The Ukrainian Parliament introduced a visa-free customs agreement with the EU.
The parliament adopted the law on Customs Visa Exemption. It provides for the accession of Ukraine to the Convention on the Procedure of Common Transit with the European Union (NCTS) countries, said Deputy Chairman of the Finance Committee Yaroslav Zhelezniak. Customs Visa Free will allow Ukrainian businesses to take advantage of the following simplifications:
- One transit declaration and one guarantee for moving goods between 36 countries (with EU countries and Great Britain, Turkey, Serbia, North Macedonia, Iceland, Norway, Liechtenstein, and Switzerland).
- Authorized enterprises will be able to send and receive goods at their enterprise rather than having to go to customs terminals.
- Ukrainian financial guarantees will operate in another 35 countries of the world.
