Hello Everyone,
Tomorrow my fiancee and her son will depart for the US. I brought her engagement ring with me into Ukraine when I arrived. Is there any kind of declaration that we have to make when when we depart? She is concerned that she may have problems returning to Ukraine with her ring.
Thanks,
Grid

Hey!

My ex-fiance also brought me a ring when he came to visit me. I have never had any problems going to US and back to Ukraine with the ring. I have never filled any papers. I think there should be no problems concerning the ring!

Good luck to you guys!!!

Unless the ring looks like the Hope diamond you shouldn't have any problems. I don't think I have ever heard of the customs people bothering someone about their rings.

Good luck with the rest of your journey.

Don't worry about it. She is wearing the ring, correct? They won't ask anything about it. It would be regarded as personal jewelry.

What if I am bringing a ring to her, through customs? They ask about jewelery specificall every time in Odessa, and I have been told it is because they want to tax the s##t out of any jewelery you bring.

Last time through in July in Odessa I got asked nothing.... Each time before that I was asked about money/gifts & gold. Maybe that have changed there focus. This time through was the first time my luggage was loaded with gifts.... There loss....

They never seemed to care about alcohol or any other gifts, but they do ask every time about jewelery. I get hassled about money 50% of the time, but gift jewelery seems to be a constant point of interest.

My question is what happens if I disclose that I have a ring? What is the tax? My sense is it is probably as much as the entrepenurial customs agents can get. If I don't disclose it and they find it, what is it going to cost me?
