At Surgut airport, customs officers in the “green corridor” stopped a passenger flying in from Tajikistan. The inspectors saw several identical goods in a suitcase on the introscope screen

Customs inspection revealed that the man had brought seven hair clippers and four trimmers. According to the airline passenger, he bought the goods as a gift for his son and his colleagues who work as hairdressers. The man did not know that he had violated customs regulations

Based on the quantity and functionality of the items, we concluded that the goods do not belong to the category for personal use and will be used for commercial purposes. In this case, mandatory declaration in the “red” corridor with payment of customs duties is required,” explained Igor Galuzin, Head of Surgut Customs Post

In respect of the passenger, employees of the Surgut customs post initiated a case of administrative offense under part 1 of article 16.2 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Russian Federation (non-declaration of goods). He faces a fine with confiscation of the offense items
