Hello everyone. I have been traveling to Ukraine since 3 years traveling from Denmark every time.I was deported for less then a month ago with my danish passport and quarantined with 90 days. After now just 20 days deportation I want to enter with my Turkish passport to Ukraine. Since I am traveling from Denmark I will only be showing my danish passport when I am exiting Denmark. ThereFore there will be no stamp on my Turkish passport when I will try to enter Ukraine .Will the immigration officer ask where I have been to or they are not supposed to ask for that ? Could they be sceptic in immigration and custom control???

You can risk it or not. If they realise you are an overstayer, you'll be blacklisted on two passports at best, detained at their pleasure at worst. Nobody knows what an immigration officer will ask. Why the repeated trips to the Ukraine?

>Will the immigration officer ask where I have been to or they are not supposed to ask for that ?

All immigration officers have the absolute right to ask where you have been, just as they have the absolute right to ask any other question.

>Could they be sceptic in immigration and custom control???

Of course they could be both sceptical and suspicious about your behaviour and motives....and they have the absolute right to question you in detail about both.

No-one here or anywhere else can tell you what data Ukraine (or any other country) holds on dual-passport holders, especially those who are EU citizens.

Overstaying in Ukraine...or anywhere...is *really* not a good idea. You were lucky to be banned for only 90 days: I suspect the ban was only so short because you used your EU passport.

As Borisborough says, only you can decide whether to risk it or to wait out the rest of the 90 days. If you are caught out you could end up banned from Ukraine for a much longer period of time...even permanently.....on both passports. You can also be fined, as can anyone who helps you overstay e.g. the person you stayed with.

You must be really desperate to get back into Ukraine to break their rules like this. Ukrainian immigration officers are the only thing that make US immigration officers seem cheerful.

You got away very lightly from your overstay, with a 3 month ban. If you don't respect the ban and wait it out, you are going to end up never being allowed into Ukraine again. Since you are so eager to be there, perhaps that thought will make you pause.

Are your fingerprints on file from previous visit to Ukraine or by INTERPOL??
