The UK Foreign Office revised its travel advisory for Ukraine, softening the restrictions on UK citizens traveling to the country’s western regions. The updated advisory was published on May 3.

The Foreign Office advises UK nationals to avoid “all but essential” travel to Ukraine’s Lviv, Volyn, Rivne, and Zhytomyr oblasts, while maintaining a distance of no less than 50 kilometers from the Belarus border in the north.

The updated travel advisory map now looks like this:

The message also notes that “essential” travel to Zakarpattya, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ternopil, and Chernivtsi was allowed since January 2024.

The UK government continues to recommend against all travel to the remaining areas of Ukraine.
