When crossing the Ukrainian border you may be asked for a medical insurance
valid in Ukraine. Despite you have a valid insurance in your country, you have
to buy an Ukrainian one. This kind of insurance can be obtained from Ukrainian
customers at the border and costs about 20 HRN (4 EUR). The insurance covers
only very simple medical treatment in Ukraine, while the insurance issued in
your country can help you in more complicated cases.
Please do not however be surprised if you are not asked at the border for an insurance.
