According to the legislation, foreign individuals may temporarily import vehicles into the territory of the Eurasian Economic Union for personal use for the period of their temporary stay. Transfer of the right to use or dispose of temporarily imported vehicles to another person on the customs territory of the EAEU is allowed provided that they are declared to customs and customs payments are made

Failure to export a vehicle within the established time limits, transfer the right to use or otherwise dispose of temporarily imported vehicles without complying with the conditions established by the Customs Code of the EEU entails the imposition of an administrative fine with or without confiscation of the vehicle, and if the amount of unpaid customs payments exceeds 2 million rubles, the offender is criminally liable, – said Deputy Head of the Pskov Customs Andrei Goryachenok.
