About what advice you offer.
There absolutely, positively *IS* a law that requires citizens of Ukraine to have official permission to reside outside the borders of Ukraine.
That *may* change in the future, but as of this date (April 14, 2003) the law is still valid.
If you are unaware of this - fine - just do NOT give people inaccurate and misleading advice. It is wrong and it can prove VERY destructive if you mislead someone!
: Katya, there is no such law. But to be absolutely sure the easiest way is contacting the nearest Ukraine consulate - they must provide you with valid information.
: : I am travelling to Ukraine on 26 of July. But I was told that as an ex-ukrainian citizen I will be arrested at the airport as I do not have an exit visa. I have left Ukraine in November 1993 with my husband who is British. We have met and married in Simferopol and I have entered UK with an ordinary tourist visa as it was too much trouble to obtain another one. I have not gone back in 10 years and this year will go with my British Passport. I never had an exit visa and never even been to the Ukrainian Embassy in London. Please help! Do I need this blasted visa or not? I will be travelling with my 8 yo daughter and obviously do not want any problems.
: : Thanks.
: : Katerina.
