Questions and answers:

Khaled asks: Currently I'm in the process of having a student visa from my home country in Egypt but I'm living in Kuwait and I have sent my passport to get the visa stamped. Is it okay for me to travel to Ukraine from other country than where I got my visa from?
Expert's answer:
If you have valid documents (your passport and Ukrainian visa), you shouldn't have any problem entering Ukraine.
Pratap asks: Like to know about the public transport from Zaporozhya to Kiev Borispil airport journey time and frequency.
Expert's answer:
There are regular daily trains running from Zaporozhye to Kyiv, the trip takes about 7-10 hours, the ticket price is about 10-20 USD. Our advice is not to send any help to a person in Ukraine, before you are absolutely sure that this person is real. You should arrange your live meeting in Ukraine (in Kyiv). A real person can do it without your help, a fake one will find a number of issues why it is not possible or your help is required to do it. Otherwise you are doing it on your risk.
Mark asks: I have a package in the Ukraine and it's lost in the system I sent from the US.
Expert's answer:
According to this tracking service the last known stop was in the US. Maybe it stuck somewhere in the port of Europe, especially when you consider that this is the time of transport strikes in France.
Galyna asks: I am originally Ukrainian and got American citizenship in 2015. I have Ukrainian passport and trying to find out what I should do about it. Should I return it? If yes, how? I am going to Ukraine to visit my family and I want to make sure that there would no issues with having Ukrainian passport.
Expert's answer:
If you don't terminate your Ukrainian citizenship yourself, Ukraine considers you to be its citizen and you can visit the country with Ukrainian documents, if they are not expired. Ukraine doesn't recognize dual citizenship. However, you will not have problems if you use documents proving that you are a US citizen to visit Ukraine without a visa, but in this case your stay should not exceed 90 days in 180 days period. So if you want to stay longer and don't want to obtain a Ukrainian visa, you can enter Ukraine as a Ukrainian citizen (with valid Ukrainian international passport) and leave it as a citizen of the US to return to the US without problems. Here are the contacts of the embassy of Ukraine to the US, which can issue a new international passport if you need one.

Lydia asks: I am starting phd in Ukraine by February 2020, I wish to know if my husband and children can be allowed to join me later.
Expert's answer:
When in Ukraine, as an international student, you will have a temporary residence permit. According to Ukrainian legislation, a foreigner who has received a temporary residence permit in Ukraine has the right to invite a family on the basis of family reunification and receive all the necessary documents for residence. Contact people from the following official site about studying in Ukraine to get more info.
Robert asks: Can an American travel from Kiev to Severodonetsk? I have heard there was military blockaids and check stations that make it difficult.
Expert's answer:
The city of Sievierodonetsk is controlled by Ukrainian officials, you can freely visit it as a foreigner. There are regular buses running from Kyiv to Sievierodonetsk. If this is about meeting with someone there, then as an alternative you can offer a meeting in Kyiv, coming there is not a problem for a person in Ukraine, unless of course this is a real person. Also, you shouldn't help anyone in Ukraine until you are absolutely sure of the existence of this person.
Phil asks: Is it safe to travel to Pavlohrad and surrounding areas. We hope to fly from Kiev to Pavlohrad and then take a taxi to my father's ancestral village in Oleksandrovka. Which airline is best to take from Kiev to Pavlohrad?
Expert's answer:
It is safe to go to this part of Ukraine. You can't fly from Kyiv to Pavlohrad, there are no such flights available. But you can fly from Kyiv (Boryspil Airport) to Dnipro located about 77 km from Pavlohrad. There are at least two places in this area with the name of Oleksandrivka. The first one is located near Dnipro, the second one, which looks completely abandoned, is located near Pavlohrad. You can reach both of them by taxi from Dnipro.
