The Ukrainian Embassy in Germany has explained the current travel regime for Ukrainian citizens to Germany.
“According to the report of the German Robert Koch Institute, starting from January 9, 2022, Ukraine is no longer included in the list of the so-called ‘countries of increased risk for Germany.’ The ‘Green List’ of countries whose citizens can freely enter the Federal Republic of Germany,” the embassy said on Facebook on Wednesday.

It is important that vaccines against COVID-19 are allowed in the EU: Comirnaty (BioNTech), Moderna, AstraZeneca or Janssen. Vaccination with the last required dose should be carried out at least 14 days before entry,” the embassy said.
It is also noted that unvaccinated citizens of Ukraine can enter Germany only in case of urgent need, presenting either a negative test result (PCR or antigen), made no earlier than 48 hours before entry, or a certificate of recovery.
