Customs clearance is a set of measures that any cargo and goods are required to pass when moving across the customs borders of Belarus (as a member of the Eurasian Economic Union) during their import and export, regardless of the method of transportation of the cargo. A cargo owner must submit to the state customs authorities a correctly and competently completed declaration for goods and a set of documents confirming the correctness of the stated information. Inaccuracies in filling out the documents are fraught with unpleasant financial consequences from protracted cargo keeping in the temporary storage warehouse to fines in accordance with the legislation of the Eurasian Economic Union.

Import customs clearance

Usually, goods are imported for the purpose of free circulation (for domestic consumption). Customs release declaration must be submitted so that goods can be freely used on the territory of Belarus and the EAEU.

To submit this type of customs declaration, the following documents are required:

  • Contract
  • Invoice or Invoice Proforma
  • Bill of lading (depending on the type of transport, this can be Air Waybill, CMR or Rail Waybill)

Sometimes additional documents may also be required:

  • Contract Appendices, if they contain information essential for registration.
  • Information about transaction registration in the case, when a contract is concluded for an amount exceeding 3000 euros.
  • Packing Lists in the case, when it is impossible to establish the net weight of goods from the shipping documents.
  • Certificates or declarations of conformity, if products subject to mandatory certification under the EAEU legislation.
  • Bill for transportation, insurance, loading / unloading in accordance with the terms of delivery specified in the contract.
  • Documents confirming the price of the goods (export declarations, assessment by experts of the Chamber of Commerce, etc.) Also documents confirming benefits and preferences, if any.

These documents can be provided in the form of certified papers or electronic copies. Exceptions are certificates and declarations of conformity, as well as documents confirming benefits and preferences. They must be submitted to the customs clearance authorities only in the prescribed certified paper form.

On the basis of the provided documents, BELVIAT specialists calculate customs payments and, after paying them, submit a declaration. In most cases, the presence of your representative at the customs terminal is not required. After considering the declared information, customs officials make a decision on the release of the goods. In certain cases, they may conduct customs inspection of the cargo or request additional documents.
