New restrictions on the import of right-hand drive cars to Russia come into force on July 1, the Federal Customs Service (FCS) reported, APA reports.
The import ban covers right-hand drive vehicles of the M2 and M3 categories: passenger buses, vans, and construction equipment.
In addition, the procedure for customs clearance of vehicles will become more complicated. A car owner will need to obtain a technical certificate confirming that the design of the vehicle meets safety requirements.
According to a representative of the FCS, the total amount of payments for right-hand drive cars, including those that will be imported into the Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) after July 1, 2020, is formed in accordance with the provisions of the legislations of EAEU and Russia and varies depending on the environmental class of a car, date of issue, engine size and other parameters.
