Can I buy SIM card at KBP?
« on: 16:55 12-Dec-2017 »
It looks like Kyivstar canceled my SIM card, and I will need a phone as soon as I arrive in Ukraine.  [My American account doesn't have any roaming in Europe.]

Back in the days when I flew into BorySpil Terminal B, it was easy to buy SIM cards there ... but the fancy new Terminal D seems to have much less in the way of shops.

Has anybody seen SIMs on sale in Terminal D?

Not that I've seen. 

You'll most likely have to get one after you get to your hotel or have the cabbie stop enroute for you.

I had to ask a driver to call my (then) betrothed to see where she was as I had arrived almost an hour early last year.

Thanks, Tnic.  That's what I thought.  I'm booked into a flat, but I don't know how I'll rendezvous with the manager without a phone ...

Yes.  Right outside once you leave the baggage claim area

Agree -- have been for always as far as I know

Also at IEV - no problem

Have been able to pay credit to existing number at both airports
