decision on the acceptance for processing of tir carnets in the international automobile border-crossing point “torfyanovka”

On May 27, 2015, the information from the Federal Customs Service was transferred. The establishment gave an order concerning the resumption of unimpeded processing of TIR Carnets (Transports Internationaux Routiers [French] – International Transport of Goods [English]) in the international automobile border-crossing point “Torfyanovka” at the Vyborg Customs.

The information was confirmed in practice. Carriers actively submit TIR Carnets in Torfyanovka. In doing so, they are passing the post without any additional forms of customs control.

It should be reminded that a TIR Carnet is an official document of customs transit granting the right to carry the cargo across the borders in sealed vehicles and to reduce the number of customs procedures.
