: I have read in various reports that Medical Insurance has to be purchased when arriving in Ukraine, and then you have to register somewhere within 3 days. Is this law upheld rigorously? If I don't register in 3 days what are the chances of being fined and how much?
You can not avoid buying the medical insurance, as you have to do that on the way in, right at the airport, and it doesn't cost much from what i know.
Registration: for now it's a regular rule for everyone. You have to get registered with OVIR within three working days (doesn't include Sat, and Sunday's and all of the official holidays). People say that there is a law that will come into effect on the 1st of July which will basically change the procedure of registration, in other words they will either register you right at the airport, or do something else, - but on this part I`m not sure, because I haven't read the law itself yet.
The chances for you to get fined depend on your appearance, behaviour, and the mood of the policemen :) do you want to rely on that??
I hope that answers the question.
With best wishes,
