Niraj asks: Hello, I am dating a girl from Lugansk, she is saying that to get international passport it takes around 300$ as she will have to go to Kiev stay there for 1 day and apply for passport. Is it true will it cost around 300 $ for going to Kiev, staying in a hotel and passport fee?
Expert's answer:
The international bio-metric passport fee is about 20-30 USD, two bus tickets - about 60 USD, one night in a hotel - 20-40 USD. As we receive a lot of similar requests, our advice is not to send any help to a person in Ukraine, especially in parts of the Donetsk and Lugansk regions controlled by separatists like in your case, before you are absolutely sure that this person is real. At least talk to this person several times via Skype with a webcam turned on or better meet the person in Ukraine, in Kyiv or Kharkiv, for example. Otherwise you are doing it on your risk.
