I don't believe you have to declare under $1,000 when you enter the Ukraine, so taking less than $1,000 when leaving should not be a problem - Should there be a problem it would help to present proof of ATM withdrawals in the Ukraine. Remember you cannot take out more than 85 hr in Ukrainian currency. If you have serious concerns then Western Union the money to yourself in Canada.
Wear as much of the jewelry as possible and declare the rest as gifts of minimum/sentimental value, or claim it as part of your own personal wear, if that is believable, but obviously if you have two kilos of gold chains and the jewelry is not your size ...or if it looks like works of art/national treasures there might be a problem
: Hi all!
: I'll be leaving Ukraine back to Canada and will appreciate any advice you can give concerning what I can take back with me as I did no declare any cash when entering the country. I had credit cards with me.
: I am ukrainian without the National Passport, only international and my kid is Canadian. I have 6 necklaces/chain, 5 finger rings, 3 earrings, 1 men finger ring and 1 bracelet. Will I have problem taking them out? They are not new. They are gifts from relatives.
: And one more question, is my child also allowed the $1000 limit to take out of the country or as a foreigner she is not allowed. What can she take with her free of charge.
: Thanks for your help and sorry for my questions.
