Well I have joined the matchmaker service of KC and I plan to visit Kiev in the near future.
Can someone share the experiences how to have a smooth entry into Kiev, through the red custom line? I know we/tourists bring cash over the $100 amount. In particular, what are they looking, asking for? How can I make my experience through the airport easy. What do I say is my reason for visiting Kiev?? Any advice will be appreciated.
FYI - I am an American :D


Thank you
Silverninja

I've been through the red customs channel because I had more than $1000 dollars with me. I had no problems at all. I've also been through the green channel with more than a $1000 dollars on me, but didn't declare I had over $1000, and still had no problems. As the for the reason you are visiting Ukraine/Kiev, the answer is probably going to be 'tourism'.

Customs in Kiev is much friendlier now and much better. You can now go through the green line if you have $14,000.00 or less in currency.

I was wondering, if you send $ by Western Union, can you collect it from the bank if you are not a Ukraine citizen? Or just to bring traveler's checks, as it's not cash... If yes, than you won't be restricted to a certain amount of $ you can bring...

But, being limited to a certain $ amount is not a bad idea - there are a looot of temptations to spend your hard-earned money...:-))) :lol:

You can collect money by Western Union in Ukraine but it is an expensive transaction.

Travelerís checks are counted the same as cash with customs.

You are restricted to $14,000.00 to use the green customs line. If you have more than $14,000.00 you need to fill out a customs declaration and use the Red line.

Are we talking dollar value in US dollars or dollar value in any currency? Sorry, I just want to make I understand :)

Thanks

It is dollar value of all currencies and monetary units you have with you. As an example: You can have $13,000.00 cash and $1,000.00 American Express travelerís checks.

If you had Euros you could bring in approximately 10,000 Euros.
