Hotel accommodation will remain open under the current COVID-19 quarantine rules, but safety and availability will be severely affected by the ongoing invasion. Hostels are only allowed to open in yellow, orange or red zones if all staff and guests are vaccinated. Hotel restaurants are subject to the same rules as other restaurants and are likely to require a vaccination certificate or negative Covid test for all guests. If you are staying in a hotel, you must respect the general rules regarding masks and minimum distance. If possible, check in online in advance to avoid queues at the hotel. Travellers arriving in Ukraine or passing through administrative points from parts not controlled by the government of Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts, as well as from Crimea, are subject to health surveillance upon arrival. They should comply with any additional verification measures taken by the authorities.
