On 15 March 2022, the Presidential Decree Amending the Decree on the Implementation of Certain Articles of the Customs Law No. 4458 (“Decree“) was published in the Official Gazette. The Decree introduced notable amendments to the customs duty rates of certain product groups imported via mail, cargo or along with passengers. The amendments will enter into force on 1 May 2022.
The main amendments introduced by the Decree are as follows:
The maximum value subject to the fixed duty rates for goods imported by real persons via mail or cargo will be reduced from EUR 1,500 to EUR 150. Meanwhile, the customs duty rate on goods imported from non-EU countries will increase from 20% to 30%. Accordingly, a small number of low value imports will be subject to fixed duty rates and imports from non-EU countries will be subject to a higher duty.
In addition, medicines imported by real persons via mail or cargo that are not commercial in quantity or nature, and whose value does not exceed EUR 1,500 are now subject to: (i) 18% customs duty if they are imported from EU countries; and (ii) 30% customs duty if they are imported from other countries.
The aforementioned rates will also apply to goods brought in by passengers that are not commercial in quantity or nature, are valued at EUR 1,500 or less, and that are not within the scope of Annex 9 (which sets forth the personal belongings that are subject to quantity/amount limitation), but that exceed the limit on the number of souvenirs that passengers can bring into the country with them.
