The Cabinet of Ministers amended the quarantine regulations on September 13. Including border crossing procedures. This was reported by the State Border Service.

Foreigners and stateless persons who enter Ukraine for the purpose of transit and have documents confirming their departure from the country within 48 hours are exempted from self-isolation, installing the application Vdoma, and making a test in Ukraine.

Testing and vaccination certificates are not required for children under 12.

Foreign citizens over the age of 18 who have not been vaccinated must have a negative test result and install a mobile application for monitoring self-isolation, regardless of the period of stay in Ukraine.

Self-isolation does not apply if, within 72 hours from the moment of entry, a person does a PCR test or a rapid antigen test and gets a negative result.

The regulation comes into force on September 20, 2021.
