100 Odessa’s hotels passed the Tourism Inspection testing

Odessa City Council Culture and Tourism Department announced that the amount of revenue from tourist tax in 2012 exceeded 2.6 million UAH in 2012.

On June 25, 2013, a briefing dedicated to the results of "Tourist Information Center of Odessa" Communal Establishment was held in Odessa City Council.
On June 5, 2012, “Odessa Touristic Informational Center” Communal Establishment was introduced in our city. In the center, every foreign tourist could get all the necessary information in Russian, Ukrainian and English languages, and it is planned to expand the language range in the nearest future.


Its main task is to provide the necessary information to tourists, as well as to promote tourism in the city of Odessa, support small business development in tourism infrastructure development and promote the tourism products in Odessa at the domestic and international markets.
According to Odessa City Council’s decision № 2165-VI from July 24, 2012, Odessa City Council of Culture and Tourism Department was determined to be the authorized body for signing of agreements on collecting the tourist tax.


The functions of Tourist Inspection Dept of "TIC Odessa" CE include inspection of the hotels, signing contracts to pay tourist tax, identifying defaulters and entrepreneurs engaged in illegal commercial activities in providing the tourists with short-stay places, as it is done in the largest cities of Germany, Spain, Uzbekistan, Ukraine etc.


Tourist tax is charged to every tourist in the amount of 1% of the hotel price in Odessa.


During the briefing, the Culture and Tourism Dept Head Tatyana Markova emphasized, “Thanks to the Tourism Inspection Dept’s work, almost 100 hotels out of Odessa’s 168 ones have already been inspected. The process of signing the agreements on collecting the tourist tax is continuing. This way, the Touristic Inspection is systematizing the touristic tax revenues inflow, thus increasing the city budget. Due to implementing the touristic tax, in 2011, the income into the local budget increased by UAH 1 600 000. As a result of the year 2012, Odessa budget received 2.6 million UAH from the tourist tax. The tourist season starts now, and new hotels, apartments and other residences are introduced in our city, what, in its turn, needs the Tourism Inspection Dept’s work to become more intense”.
