What should tourists do in Odessa Ukraine

Welcome to the website of the Federal Foreign Office

The Measures to contain the corona pandemic in Ukraine are currently valid until June 30th, 2021 and are tightened in several regions depending on the situation.

Mass events are prohibited. A mask requirement still applies nationwide in closed rooms with public traffic. In so-called "red zones", masks must also be used in public places (e.g. in parks or playgrounds) if a distance of 1.5 m to other people cannot be maintained.

Several regions of Ukraine are classified as 'red zones', which has led to a tightening of the pandemic rules. Please inform yourself in the media or with the authorities of your whereabouts according to the currently valid local rules.
