Safety while while traveling


Remember that to ensure a safe stay abroad, you should take care of reliable health insurance in advance, which will not only help you maintain your health but also protect you from unforeseen expenses. You can apply for an insurance policy covering emergency medical care in case of illness and accidents, as well as inpatient and outpatient care around the world on the Visit Ukraine website.

We remind you! Traveling to and from Ukraine is difficult due to the closed airspace, and therefore you can only cross the border by land. You can find more information about the trains that run between Ukraine and European countries that can help you get to your destination here.
