I am planing a trip to Ukraine and read about a proof of finance as an entry restriction for foreigners. The website of the german Auswärtiges Amt is mentioning that since 2013 every non ukrainian citizen visiting Ukraine has to verify that she/he has an income of 2300€ a month or at least 80€ per day in Ukraine + 400€. I would like to know how and how strict these conditions are checked when visiting Ukraine (I am german citizen).
I was in the Ukraine in May traveling on a Western European passport.
Upon entry, not a single question was asked. Not even purpose of visit or which regions I would visit. I simply got stamped in and that was that.
Based on this experience, I assume that it is not generally enforced and rarely checked. Probably they start asking this kind of things only when some red flags are raised. I was not even aware of the requirement and did not have the documentation on me to prove my financial situation.
