COVID-19: general information
From July 1, 2023, the quarantine and emergency regime caused by the coronavirus pandemic have been cancelled in Ukraine. Such decision was taken by the Government, and earlier the WHO canceled the public health emergency. Accordingly, COVID-19 is placed to the group of seasonal diseases, for example, influenza in Ukraine. From now on, the availability of COVID-certificates is not mandatory on the territory of Ukraine, and basic anti-epidemic and preventive measures (e.g. vaccination, use of masks, antiseptics, introduction of restrictive measures and distances in public places) are to be considered as recommended.
Despite the cancellation of the pandemic, each state makes decisions independently on the introduction of quarantine restrictions caused by various infectious diseases. Therefore, in the case of trips abroad, it is worth checking your destination country’s requirements concerning COVID certificates availability. Moreover, airlines carrying out passengers, may impose their own requirements regarding the documents available to the passenger (for example, COVID-certificates) or anti-epidemic and preventive measures (vaccination, masks, etc.).
