We are traveling to Kyiv for New Years. For Mrs DS it will be the first time using her new passport to travel home. That will be a novel experience. One question. Do we still need to carry paperwork ( permissions, etc) for the children even though they are not UKR nationals anymore? I think I know the answer already but some clarity would be helpful.

Yes!   As you know Nata has had a Brit passport for years now but we still carry all the necessary docs and have in the past had to produce them. To be honest if you enter and exit on a British passport you don,t get hassled as much as if you use a Ukrainian one, but they are not daft they know one probably has two passports and can be awkward if they get out of the wrong side of the bed that morning and they still don't recognise dual citizenship but keep quiet about that one  :-X

The ladies can chat if you need to know anything specific, mine has it all sorted.

PS how did your day trip go?
Thanks Chris. I thought that would the case.
We haven't been yet. Going this Saturday. To Bruge. Weather looks good so hope it'll be a pleasant day out and come back with some moreChristmas goodies.

Travelling to Kiev today. Usual  :censored: chaos. Delayed flights galore. Can't move in the departure lounge, it's so packed.
Got shafted by UiA. Couldn't check in online as the facility has been withdrawn at Gatwick. Got to the check in desk andcwas told I have to pay for my bag as the ticket I had purchased was a no baggage ticket. Funnily enough I had baggage on the return sector. Don't recall any options for with or without baggage. Between acrock and a hard place. They have you by the goolies. Paid 50 euros for the pleasure. Will argue the toss later. Doubt I'll ever see it refunded. Myst be a craftily concealed tick box somewhere. Bollocks.
