Hi all. I Having just returned from Russia to be with my g/f we now wish in early December wish to travel to Kiev for two weeks to spend time with her daughter.
Being a UK citizen I understand that no visa is required for this. Are there any other differences between traveling to Ukraine and Russia. For example do you still have a migration card to fill out on the plane? Because of no visa then I assume no need to register or do I have to do anything else instead?
Having never been to Ukraine before not sure what the rules are and don't wish to fall foul or have any nasty surprises.
Thanks for help.

Hi Gaz,

When i landed at Kiev nearly 3 years ago there was a migration card to fill out and take through passport control. Keep this in your passport for when you leave.
There's no registration.

Hi Gaz

On your flight to kiev ask the trolley Jolly (flight attendant) to give you a landing card and fill it to be ready on arrival to join the long queues on the immigration desks. You don't have to register with OVIR. That is all.

You can import up to $3000 USD cash without declaring but over this limit you have to make a declaration to the customs, if you want to take it back out.

Any how in Ukraine there are ATM machines everywhere..... but if you have British pounds you May have a problem exchanging it in some areas.

Enjoy your trip.

I was in Kiev 4 times last year, landed at Borispol, no immigration card is needed, just get off the plane, into a queue for non UA, you'll get a stamp inyour passport, and another when you leave, simple, oh , then try and dodge the taxi drivers.

nothing is required. the same countries of the former Soviet Union. between them, as before, a visa-free regime. enough to buy a ticket when crossing the border need to fill in a migration card and everything!

Was at Kiev in March and did not need visa or any migration cards so a lot easier
