Story: How I was taking the Permit to Ukraine/Romania border (Marmarosh/Carpathian Mountains))

At first time I was thinking that it is very seriously to walk on UA/RU
border. if I with my friends don't have a permit - border guards
with guns will take us to prison (by law - 15 days to clarify the purpose of illegal border crossings).
A month before the trip I phoned to Mukachevo squad and sent them
a fax with the permit application with passport data of all participants
in my group and informed about our trek.
After two weeks I phoned them again and asked about my permit,
they said that my application was considered--everything is good and the permission sent to border office in Dilove :)
...01.05.2010 We was in Dilove. When I came into office Department of Border Services, they asked me:
"Have you phoned to Mukachevo squad and did they gave you a permit ?"
I said "Yes, they sent it to your office"
The border guards was looking to some documents...and said after minute:
"Is not here"...(I was worry )...But if you give to us 50 UAH donation - we will give you a permit!"
I said "Ok, but I have only 30 UAH..."(Of course I know that they
want get some money, another tourists said to me before I came to this "office")
...they gave me a permit, but it was look like copied piece of paper...

Very useful

info, but I am affraid it applies to all Ukrainian citizens. Hikers from other countries are considered as "PERSONA NON GRATA". What a pity....
