Some medical and health tourists can visit Ukraine

 

Ukraine closed its borders for all tourism and foreign arrivals from August 29 until September 28, to help curb rising cases throughout the nation. It then re-opened again using a green and red-zoned country list that effect who can enter Ukraine and what restrictions apply. The list is updated every 24 hours.

Red zone countries are where COVID-19 case numbers in the last 14 days are higher than case numbers in Ukraine, or countries where new case numbers have increased more than 30% in the last 14 days compared to the prior two-week period. Tourists entering Ukraine from red zone countries may still be permitted, but need to undergo quarantine for 14 days, or take a PCR test at an authorised laboratory or provide a negative test no older than 49 hours before arriving.

Green zone countries are defined by having less than 40 active cases per 100,000 population, or lower case rates than Ukraine. Tourists entering Ukraine from the green zone countries do not need to quarantine or take a test.

All tourists must show proof of health insurance with COVID cover to enter Ukraine. The government site VisitUkraine sells such insurance. All tourists may be subject to health screening and or thermal scans upon arrival at airports in Ukraine.

Most medical travellers to Ukraine are from Russia, a green zone country. Health tourists are from Russia and Europe, with many European countries listed as green. Ukraine is also seeking to develop business from China, a green zone country and the Middle East, where most countries are red zoned.
