The Ukrainian Cabinet of Ministers has made changes to the list of categories of foreigners who are not prohibited from entering Ukraine.
The new rule cancels the exception that allows foreigners to travel on transit through Ukraine, the Interfax Ukraine news agency reports, citing the Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs.
The only foreigners exempted from the entry ban are spouses, parents, children, grandmothers, and grandfathers of Ukrainian citizens.
For foreigners traveling to Ukraine to study, only those planning to study in higher education institutions will be allowed to enter the country.
As previously reported, the Cabinet of Ministers has closed Ukraine’s borders to foreign citizens until September 28. The entry ban does not apply to foreigners with Ukrainian residence permits, members of international and humanitarian missions, truck drivers, military instructors from NATO member countries, cultural figures invited by cultural institutions, and a number of other categories of foreigners.
