For the attention of citizens, intending to cross the administrative boundary line with the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol

On June, 28 the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine amended its resolution №1236 dated 9 December 2020 “On the establishment of quarantine and the introduction of restrictive anti-epidemic measures in order to prevent the spread of acute respiratory disease Covid-19 in Ukraine caused by the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2”. Such amendments should help to identify and counteract the spread of Coronavirus, particularly its Delta-variant.

According to the resolution persons, intending to cross the entry-exit checkpoints at the administrative boundary line with the temporarily occupied Autonomous Republic of Crimea and the city of Sevastopol should have a document confirming the completion of a full course of vaccination against COVID-19 with a vaccine approved by the World Health Organization (WHO) for emergency use or medical certificate 063-O on first vaccination (excluding persons under the age of 18). Such persons will have to pass free express -test to determine coronavirus antigen SARS-CoV-2.

Coronavirus variant “Delta” is actively spreading around the Western Europe, including countries our citizens choose for summer adventures. We propose new border crossing rules to reduce the possibility of spreading the virus in Ukraine if someone falls ill abroad. It will also enable us to carry out better epidemic investigations in the event that a host is found. Self-isolation or observation of uninvited COVID-19 people to facilitate control and reduce the chance of a new large-scale ignition “, the Ministry of Healthcare of Ukraine Victor Lyashko said, explaining the need for a regulation. 

This decision will become effective 7 days after publication the resolution. More information can be found at the link: https://cutt.ly/kQohb8M.
