How to safely visit and travel to Ukraine?

Martial law is in effect in Ukraine and air traffic has been suspended, however, the entry and exit of foreign citizens by land is allowed.

Checkpoints on the border with Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova are open and safe. Checkpoints with the russia, Belarus and Transnistria are closed.

Crossing the state border of Ukraine is possible with:

• a valid passport document (the passport must be valid for the entire stay in the country);

! Citizens of Turkey and Georgia can enter Ukraine on the basis of an ID card.

• availability of an entry visa, if required;

• a residence permit, the term of which expired after February 24, 2022, gives the right to enter Ukraine;

• availability of a health insurance policy. Insurance in Ukraine is mandatory.

For journalists, reporters, correspondents, opinion leaders, as well as media representatives, this is enshrined in the Law of Ukraine on Insurance (Article 7).

Visit Ukraine also strongly recommends that you take out medical insurance covering military risks for the entire stay in Ukraine. This policy guarantees monetary compensation in the event of an accident as a result of passive military risks, terrorist acts, including repatriation of the insured person (or his body, in case of death) from the place of stay to the place of his permanent accommodation.

Options such as emergency care, outpatient treatment, hospitalization, etc. are included in health insurance contracts.

Recommendation! Be prepared to confirm the purpose of your entry and stay in Ukraine.


1. Check whether the Embassy of your country has resumed work on the territory of Ukraine. Write down his address and contacts so you always have access.

2. Make electronic copies of all your documents and store them on an electronic device.

3. Find out in advance the curfew time in the region where you are going.

4. Be ready for the sound of air alarms. The threat of a missile attack can happen in any region or city of Ukraine. Download the "Air Raid" mobile application (from Google Play Market or AppStore) to instantly receive notifications of air raid alerts in the selected city.

5. If possible, choose a hotel where you stay, with its own shelter or near a bomb shelter.

6. Give your relatives and loved ones a detailed itinerary of your trip, when and where you intend to stay or stop.

7. Be sure to take out medical insurance with extended coverage for the entire period of stay in Ukraine.
