What does it mean for the tourists planning their trip to Ukraine? Updated COVID-19 in Ukraine news as at January 25, 2021.
Updated entering rules to Ukraine: PCR test and self-isolation
To end self-isolation travels from abroad must pass a PCR test in a verified laboratory in Ukraine on arrival. It is important that the laboratory has access to the electronic system of the Public Health Center, otherwise the results will not be available.
The data on the negative result is entered by the laboratory independently. Any information about a negative result of PCR testing sent by mail, messages in social networks, provided by phone, etc., will not be accepted.
The phone number must correspond to the number for which the Diia Vdoma (Act at Home) application is enabled.
The data of the electronic platform is synchronized with the service “Diia Vdoma” (Act at Home) automatically. Synchronization takes place hourly, seven days a week. Download Diia Vdoma
If you have the results of a negative PCR test performed abroad (there is information in English or Ukrainian), but the border guards forced you to install the application “Diia vdoma”, you need to send a request to the Public Health Center at firstname.lastname@example.org.
