You are absolutely correct Russo, most scammer tend to leave you alone once they know you've lived here a few years, or married to a ukraine wife. Since they know she has probably taught you a thing or two. Also, if you tend to hand out in the tourist bubble, and never venture out, then you will be bombarded with scammers. Most of the foreigners I know that live here in Nikolaev, stay in the tourist bubble and never venture out to the real salt of the earth Ukrainians, this is where you can really find some good Ukrainian friends, and good wholesome ukraine girl. But most foreigners stay inside the tourist bubble, and wonder why all they find are scammers.

1. A Bolivian resident must apply for a visa to visit Ukraine. That visa is good for only one month. What is your plan for staying longer?
2. Yes, you can survive in Ukraine only knowing English if you have a circle of friends in Ukraine who will help you when you need an interpreter. No friends - no fun.
3. If you plan to live in a foreign country, then plan to learn enough of the language to survive.
4. Why do you think Ukraine would be a good place to live? It sounds like you have a fantasy notion that Ukraine is something like Nirvana. You need to do more homework.
5. Many of us on this forum either live in Ukraine permanently (married to a Ukrainian woman) or spend several months out of the year there. In either case, we have no illusions.
6. Ukraine is no paradise. It is a corrupt, desperately poor country at war with its neighbor. As a new visitor, all you will meet is scammers who will happily separate you from your money. It is not until you live there for some time that you break through the layer of scammers and meet some really nice people.

Immigration laws here are changing by the month, go to ukraine immigration website for the latest information, if you ask people who live here how to immigrate, you will get as many answers as people you ask, because of how fast the laws change, this country reinvent itself every six months, it's growing out of the old Soviet system and trying to get in board with EU. But I'll tell you that the fastest route to immigration is to marry a ukraine citizen, or I have heard through a ukraine police friend if mine, 2000$ will buy you a citizenship, if you're already here living legally. Bare in mind, everything is slowly becoming computerized and linked together. I know one ukraine friend of mine that could get a permanent resident permit for 500$ has said he can only do this 2 times a year, because of the the new system, and soon it will be impossible when all the immigration office in each oblast are linked together with Kiev
