TIR CARNETS CONTINUES IN THE TRAFFIC BETWEEN FINLAND AND RUSSIA

CLECAT has been informed by the Finnish Freight Forwarders Association on a note from Finnish Customs confirming that the TIR procedures can be started in Finland in the normal way also for TIR transports ending in Russia. Also transports arriving from Russia are handled normally, provided that the customs service of another country (for example Russia) has used a TIR customs guarantee document (TIR Carnet) as a transit document in its own territory.

According to information from Finnish border customs offices, TIR transports are moving through all border customs offices in the usual way, and the Russian authorities have not demanded any additional guarantees when the guarantee of 60 000 euros included in a TIR Carnet has been sufficient for covering possible taxes and charges in Russia. Finnish Customs will notify the public of any possible changes.
