Entering Ukraine during the war: rules and convenient routes


First of all, it should be noted that the rules for crossing the Ukrainian border for foreigners have not changed. However, when planning such a trip, foreign nationals should familiarize themselves with the basic safety rules to avoid unwanted risks and not endanger themselves. Read more about the current restrictions and entry rules in this article.


The second important aspect is to take out appropriate insurance, as any foreign insurance automatically terminates after crossing the Ukrainian border. In this case, we recommend that you take out insurance specifically covering military risks, which will cover not only standard medical care/treatment/diagnosis, etc. but also accidents and injuries caused by passive or direct military risks.


You can take out such insurance on the Visit Ukraine website. Follow the link and choose an insurance policy with the appropriate coverage and indemnity amount for the required period.


It should be noted that the Visit Ukraine team has already collected the most convenient routes to get to Ukraine from around the world. To learn more, select the country of interest and follow the link:
