1) Taxes and Work Permission
You are supposed to work as a private entrepreneur. You need no work permission and free to declare you income towards the Ukrainian taxation authorities when staying less than a year in Ukraine.
US and EU citizens have visa free entrance and stay in Ukraine for 90 days. For longer periods you need visa issued through the Ukrainian embassies in your home country. We will provide you with the corresponding invitation.
3) Medical Care
General state medical care in Ukraine is rather poor. You get access to it through insuring with the state medical insurance company of Ukrinmedstrakh for app. 150 UAH per month. The insurance covers basic medical help. Be prepared to pay for medicine yourself. You will also have to pay for the treatment directly to the medical personal (well, bizarre, but still effective). Logically, no receipts. There are no official rates. Here are some experience values (orthopedic or comparable surgery- 1000-2000 UAH, stay in hospital- 100-150 UAH per day).
Thus it is advised to keep you native medical insurance to ensure full scale medical safety. In this case you can address private medical institutions. The costs are about 20-30% below that in Western Europe or the US. Private medical institutions offer better conditions and, which is important for reimburse, you will get fiscal receipt.
4)Coming with own car
Good idea as Ukraine has got really beautiful place to see. But rather not in winter. And according to the customs regulations you will have to leave the territory of Ukraine once a month. Well, a ride of 150 km to the next Belorussian border will suffice, but still be aware of that inconvenience. Fuel rates are 20% below of the west European.
5) Cost of Living
The rent is mostly fearful. You should count with 2000-4000 UAH for a room in a shared apartment, 3000- 6000 UAH for a one room apartment (low price range is attributed to acceptable dwelling based 1-1,5 hour of public transportation way away from the center and correspondingly from the school; high price range- to centrally based accommodation. The price level is rather pessimistic, but realistic. We wish you a better search.)
Up to 80% of accommodations for rent are operated by brokers. The broker fee is 50% of monthly rent. The school may recommend you a reliable English speaking broker.
