Russia Makes Importing Goods Easier
Beginning October 1, there will be two instead of seven agencies controlling the auto checkpoints at Russia's borders. Only border guards and custom officials will continue to work at the checkpoints.
It is expected that imports of products, goods, cars, flowers, plants, and animals will now cross the border more easily because of the new "one stop" inspection procedures.
A government decree effective October 1, gives custom officials the duties of former sanitation, livestock, and transportation inspectors. The goal of this decree is to reduce the checkpoint waits to several minutes. Inspections will only take place in "exceptional circumstances." The checkpoints will be divided into “red” and “green” lines. The green lines will not have additional custom control. Until now, importers often had to wait a tiring three to five hours at the checkpoints.
