Taking more than $1,000 into Ukraine?

Jump to last reply

I'm leaving for Ukraine in 3 weeks, staying there in 3 different cities (Kiev, Lugansk, Odessa) for 2 weeks, and don't think $1,000 will be enough. I have read somewhere that $1,000 USD is the max allowed to be taken into the country. Can anyone tell me the rules concerning this? Can I, in fact, take more than $1,000? What takes place if I do, and I claim it upon entry? If I need more money while there, where can I get it and what credit cards are accepted? What is the best place to exchange currency? I've been to many other countries, and there are always places with better exchange rates than others. Is Ukraine like this? Is it better to carry cash, traveller's checks, or a combo? Where can I cash/use traveller's checks? Do they take a cut/percentage for using them? Any positive responses are greatly appreciated.
