Traveling to Ukraine

Last updated: 07/14/2021

Ukraine Travel Insurance Requirements

All foreign visitors traveling to Ukraine, regardless of their country of citizenship, are required to have a travel insurance policy issued by an insurance company registered in Ukraine. This policy must include coverage for the costs related to treating Covid-19, and must be valid for the entirety of their stay in Ukraine.

In addition to this, all travelers above the age of 12 must provide a negative Covid-19 test result within 72 hours of entering the country. Foreign travelers will not be able to take the Covid-19 test in Ukraine. Travelers who do not provide a negative test result or proof of an insurance policy will be denied entry at the border.

Travelers can start the process to buy a travel medical insurance policy for their trip to Ukraine here.

Squaremouth’s Travel Insurance Recommendations

Squaremouth recommends travelers visiting Ukraine purchase a travel insurance policy with at least $50,000 in Emergency Medical coverage, and at least $100,000 in Medical Evacuation coverage.

The Emergency Medical benefit can reimburse the costs of treating an illness during a trip, such as the costs associated with Covid-19, including physician services, ambulance fees, and hospital fees, among others.

The Medical Evacuation benefit can cover the cost of an evacuation to the nearest hospital in the event of an emergency.

Along with these medical benefits, for travelers who are concerned about losing their prepaid trip expenses if they need to cancel their trip to Ukraine, Squaremouth recommends insuring these costs through the Trip Cancellation benefit. This benefit can reimburse 100% of a traveler’s prepaid and non-refundable trip costs if they need to cancel for a covered reason, such as not being able to travel because they are sick with Covid-19 or another illness.
