The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine at its meeting on September 28, 2020 changed the border crossing regime for foreigners and stateless persons.

Foreigners and stateless persons may enter the territory of Ukraine provided that they have a health insurance policy issued by an insurance company registered in Ukraine or by an insurance company having a representative office in Ukraine or a contractual relationship with an insurance company - a partner in Ukraine, which covers the costs related to the treatment of COVID-19 and which is valid during the stay in Ukraine.

A general requirement has been established regarding the implementation of self-isolation for all categories of passengers (Ukrainian citizens, foreigners and stateless persons) coming to Ukraine from countries with significant COVID-19 virus activity, including Serbia, as well as for foreigners who are citizens of those countries.
