or reduce self-isolation.

In case of impossibility or refusal to install the mobile application "Vdoma", the foreigner will be denied to enter Ukraine.
