Customs clearance is (customs clearance, cargo declaration) – the fulfillment of the necessary formalities arising in connection with the movement of goods and vehicles across the customs border, as well as in the event of a change in the customs procedure.

What to do first?

The customs clearance process consists of several stages.

We start by concluding a deed of trust between you and our company. After that, we provide you with a list of all the documents necessary for customs clearance of your cargo, according to your application, and also inform you where and what payments should be made, and their amount. As soon as your cargo arrives in the Republic of Belarus, it will be in the customs control zone (in a temporary storage warehouse), and at this moment you make the appropriate payments to the necessary authorities, after which the process of customs clearance of the cargo will begin. After that, you submit to us documents confirming that you have paid all the necessary taxes and duties on this cargo, and we, having these documents in our hands, will be able to tell you the exact time of completion of the customs clearance process for your goods. Further, your fate in the process ends, and you just have to wait for the successful result of the work of our specialists, who themselves will carry out the process of declaring the goods and take all communication with the customs authorities on themselves.

How long will customs clearance take?

As soon as your cargo is in the customs control zone and a declaration is submitted, in accordance with the current legislation, it will be processed in the “today for tomorrow” mode. If there is a special need, you can carry out the procedure “today for today”, however, it is worth remembering that by this moment you should have all the necessary documents.

What is the difference between statistical declaration and customs clearance?

The difference between these concepts lies in the fact that, while customs clearance is directly a procedure performed by the customs service (if all the necessary documents are available), statistical declaration, in essence, is a reporting document that economic entities in the Customs Union must maintain. To go through customs clearance, the procedure for filling out the declaration is mandatory, and control over it is entrusted to the customs authorities.
