Ukraine is introducing precautionary measures to prevent the spread of a new Delta strain of coronavirus. Therefore, from July 2, the application Vdoma will be obligatory for installation by citizens of Ukraine who have returned from Portugal, Russia, Great Britain and India or have been on the territory of the aforesaid countries for at least 7 days in the last 14 days and have not passed or tested positive for coronavirus antigen SARS-CoV-2, to be conducted at border crossings.
Relevant amendments were made by the Government to the Resolution “On the Introduction of Quarantine and Restrictive Anti-Epidemic Measures to Prevent the Spread of Acute Respiratory Disease COVID-19 Caused by SARS-CoV-2 Coronavirus on the territory of Ukraine”.
To cross the border into Ukraine from these countries, Ukrainian citizens need a negative result of a rapid test for SARS-CoV-2 antigen, made directly at the border crossing point. This test is performed before passing passport control. Otherwise, a person will need to undergo mandatory 14-day self-isolation or observation with mandatory installation Diia Vdoma.
For foreigners and stateless persons without a negative result of such a test, crossing the state border will be prohibited.
At large international crossings points in the border control zone, there are already operating testing points where you can do a quick test.
The conditions of entry into Ukraine from other countries have not changed - since Ukraine is in the "green" zone, the application does not need to be installed.
The Ministry of Digital Transformation, the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Internal Affairs and the Public Health Center launched the Diia Vdoma application in April last year. The Ministry of Digital Transformation has developed a technical part. The application provided people with the opportunity to undergo self-isolation at home in comfortable conditions. During this time, it was loaded by almost 1 million people.
It should be noted, on July 2, 5,001 people, including 1,837 foreigners and 3,164 citizens of Ukraine, crossed the state border to enter Ukraine from Russia, Great Britain, Portugal and India. 82 people were sent under observation, 40 foreigners were denied entry to Ukraine.
