Tourists will have to pay 0.2-0.5% of the size of minimum wage for each day of stay in the city of Lviv. Percentage of the fee will depend on the cost of overnight stay (temporary accommodation): up to 350 UAH ($13,3) - 0.2%, from 350 - 750 UAH ($14-28,5) - 0.3%, 750-1200 UAH ($30-45,6) - 0.4% and for over 1200 UAH ($50) - 0.5%.
The cost of “temporary accommodation” or “overnight stay” means the total cost of a room (number), rent of an apartment, residential house or another residential real estate regardless of the number of guests.
This local government decision comes into force on April 1, 2019. Lviv municipality says that this way the tourist fees rates are brought in line with the Tax Code of Ukraine.
