Information about the debt on customs payments and taxes (the basis for the prohibition of entry into Russia)

According to Part 1 of Article 27 of the Federal Law №114-FZ “On the procedure for exit from the Russian Federation and entry into the Russian Federation” dated August 15, 1996, tax evasion by a foreign citizen during his/her stay in the territory of the Russian Federation is the basis to prohibit his/her further entries to the Russian Federation.

This rule also applies to cases of non-fulfillment by a foreign citizen of the obligation to pay customs duties and taxes on time, including violation of the conditions for the temporary importation of personal vehicles into the customs territory of the Eurasian Economic Union.

The Federal Customs Service of Russia has launched an information service that allows online verification of the existence of arrears in customs or tax payments and decisions taken by customs authorities on prohibition of entry into the Russian Federation.

The above-mentioned information service is available in Russian language at https://edata.customs.ru/FtsPersonalCabinetWeb/Services/About/CheckPayments.
