Crimean Customs has repeatedly revealed facts of transfer/sale of foreign vehicles for personal use, which were temporarily imported into the territory of the EAEU

“Often, citizens, buying such vehicles, do not check whether there are restrictions on the cars on the part of customs authorities. Such a position often leads to administrative fines, and sometimes, when the amount of unpaid customs payments exceeds 2 million rubles, and to criminal liability,” said Valery Tikhonov, deputy head of the Crimean Customs

Simultaneously with bringing to administrative responsibility the person who transferred the right to use and (or) dispose of a temporarily imported foreign vehicle to another person without the permission of the customs authority, and the person who accepted this vehicle, have a joint and several liability to pay customs duties and taxes at the rates established in accordance with the international treaty of the EEU member states.

Right: foreign individuals may import vehicles for personal use, registered in a state that is not a member of the Union, without paying customs duties for the period of their temporary stay, but not more than one year (Article 264 of the Customs Code of the EAEU). Persons of the member states of the Union have the right to import vehicles for personal use registered in a state that is not a member of the Union for a period of not more than one year, provided that the obligation to pay customs duties and taxes is secured

Temporarily imported vehicles for personal use before the expiry of the period during which they may temporarily stay on the customs territory of the Union are subject to customs declaration for the purpose of export from the customs territory of the Union, release into free circulation or for other purposes in accordance with the Customs Code of the EAEU.
