Currency exchange: The Hryvnia is the only legal tender. According to the Ukrainian law foreign currency should only be exchanged at official bureaux (exchanges). Exchanges are numerous and easy to locate. Large shops offer their own exchange facilities.

   Credit cards 


Major European and international credit cards, including American Express, Visa and MasterCard, are accepted in the larger hotels and at big shops and expensive restaurants. Hundreds of ATM'S in Odessa are now accepting EC cards together with your PIN number - if you want to get Hryvnya. Compared to most other possibilities of getting Hryvnia, this is a cheap (compared to credit cards) and time saving (compared to travellers cheques) method. Depending on the Ukrainian bank that maintains the cash machine, you may be charged a 1% - 3% commission fee, on top of what your credit card charges.


Computers / Internet


 The State Customs Committee has stated that there are no restrictions on bringing laptop computers into the Ukraine for personal use. 


Medical facilities


Medical care is usually below Western standards. Access to the few quality facilities that exist in major cities usually requires cash payment at Western rates upon admission. The U.S. Embassy and consulates maintain lists of such facilities and English-speaking doctors. Tap water is not to be drunk without first boiling.
Commercial medical company Into-Sana :
local tel. 10-62
  tel +380 (482) 30-75-00

Traffic 


 Lack of routine maintenance of roads and vehicles make road conditions throughout Ukraine highly variable. Drivers and pedestrians should exercise extreme caution to avoid accidents, which are common place.
