Passenger customs declaration for express cargo amended

The Eurasian Economic Commission's Board has approved amendments aimed at improving the procedure for filling out the customs document when declaring goods for personal use delivered to natural persons as express cargo.

The approved amendments envisage adding a new line and procedure for filling it out to the form of a passenger customs declaration for express cargo. The new line will specify information on the actual location of goods.

"The amendments shall make it possible to identify the goods location in order to efficiently implement the remote release technology," mentioned Eldar Alisherov, EEC Minister in charge of Customs Cooperation. "Taken together, this will enable optimizing the documentation procedure for the said cargo category and reducing costs for businesses."

The project is a logical continuation of the comprehensive work conducted by the Commission's customs unit to improve the customs administration of express cargo and the formation of a modern legal framework on this issue.
