Crimea's borders
« on: June 16, 2020, 01:59:09 PM »
I just saw on the internet that Crimea/Ukraine borders are open. There is a requirement for self isolation for 14 days upon entering Ukraine.

Any further news?

why would you want to cross to/from Crimea to Ukraine?
normally you're gonna land in Moscow and then fly to Simferopol
of course now you could take a bus or train from Rostov as well
but that's SLOW!

If you enter or leave Crimea from any country other than Ukraine, you are breaking the laws of Ukraine. If you also happen to be a citizen of Ukraine, you could get into deep trouble.

I know  loads of people entering Crimea via Moscow and changing flights to Simferopol ..

I'm not sure HOW the SBU would know ?

IF you are a citizen you simply get a 'Dozvril'.

We have a friend living in Sochi, who went to visit family in Kherson ( stuck there at the mo ) and has entered Crimea via Donbas, crossing into govt. controlled areas via bus and Marshrutkas ..

We'll be back, EU ..and as a certain 'gentleman' couldn't accept my offer to 'bury the hatchet' .. Don't trust a clueless Californian 'business owner' who cannot even quote me, honestly ..

Russians don't put any KRIM sticker in your passport, so if you land in Moscva, that's all Ukraine is EVER gonna see on your passport
I have Permanent Residency and a Moscva registered address
I was there recently, flew into Moscow and then Simferopol
the only thing that Russian passport control will put on your American passport/visa is a Domodedovo Airport stamp like this or whatever other airport you deal with...
you don't want to do the border crossing with Ukraine up north near Kherson
too much time and hassle, and what would be the point?
for Russia you need a visa, but no big deal

My Wife tells me that the borders were closed yesterday until 31 July 2020.

Does anyone have information about that?

Her passport with SB-1 visa attached is being held at the US Embassy, Kyiv. There is no possible way to send it to Crimea, so she must enter Ukraine to get it.

I don't know if there are any international flights going out of Moscow to USA.

UIA Airlines has some repatriation flights from Kyiv direst to NYC. The next one is 22 June. She would not enter other countries. She has both Ukrainian and Russian passports.

I don't know how they can enforce the 14 day self quarantine with a cell phone app. It seems you could just leave the phone behind and take the loss. It could only be a few hundred dollars. Once you board the plane, what are they going to do, turn the plane around?

so why can't the embassy MAIL her passport to her or to you?
I get stuff from Ukraine through DHL almost every month! perfectly fine with tracking even!

or are you tryin to tell me your wife is in Crimea
but somehow you're processing her in Kyiv?
how's that even possible?
it would mean she's a Ukrainian livin in Crimea
which is a legal purgatory
she either has to be Ukrainian and go live in Ukraine
or become a Russian citizen and live in Crimea
and do her processing in Moscow, where her Krim address makes NO DIFFERENCE AT ALL
otherwise, yeah, ya got a little problem
but you needed to fix this before and NOT now...
cuz now, it's too late to say you're sorry...

The US Embassy in Kyiv uses TMM-EXPRESS and they don't deliver to Crimea.

The wait time for a visa interview in Moscow is extremely long. Some Russian Citizens are going to the Kyiv embassy instead to save much time.

Kyiv embassy does visas all the time for people in Crimea.

They need to buy  Android cell phones so the Ukrainian officials can put the self quarantine app on the phones.

Turkish Airlines has flights now from Kyiv to Istanbul, Istanbul to Chicago non-stop.

I don't think Russian airlines have international flights going yet.

UIA has some direct flights from KYIV to USA on a rolling basis.

crimea is now open!
at least from Moscow
maybe you could get the Kyiv embassy to forward the passport to someone like a friend or relative in Moscow, or other place in Russia
and they can forward it to her in Krim with no problem!
