Citizens of the Czech Republic go to Ukraine for various purposes: as volunteers, journalists, as part of diplomatic missions or simply to visit relatives and rest.

Foreigners have the right to enter Ukraine, but must comply with migration legislation. Do citizens of the Czech Republic need a visa to Ukraine? Rules for traveling to Ukraine in 2023 below.


It should be noted that over 12 thousand tourists from the Czech Republic visited Ukraine in the first half of 2023.

List of documents for travel to Ukraine from the Czech Republic


For visa-free entry to Ukraine, a citizen of the Czech Republic must provide:

● valid foreign passport;

● medical insurance;

● confirmation of the purpose of stay - tourist voucher, tickets, invitations from relatives, work contract, etc.;

● sufficient level of financial support ($45 per day per person) - cash, bank statement, etc.

Before traveling to Ukraine, it is important to book a hotel, because according to the visa-free rules, a confirmed reservation is the basis for entering the country.

Since July 1, the rules for crossing the Ukrainian border have been simplified, because all quarantine measures related to the Covid-19 epidemic have been canceled in the country. After the lifting of the quarantine, foreigners do not need to provide proof of vaccination and wear a protective mask. At the same time, the Ministry of Health of Ukraine recommends using preventive measures: masks, antiseptics, and social distancing in crowded places, as well as timely vaccination.


Is it necessary to obtain insurance for entering Ukraine from the Czech Republic?


An insurance policy is a mandatory document for entering Ukraine. It usually covers risks related to injuries or illnesses. However, in the conditions of war, the number of threats increases. In order to have reliable protection while traveling in Ukraine, it is worth taking out insurance that covers military risks. This policy is designed to cover general medical services, as well as accidents resulting from military operations, passive war risks, terrorist acts, etc. Read more about the benefits of this type of insurance here.
