The COVID-19 pandemic has dramatically changed our lives. Closing borders, restrictions on movement and even the inability to meet with relatives have forced us to change and make new plans for the future. Still, foreigners can start the procedure of marrying in Ukraine. Strict quarantine rules were introduced in almost every country, but everywhere had its own characteristics. Given the examples of other countries during the COVID-19 pandemic, Ukraine still remains one of the most open countries for travel.

First of all, foreigners, which interested in marrying in Ukraine and going to cross her border, only need to have:  

  1. an insurance policy that covers the costs of COVID-19 treatment and disease observation. Such a policy can be purchased online and presented on your own smartphone or in printed form when crossing the state border to get married in Ukraine. The document must be valid for the entire trip. That is, if the marriage procedure in Ukraine lasts 2-3 days, so you need an insurance policy only for a period of marrying a foreigner in Ukraine. In this case, its cost will reach about 10 €;
  2. and fulfill one of the following conditions:
  • obtain a negative result of testing for COVID-19 

       or

  • provide a document confirming receipt of a full course of vaccination from COVID-19.
