After Ukraine’s Cabinet of Ministers greenlighted new vaccine mandate for domestic travel sector, ‘Ukrzaliznytsia’ railway company has released a set of new guidelines for travelers amid the new wave of COVID-19.

Apart from general rules like keeping masks on in railway stations and trains, passengers in ‘yellow’ and ‘red’ zones will be required to have a vaccination certificate or a negative test though granting exemption to  under-18s.

According to the policy the railway operator must check proof of vaccination before passengers board a train.

‘Ukrzaliznytsia’ will also ensure its employees have vaccination certificates or negative tests.
