The Cabinet of Ministers has introduced compulsory PCR testing or self-isolation for unvaccinated persons when entering Ukraine from August 5.

This is stated in the Resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers, No. 787, of July 28, Ukrainian News Agency reports.

Ukrainians who travel abroad before August 4 will be able to return to Ukraine without hindrance.

From August 5, according to the decree, Ukrainians who have a document confirming the receipt of a full course of vaccination against the coronavirus or certificate 063-O on receiving the first dose of the coronavirus vaccine will be able to freely cross the border without undertaking a coronavirus PCR test or staying at home on self-isolation.

Citizens who have not been vaccinated against the coronavirus, upon entering Ukraine, will have to install the Vdoma application and begin self-isolation after 72 hours in the absence of a negative coronavirus PCR test or rapid testing for the determination of the coronavirus antigen, made within 72 hours from the moment of crossing the border.

If it is impossible to use the Vdoma application, the citizen will be under observation.

The Vdoma application will start monitoring self-isolation from the third day or in case of a positive coronavirus test result.

When entering Ukraine, foreigners must have a coronavirus insurance policy and one of the following documents: negative coronavirus PCR test result (done no earlier than 72 hours before crossing the border), negative express test for the determination of the coronavirus antigen (made no earlier than 72 hours before crossing the border), a document confirming the receipt of a full course of vaccination against the coronavirus.

If there is no document confirming the receipt of the full course of vaccination against the coronavirus, the foreigner must install the Vdoma application and undertake to begin self-isolation after 72 hours in the absence of a negative coronavirus PCR test or rapid testing for the determination of the coronavirus antigen, made within 72 hours from the moment of crossing the border.

At that, foreigners with a residence permit in Ukraine will be able to cross the border without hindrance if they have a document confirming that they have received a full course of vaccination against the coronavirus.

Besides, for all persons, regardless of citizenship, who arrived from Russia or India and have been on the territory of these states for more than seven days in the last two weeks, a mandatory 14-day self-isolation will be established without the right to early termination.

Besides, according to the Resolution, to cross the checkpoint in the absence of a document confirming the receipt of a full course of vaccination against the coronavirus or certificate 063-O on receiving the first dose of vaccination against the coronavirus (except for persons under 18 years of age), you will need to pass a free rapid test for the determination of the coronavirus antigen.

As Ukrainian News Agency earlier reported, on June 16, the Cabinet of Ministers canceled the control of self-isolation through the Diia mobile application.
