Starting February 7, 2014, the Russian Federal Customs Service will
require the following information for all non-document shipments intended for
personal use valued under 1000 EUR:
- the full name (first, middle, last) of the consignee as it appears on their
- the passport number of the consignee
- a brokerage service contract granting UPS the authority to file the customs
- an original commercial invoice plus two copies (including an accurate
description of goods)
Additional documents may be required by the
customs authorities upon request.
We ask consignees to have a copy of
their passport readily available and be responsive to questions/requests for
additional documentation in order to complete the clearance of their shipment.
Shippers can help to facilitate this process by informing their consignees of
Customs delays on non-document shipments intended for
personal use are still expected as a result of the changed procedure and
UPS continues to monitor the situation as additional changes
are announced by the Russian Federal Customs Service. For the latest tracking
