Alex asks: I have dual citizenship - Ukrainian and Australian. My name in Australian passport is Alexei. However, in Ukrainian passport it is Oleksiy. It was translated this way from Russian. Will this be a problem when I fly to Ukraine, since there is a mismatch of the name? Sometimes you need to show both passports, especially with Airlines who check that you have a valid visa, etc.
Expert's answer:
Slight variations in the spelling of a name are usually tolerated and are rarely a problem, although such a situation can't be ruled out. Also, since Ukraine doesn't recognize dual citizenship, you need to be careful when interacting with its officials, as your Australian citizenship can serve as a reason for depriving you of Ukrainian citizenship (in practice, it rarely happens, but there is still such a risk). I think that the best option is to enter Ukraine on Ukrainian documents and leave the country on an Australian citizen's passport.
