Restrictions for Travelling to Ukraine
On the 27 August the Ukrainian Government announced that it would close the border to most foreigners entering Ukraine from 00:00 on 28 August, to 00:00 on 28 September. The government has released a list of exempt categories (in Ukrainian) that includes first-degree relatives of Ukrainian citizens, people transiting within 48 hours, permanent and temporary residents, people with permits to work in Ukraine, technical specialists invited by Ukrainian enterprises, students, lorry and coach drivers and train and air crew, people visiting on official government invitation, sportspeople taking part in officially sanctioned competitions, diplomats, and some others. However, you should note that the formal regulations have yet to be published. The British Embassy will publish an update once there is official confirmation. You should take these likely measures into account in your planning.
Upon arrival, all foreign nationals will be required to provide proof of health insurance that covers COVID-19 observation and treatment for the duration of their stay. Insurance must be purchased from a company registered in Ukraine or a foreign company that has a representative office or an insurance partner in Ukraine.
Internal and Domestic Travel
Ukraine has extended its COVID-19 quarantine restrictions until August 31. The country will be divided into four epidemiological zones (green, yellow, orange and red) depending on the COVID-19 situation in different Ukrainian oblasts. Intercity transport is operating but with varying restrictions dictated by epidemiological zones. Internal flights are operating but are subject to change as the situation dictates.
