We are pleased to inform you that IFG is open to our patients at this unfavorable Covid-19 time for travel and long-term treatment. During patient visits and in daily work, we follow all the norms specified in the Ministry of Health to avoid the risks of the disease.
In order to enter Ukraine:
- Passengers must have a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken at most 72 hours before arrival.
- Passengers must have insurance to cover medical expenses in Ukraine. You can find out the details of where it can be issued from our patient coordinator.
*To confirm the medical reason for your arrival, our agency for patients prepares a letter - confirmation. Where our contacts are listed and in which case, we will be able to confirm the reason for your arrival.
As of 19.05.2021, visitors do not need to be quarantined in compliance with the above rules.
Planning treatment programs.
It is not necessary for patients to be in Ukraine to start the treatment process. We are ready to conduct initial consultations with doctors and coordinators remotely in a messenger convenient for you.
In order to prepare all the necessary tests, patients can contact their doctor and give him our official request / referral to help them organize this process. Also, if possible, we provide contacts of doctors with whom we cooperate in different countries.
Contracts are signed remotely. And at the time of your arrival, we will ask patients to sign a contract by hand.
According to the type of program chosen, patients will need to come for 2-6 days. For their safety, we arrange a transfer from the airport to their place of stay.
And to return as well. For on-site travel, we recommend choosing accommodation close to the clinic to be able to reach the clinic on foot. If not, then we recommend using taxis for their safety. Of course, in public places we ask to wear masks and disinfect hands.
Is it safe to plan the vaccine before an IVF program?
The Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) have recently updated their guidance on priority groups for COVID-19 vaccinations, which includes a section on pregnancy and those trying to become pregnant. Vaccination in pregnancy should be considered where the risk of exposure to COVID-19 infection is high and cannot be avoided, or where the woman has underlying conditions that put them at very high risk of serious complications of COVID-19. In these circumstances, clinicians should discuss the risks and benefits of vaccination with the woman, who should be told about the absence of safety data for the vaccine in pregnant women. The RCOG recommends that individual risk factors be taken into account in pregnant women.
If you have been advised to have the Covid-19 vaccine and have any concerns or questions, please speak to your fertility consultant or doctor for further advice. We constantly follow the news in this direction and provide our patients with up-to-date information.
Please contact us in case of any questions.
