Due to its low vaccination rate and large number of Covid-19 cases, Ukraine remains on the Council of Europe’s red travel list, which gets updated every two weeks.

That means non-essential travelers from Ukraine are restricted from entering the European Union. Individual EU countries may lift restrictions for vaccinated Ukrainians. Ukraine has fully vaccinated only 23% of the population. It has the lowest vaccination rate in Europe.
