Import of cars to Belarus
Car imports to Belarus are growing every year. This is due to an increase in the import of cars from the Russian Federation. The article will tell you about the amount of customs payments for import, customs clearance services and all the details of importing cars.
Customs clearance of a car when imported into Belarus
The legislation of the Republic of Belarus allows the import of vehicles into the territory of the country for personal use. Foreign vehicles must be declared in writing using the passenger customs declaration.
The amount of customs payments for importing a car into Belarus
When importing a personal car into the country, the following parameters must be taken into account.
The customs duty in Belarus is 120 BYN.
The amount of customs duties is calculated based on the vehicle year and engine size.
There are some benefits for disabled people of the 1st / 2nd group, guardians of disabled children, and parents of large families. The amount of customs duty for these citizens is reduced by 50%. Electric vehicles have a zero customs duty rate.
If you are bringing in a passenger car for personal use, then the amount of the recycling fee will depend on the year of the car.
If he is more than 3 years old, the amount will be equal to 544.5 BYN.
For cars older than 3 years, the amount rises to 816.7 BYN.
The same system is installed for electric vehicles.
Privileges for customs payments
The legislation of the Republic of Belarus provides for preferential customs clearance for disabled people of I and II groups and parents of large families. Customs clearance of the car will cost them half of the indicated amounts
Moreover, you can declare your right, both immediately when registering for a PTO, and later by writing a request to the customs authorities for the return of half of the full amount of duties paid.
Parents of children with disabilities systematically wrote requests to state bodies for their inclusion in the list of beneficiaries. Their request was satisfied, and now parents and guardians of minor children with disabilities are also entitled to payment of duties with the subsequent return of part of the payments.
Preferences for environmentally friendly engines
The whole world, including the Belarusian state, is interested in spreading the idea of buying electric vehicles. Thus, for the distribution of this type of transport, the legislation of the Republic of Belarus does not provide for customs duties for their import.
Over the past few years, various attempts have been made to make electric cars more attractive to Belarusian motorists. But the ideas were unsuccessful. Electric cars have not found widespread use due to the short duration of the decree on customs payments and the weak infrastructure for servicing such cars.
Now the European countries are planning to resume the strategy, taking into account the mistakes made. The necessity of importing electric vehicles according to the “cheaper scheme” for ordinary citizens was also pointed out, as well as the establishment of the period of validity of zero rates for at least a year.
To date, the legislation of the Republic of Belarus states that until January 31, 2025, there will be a zero customs duty rate for individuals and legal entities of Belarus when importing cars with electric motors.
