Duty-free import of goods for personal use decreases with 2019.

The rates of duty-free import of goods by land transport will be reduced threefold from January 1 2019 - the decision was made by the Council of the Eurasian Economic Commission (EEC). The document was published in early November on the website of the Eurasian Economic Union.
Before 2018, there were no uniform rules for the duty-free importation of goods for personal use in the countries of the union - they appeared together with the new EAEU Customs Code. Now, without paying duties, you can import goods worth up to 1500 euros or up to 50 kg by car or train, but as early as December 2017, the countries agreed to lower thresholds. This should have happened gradually: in 2019 - up to 1000 euro, then decrease by 250 euro annually and so on to 500 euro in 2021. The weight remained at first the same, in 2020, it decreased to 35 kg, in a year - to 25 kg . But the EEC decided to speed up the process - the norms will drop to 500 euro and 25 kg in two months. This proposal to Russia, said the representative of the Federal Customs Service (FCS).
