The flight is fully booked, however, the State Department notes that all those who did not have time and still want to leave Ukraine during the coronavirus crisis should inform the agency by e-mail. They will be listed for a potential next flight, or they will be provided with special instructions for action.

Passengers will need to reimburse the U.S. government for the flight after their return, and they must sign a promissory note before boarding, the U.S. Embassy in Kyiv said. They will also be responsible for any arrangements or costs (lodging, onward destination from Dulles or local transportation, etc.) beyond their initial destination in the U.S.
