Customs Duties – CARNET

The Israeli Embassy in Baku brings to our attention a subject they found out and learned about him in last period.

Right now Azerbaijan isn’t a signatory to the Convention called CARNET
(see link for more information).

The Convention allows passengers arriving in the country to bring supplies or equipment without having to pay Customs duties. The Convention is particularly relevant for those who come for a short visit to the exhibition or conference during which they are interested to bringing technological equipment they do not intend to sell it during their stay.

Because Azerbaijan is not a signatory to this convention, the only way to bring such equipment is a way of making contact with a local customs broker who will help in treating and releasing equipment.

This is the only way to treat such cases and avoid unpleasant situations in which the airport customs officials stopped traveling and confiscate equipment.
