The warning was given earlier today, but now we have the official announcement and more detail that Chernobyl will not be accepting any visitors until 20th March 2022.
The State Agency of Ukraine for Exclusion Zone Management reports that in connection with the special regime of transportation of spent nuclear fuel, as well as preventive measures to respond to emergencies of natural and man-made nature within the project U4.01 / 18B “Modernization of dosimetric control system in the area of alienation and monitoring of the environment (radiation) at the Complex “Vector” and RWR “Buryakivka”, the agency decided to temporarily, from February 20, 2022 to March 20, 2022, to suspend visits to the exclusion zone, except for visits by persons whose activities are related to the performance of state functions, as well as production needs.
It’s better news than was originally anticipated – the initial warning was that it could be for up to two months or even longer.
This does not have any impact on Kyiv Tours.
If you have a tour booked, we will be contacting you to discuss options. Those with tours booked soonest will be contacted first.
