With the security situation in Ukraine remaining unpredictable due to the threat of a Russian invasion, the United States has opened a Welcome Center in Przemysl for U.S. citizens leaving Ukraine by land. 

According to the U.S. Embassy in Ukraine, the security situation in Ukraine could deteriorate without warning.

U.S. citizens can now enter Poland across the land border with Ukraine. The diplomats clarified that this would not require prior permission.

“We recommend that those traveling to Poland by land from Ukraine cross the border at the Korczowa-Krakovets or Medyka-Shehyni border crossings. The U.S. Embassy has opened a Welcome Center near these border crossings to assist U.S. citizens entering Poland from Ukraine.”

The diplomats also clarified that in most cases, U.S. citizens leaving Ukraine have to present a valid U.S. passport and proof of COVID-19 vaccination. Travelers are also advised to submit a negative PCR test result or rapid COVID-19 test as early as possible.
