The customs clearance process in Russia is a bit complicated, but we do our best to explain all the steps to you:

Documents required for customs clearance in Russia

If you want to start customs clearance in Russia, you will have to prepare many documents to start the process

The following documents should be sent with your shipment when shipping from China to Russia:

  • One of the following documents is used to confirm the value: a price list verified by the seller (catalog page, Internet printout, etc.); A receipt; A copy of the export declaration (if the laws of your exporting country allow it)
  • Permissions required for your HS tariff code (for plant products, for example, quarantine approval from the shipper is required)
  • A copy of the insurance license with the insured amount (for incoterms: CIP, CIF) where the insurance is part of the contract.
  • Company registration documents
  • Import and export contracts
  • An approved brokerage contract if using a customs declaration service
  • Import transaction Passport number (specific currency control document issued by importer’s bank when customs valuation exceeds $50,000)
  • An official letter to Customs
  • Permission published by the Russian authorities as required by the HS (customs) code (e.g. import license, etc.)

What is a commercial invoice?

  • A commercial invoice is one of the main documents you need to import goods from China to Russia.
  • A commercial invoice is a legal document between the supplier and the customer that clearly states the goods that have been sold and the amount due to the customer.
  • A commercial invoice is one of the primary documents used by customs to determine customs duties.

How do I fill out a proforma invoice?

Here we explain to you how to fill out a PRO_ORMA INVOICE when you purchase any product from a Chinese seller; Please tell your seller to prepare a pro-forma invoice that meets this standard; Otherwise, you will have a problem with your customs clearance process in Russia.

Five golden rules for customs clearance in Russia

  1. The declared value needs to be accurate and supported by documentation (upon request).
  2. All product descriptions should be as detailed as possible.
  3. All documents must be consistent without any differences (e.g., currency, sender’s name, etc.).
  4. Duties and fees must be paid by the recipient at the destination (the recipient will also need to clear the shipment in his or her name). DDP is not available.
  5. Proper preparation of documents before shipping reduces shipping time.

What is the average tariff rate in Russia?

The tariff fee varies for each product and each HS code, but general goods are usually subject to a duty of 8% of their value, but not less than 4 EUR / 1kg.

However, all agents and all those involved in organizing the import of goods from China to Russia should be aware that the weight of the goods must be reasonable and consistent with the value.

Agents in the destination country/region must be consulted for information on the weight of the goods and their value before packing and shipping.

Sometimes, customs requires the customer to be present during the clearance process.

Taxes and duties in Russia

As in other countries, there are different taxes and duties for each product in Russia.

At the beginning of 2001, Russia implemented a new, more straightforward tariff composition consisting of four basic rates: 5%, 10%, 15% and 20%.

This undoubtedly reduced the tariff ceiling from 30 percent to 20 percent. Most imported goods are also subject to a 20 percent value-added tax (VAT), except food, which is only 10 percent. Luxury goods, alcohol, tobacco, and automobiles are subject to excise duty ranging from 20% to 570%.

Russian Customs and Import Duty tax calculation method

Whether it is an individual or a business entity that imposes duties or import duties on certain goods brought in when importing goods into Russia, the taxes will be pending and will need to be settled.

For more information, you can use the information in this table:

Duty Rates Average Duty Rate Sales Tax(GST) Threshold on goods
0% to 100% 7.80% ST=18% Duty and Taxes are free if CIF value and weight do not exceed 1000 and 31 kg per for personal imports. There is no threshold for commercial imports
VAT = ST * (CIF + Duty+ other taxes)

How do I import samples from China to Russia?

Every day, many Russians buy and send product samples from Chinese sellers. They ask us how to send samples to Russia, and they

also ask about the customs clearance process for a large number of samples.

Commercial samples are exempt from customs duties and import VAT for up to two years if they are used only for promotional purposes. Biological samples and pharmaceutical samples must be accompanied by specific certificates.

Russian Customs Classification

Russia implements a Unified Customs system (HS code). The customs tariff includes 11,032 tax items.

How does Russia pay customs duties?

Usually, when you use Dantful shipping services, we will clear customs for you in Russia.

But if you want to clear customs yourself, you need to know how to pay for Russian customs clearance

Customs also charges a fee for clearing customs. Pay in cash at customs declaration.

Clearance can only be approved if a certificate showing payment has been made.

What is the HS code for import/Export, customs clearance, and transportation?

HS is one of the most successful tools developed by the World Customs Organization (WCO) because it fulfills a basic government need: the ability to classify what is being traded. This enables decisions to be made for immediate action on specific goods (such as tariff imposition, restriction, or control) and uses the collated information to support economic and trade-related policies and planning.

HS codes, simply referred to as HS codes, are common standards used worldwide to describe the type of goods being shipped.

HS codes are interpreted and operated by the World Customs Organization.

  • It consists of 5,000 commodity groups and covers 99 chapters, of which 21 sections;
  • Identified by a six-digit code;
  • Arranged in a legal and logical structure; and
  • Have clear rules to support and achieve uniform classification on a global scale

Russian Customs Product Categories (HS CODE)

According to Russian Customs regulations, there are 97 chapters of this product category in the customs system.

So if you want to find your HS-coded product, you first need to know which chapter your product is in.

China-Russia trade relations

China and Russia are two major countries in Asia. The two countries have a very important economic relationship.

Thousands of Toon products are imported from China to Russia every year.

We are happy to help many Russian citizens import and transport from China to Russia.

According to the Economic Complexity Index (ECI), Russia is the world’s 14th largest exporting economy and 27th most complex economy. In 2017, Russia exported $341B and imported $221B, resulting in a trade surplus of $120B. Russia’s GDP in 2017 was 1.58 tons, with a per capita GDP of $25,500.

In 2017, Russia imported $221B, making it the 19th largest importer in the world.

Over the past five years, Russian imports have declined at an annualized rate of -7.3%, from $324B in 2012 to $221B in 2017.

The most common recent imports are packaged pharmaceuticals, which account for 3.71% of total imports, followed by automobiles, which account for 3.47%.

A Russian-Chinese “partnership for modernization” could lay the groundwork for a new type of relationship.

Russia’s economic interaction with the People’s Republic of China plays a key role in the development of its eastern regions.

The implementation of the plan, especially in the energy and transportation sectors, will allow Russia to fully enjoy the advantages of its vast Asian territory.

Modern Russia-China trade dates back two decades. During this time, bilateral trade has become an integral part of the overall relationship between the two countries.

In 2014, China’s main trading partners were: The United States (US

$557.3 billion), Hong Kong (US $376.1 billion), Japan (US $312.64 billion), the Republic of Korea

(US $29063 billion), Taiwan (US $198.53 billion), Germany (US

$177.75 billion), Australia (US $137.13 billion) and Malaysia (US

$102.06 billion). Russia ranked ninth with US $95.31 billion, ahead of Brazil (US $86.83 billion), Vietnam (US $83.54 billion), and the United Kingdom (US $80.90 billion). 7 China has been Russia’s largest trading partner since 2010.

  • Speed: Air freight is the fastest way to transport international goods and is ideal for time-sensitive transportation.
  • Reliability: Airlines usually operate on a fixed schedule, so it is easier to plan and less likely to experience delays.
  • Security: Air cargo services often have better security measures that reduce the likelihood of cargo being stolen or damaged during transit.

Coverage: Air freight can transport goods to almost any location with an airport, providing more extensive coverage than other modes of transportation.

  • Flexibility: Air freight can handle cargo of all sizes and types, from small high-value items to large equipment.
  • Tracking: Modern air freight often includes real-time tracking services to give you peace of mind and efficient logistics planning.
  • Reduced warehousing needs: Faster lead times can reduce the need for local warehousing and inventory storage, potentially reducing costs.
