Foreigners coming to Ukraine must have health insurance that covers all COVID-19 related treatment and observation for the duration of their stay in Ukraine.
The policy must be issued by an insurance company registered in Ukraine; or a foreign insurance company with a representative office in Ukraine or a contractual relationship with a partner insurance company in Ukraine.
This requirement does not apply to:
foreigners and stateless persons permanently residing in Ukraine;
refugees and persons needing additional protection;
employees of diplomatic missions and consulates, representative offices of international missions and organizations accredited in Ukraine, members of their families;
military of NATO member states and Partnership for Peace member states participating in the training of units of the Armed Forces of Ukraine.


Citizens of Ukraine who do not arrive with a negative COVID-19 test must self-isolate and install the Dii Vdoma (Act at Home) mobile app. Border guards check for the app. If you are unable to install the app, you must go to a designated facility for observation
You can download the app on Google Play: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=ua.gov.diia.quarantine&hl=uk
You have 24 hours after installing the app to arrive at the destination where you plan to self-isolate. The app sends push notifications for selfies confirming your location – you have 20 minutes to do so. Local police are notified if the photo or geolocation do not match, if the app has been uninstalled, or the phone has been turned off.
The app is currently available only in Ukrainian – an English version is being developed.
A Ukrainian SIM card is required to use the app. Future versions should work on non-Ukrainian SIM cards.
Contact your airline about purchasing a Ukrainian SIM card.
For questions about the Dii Vdoma app contact the Ministry of Digital Transformation of Ukraine.


If you take a COVID-19 PCR test at a certified laboratory in Ukraine and receive a negative result you do not have to continue medical observation / self-isolation.
The list of certified labs can be found on the website of the Center of Public Health (CPH) of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine.
In case of a negative result, the labs enters the information into an online platform which syncs with the Dii Vdoma app hourly. Users receive a message on the Dii Vdoma app that they can end self-isolation / observation.
The phone number provided when taking a COVID-19 test must match the number used to install the Dii Vdoma app.
