    sending a package to Ukraine..

    I've heard in some former Soviet nations, that the government charges someone a tax fee or something for a package delivered to the person.

    Is this the case for the Ukraine, and if so, how much is this, generally?

    What are you sending ? It's usually good enough just to declare a much lower value than what the contents are worth. The customs people will be none the wiser.

    Well, I've found a service that will deliver flowers and maybe a small teddy bear to her on her birthday.

    So that's what I'd be doing.

    I've just heard stories about people sometimes having to go down to some office and pay on the value of the item. Not really sure if a delivered service would be the same affair or not.

    Duty is only charged on imports as they enter the country (usually in the mail, and I guess that the duty is paid at the post office in those cases), so if the items are being sent from within Ukraine, your friend won't have to pay anything.

    Thanks! Dyakuyu!

    I was hoping that was the case. I want to send her a nice floral arrangement, but now I may be able to do alittle more.

    Well, she's Ukrainian, and I plan to marry her.

    But nah.

    She's much better than a Ukrainian bride.

    Yes, we've been emailing for months, as friends first.

    Why the curiosity?

    Is it from such a site where pretty young East European women are looking for rich Western men?

    No, it isn't.

    Are you looking for a date?

    Sorry if I seem rude.

    Just wondering why how I met her matters at all.

    If you're opposed to internet based relationships, why comment?
