: I have read a few postings regarding the fate of engagement rings and the "arbitrary" duty fees imposed by the Customs Agents at the Odessa Airport. I guess I am looking for some solid advice here. Obviously, I don't want to "Not" claim this piece on my Declaration Form upon entry. But, what course of action should realistically be taken and how high could an "arbitrary" duty fee go?
I took a diamond engagement ring thru customs in Dnipropetrovs'k about a year ago and asked them if I must declair this and they asked if it was a gift and told me to go thru with no duties?
Hope this helps
