reliable & timely door to door delivery

Russia

 

Meest Corporation Inc. sends parcels by Sea and Air to any destination in Russia and delivers them to the recipient’s nearest post office or directly into the hands of the recipient. 

From January 1, 2020, the duty free value of goods that may be sent to the Russian Federation is changing

According to the new customs rules, an individual in the Russian Federation may receive duty-free goods for personal use with a total value of up to 200 Euro and with a total weight of up to 30 kg. Monthly value and weight restrictions per recipient have been removed, but if there are multiple parcels per consignee in a single shipment, they may be classified as a commercial party

If the value of goods is exceeded (this is determined by a customs inspection) or if the contents of a parcel have been determined a commercial shipment, or if parcel’s weight is exceeded, customs duties will be levied at the rate of 15% of the value of goods, but not less than 2 Euro per kilogram, whichever is greater. If the customs fees are not paid, parcel will be automatically returned to the sender
