Customs clearance of goods by an individual

Individuals registered as entrepreneurs and participants in foreign economic activity can import, subject to mandatory clearance at customs, goods for:

  • commercial activities;
  • production activities;
  • subsequent implementation in Ukraine.

Individuals who are not entrepreneurs may import goods for personal use by declaring them orally or in writing.

The declaration method is determined by:

  • cost and weight of cargo;
  • frequency of crossing the border by the owner.

  • The transported goods weigh no more than 50 kg.
  • The cost of cargo transported across the land border is no more than 500 euros, through the air – 1000 euros.

The customs control procedure for the importation of goods by an individual provides for:

  • Oral questioning and verification of documents
  • Personal customs inspection
  • Inspection and inspection of the transported cargo

The customs officer determines the purpose of the cargo transported across the border on the basis of:

  • Declaration of an individual
  • Quantity, properties and destination of cargo
