The “customs visa exemption regime” comes into force in Ukraine

On October 1, 2022, the Convention on Common Transit entered into force in Ukraine.

The relevant statement was made by the Ukrainian Ministry of Finance, reports a correspondent of Ukrinform.

“On October 1, 2022, the provisions of the Common Transit Convention entered into force for Ukraine, and companies were able to transport goods internationally to 35 other member states, using a single document of transit,” the report said.

The first transit declaration created under the “visa-free customs regime” was sent today from Germany to Ukraine. Customs officers can already see it in the new Computerized Transit System (NCTS) and are waiting for a truck to arrive.

The Ukrainian side also created the first transit declaration. A number of other declarations in the system now await the arrival of the goods at the customs office of departure. These goods will be placed under the common transit procedure and delivered to the customs office of destination in the member states of the convention.

According to the Ministry of Finance of Ukraine, under the “customs visa exemption regime”, a single transit document is presented to transport goods from one country to another: from the customs office of departure to the office of destination customs. This speeds up customs formalities at the border and reduces the corresponding costs for businesses.
