What do we declare when exporting and what are the restrictions on the import of tangible property and monetary values

A trip abroad and returning home require the tourist to know the rules for the transport of goods and things – even those that are in personal use …

What do we declare when exporting and what are the restrictions on the import of tangible property and monetary values
In order not to experience problems at the customs control, we prepared a “cheat sheet” on what can be imported and what can be exported from Russia.
What we declare and what can be exported without declaration
What can be exported without declaration

Without declaration, it is allowed to export currency in an amount not exceeding the equivalent of $ 10,000 (total amount of cash and traveller’s checks). Money instruments are subject to mandatory declaration, regardless of the amount. The export of cash and traveller’s checks in an amount exceeding the equivalent of $ 10,000 is subject to mandatory declaration. Money on a bank card without declaration.

What personal items are subject to declaration

Items for personal use are allowed to be exported without declaration and customs payments. However, goods for personal use with a total value of 1 million rubles or more, including products from precious metals and stones, as well as natural pearls, are subject to declaration; pocket and wrist watches with precious metal case; cases, straps, tapes and bracelets for watches made of precious metal.

As you know, “the best friends of girls are diamonds”, so if you do not part with the “pebbles”, then the export of diamonds worth no more than $ 75,000 is allowed. But if you took your favorite emerald necklace with you, then you need to declare it when leaving the country, so that it can be brought back without problems without paying a fee.

The passenger customs declaration can be filled out before crossing the border or in advance on the form of the FCS of Russia

Russian customs rules establish a list of goods that always require declaration upon entry and exit. In this case, it does not matter if they are with the passenger or are in baggage.

The declaration indicates the goods that are in hand luggage or are separate from the passenger. It is filled by citizens over 16 years old. The passenger customs declaration can be completed before crossing the border or in advance by downloading the form on the website of the FCS of Russia.

To be declared upon entry

Cultural values.

Plants and animals are on the verge of extinction.

Vehicles.

State awards of the Russian Federation.

Precious metals and stones.

Weapons and components.

Medicines containing potent and toxic substances, as well as medications of a psychotropic and narcotic nature.

Please note that almost all products from the list require mandatory documentary support. The owner must provide certificates from the relevant authorities that the goods are transported legally.

More detailed information on the rules for the movement of goods, including lists of prohibited or restricted goods, is available on the FCS Russia customs.ru website.

To be declared upon departure

Seafood.

From Russia it is allowed to export up to 5 kg of fish and seafood, as well as up to 250 g of sturgeon caviar in factory packaging and in the presence of store receipts. Export in excess of these standards is strictly prohibited – this is confiscated.

Stocking up gasoline for the future will not work.

It is forbidden to export more than 10 liters of fuel in a separate container (outside the fuel tank). So if you are going to travel abroad in your own car, it will not work to stock up on gas for the future.
What restrictions exist on imported tangible property and monetary values
Customs officers determine the destination of goods, based on their quantity and characteristics, as well as the frequency of crossing the border by an individual

Imported goods should be intended only for personal, family, domestic needs, and not for any entrepreneurial activity. As indicated in the clarifications of the FCS of the Russian Federation, customs officers determine the destination of goods based on their quantity and characteristics, as well as the frequency of crossing the border by an individual. So if you say that all 10 fashionable pairs of sneakers of different sizes or 10 handbags from the sale in Italy in your luggage are for personal use only, this can cause questions (at least).

Bills, bank checks, bearer securities are subject to declaration, regardless of the amount, and cash and traveller’s checks are subject to declaration in an amount exceeding the equivalent of $ 10,000 per family member
Without declaration, it is allowed to import currency in an amount not exceeding the equivalent of $ 10,000 (total amount of cash and traveller’s checks). Money instruments (bills, bank checks, bearer securities) are subject to mandatory declaration, regardless of the amount. The importation of cash and traveller’s checks in an amount exceeding the equivalent of $ 10,000 is also subject to mandatory declaration.
