New members of the Ukraine forum, introduce yourself here – 2017

Hi all,

Newbie on the Ukraine forum? Don’t know how to start?

This thread is for you ;)

We invite you to introduce yourself on this topic, to share with us your expat story if you are already living in the country, or to tell us more on your expat projects in Ukraine if you are planning to move there.

It will enable us to help you better but above all to wish you a warm welcome.

Welcome on board!

PD : The thread New members of the Ukraine forum, introduce yourself here – 2016 continues below!

I followed the thread.  To help you out, I did the process in May 2014.  I brought all of my documents from the United States, notarized and with an apostille from your secretary of state from the state you live in.  Make sure everything is correct.  Divorce papers, court house for no criminal record.  You can get cheap medical insurance here.  Will never use it, but you need to have it.  Cost about 1,000 UAH.

I did not have to return to the United States, I brought all of my documents and I went to the Ukrainian Embassy in Moldova.  We were there for three days.  I received my Visa D from the Ukrainian Embassy in Moldova.  They were friendly and happy.  MAKE SURE ALL OF YOUR DOCUMENTS ARE CORRECT.  ALL NOTARIZED AND  APOSTILLE.

The biggest issue is dealing with OVIR in the city you will be living in Ukraine.  But you do not need to return to the states.  Have your wife call the Ukrainian Embassy in Moldova.  they will also give her information.  Many Americans have gone the route I have gone.

If you are European, you live closer to your own countries.  Go home and do it.  For Americans, go to Moldova for your Visa D.

Hi. I'm coming to Kiev this summer and I'm looking for English speaking Ukrainians or Brits to show me around a little and perhaps get a few drinks and show me the nightlife...

Hello. I lived in Ukraine for couple years and I am turning back. I had enough amount of time with so called "femens" and "anarchists". It wasn't honest as it seemed from the outside thou. So I left those groups. After years of forwards and backwards, I have left couple friends who lives in Kyiv. I have decided to live in the woods of Kyiv this time with less amount of need of people. I have got to say Ukraine has an amazing nature. I was told Turkey have one of the best nature in the region at summers but when I became an expat and discovered summer in Ukraine, it was priceless. Even though all the economical and political crisis going on for years already, I would prefer Ukraine over Turkey. As I will do very soon. Wish me luck!
