Despite the fact that the European Union removed Ukraine from the list of "green countries", Cyprus, Estonia, Croatia, the Netherlands, and the Czech Republic decided not to restrict entry to their territory for Ukrainian citizens. Dmytro Kuleba, the Head of the Ukrainian MFA, announced this on Twitter.
Ukrainians can enter the territory of Cyprus by presenting:
- covid-certificate of international standard (in paper or electronic format),
- "yellow" certificate issued by a family doctor,
- negative PCR test (done within 72 hours before departure).
Unvaccinated Ukrainians are obliged to do a PCR test at their own expense upon arrival. Until the results are obtained, the person must self-isolate.
Fully vaccinated Ukrainians are allowed to enter Estonia for any purpose. However, no more than a year should have passed since the last dose was administered to a person.
Unvaccinated Ukrainians entering the territory of Estonia for the purpose of work, study, or with a special permit are required to present a negative PCR/antigen test. This category will be forced to have to quarantine for 10 days.
The country accepts the following vaccines: Comirnaty (BioNTech/Pfizer), AztraZeneca/Vaxzevria/Covishield, CoronaVac.
To enter Croatia, citizens of Ukraine need documentary confirmation of the purpose of the trip (hotel booking, urgent personal or family reasons, an invitation from a business partner, education, participation in a competition, etc.).
To enter the country, you must provide one of the following documents:
- negative PCR/antigen test,
- covid certificate (no less than 14 and no more than 365 days must pass from the the last dose was administered),
- recovery document (issued by a doctor),
- certificate of recovery and receipt of the first dose of vaccine within 8 months from the date of infection.
If a person does not have any of these documents, they must self-isolate for 10 days with the possibility to terminate this period after doing the tests on the territory of Croatia at their own expense. The decision is in force until November 15.
According to the Ukrainian MFA, the Czech Republic also remains open for travel of the vaccinated Ukrainians under the same conditions as before.
The Netherlands also decided to retain travel opportunities for Ukrainian citizens who have completed a full course of vaccinations. However, from November 13, in addition to the vaccination certificate for entry, citizens of Ukraine will have to present a negative test.
Context. Recall that on the eve of the European Union removed Ukraine from the list of countries in respect of which it was recommended to gradually lift travel restrictions. Meanwhile, the Ukrainian Ministry of Foreign Affairs explained that "there will be no total closure of the borders of the European Union."
