Rules for customs clearance of humanitarian aid in Ukraine are simplifiedThe Cabinet of Ministers has simplified the rules for the import of humanitarian aid to Ukraine. A number of countries are ready to let Ukrainian vehicles through without international permits. The procedure for passing humanitarian aid across the border will be simplified as much as possible. For the period of martial law, to import such cargo through customs, you just need to fill out a form.
The State Customs Service and the State Border Service for the period of martial law will ensure the immediate passage of humanitarian aid across the border. The bureaucracy has been removed as much as possible, but queues are possible due to the growth in the number of humanitarian aid shipments.
Bulgaria, Georgia, Romania and Turkey have already confirmed their readiness to let Ukrainian vehicles through without international permits, which simplifies the logistics of humanitarian and military-technical assistance to Ukraine. And Germany, Slovakia, the Czech Republic and Austria will provide free travel for all citizens of Ukraine on their own railways.
How to clear body armor, helmets and armor plates in wartime
During the wartime in Ukraine, the issue of customs clearance of goods with bulletproof vests, helmets and stoves was settled. Such goods have recently been equated with humanitarian aid. The law provides for their first-priority free simplified declaration with the obligatory affixing of the stamp "Humanitarian aid. Sale is prohibited" in the shipping documents, cargo customs declarations, certified by the stamp of a customs officer. For import to Ukraine, you need to fill out only such a document as the right to a list of goods defined as humanitarian aid.
In order to ensure high mobility and movement of personnel, property of the Armed Forces of Ukraine and other military formations, vehicles of high cross-country ability (exclusively off-road vehicles, minivans, minibuses; this does not apply to sedans) are allowed to pass through the state border at automobile checkpoints. In order to determine common approaches and prevent delays in the registration of this category of vehicles, the following sequence of actions has been worked out, namely:
A separate procedure for passing through the customs border of Ukraine is applied to armored plates. From now on, they need to import only a letter of guarantee from the end user. Below is a template for this letter and instructions for filling it out.
Full instructions on how to donate humanitarian aidForm a humanitarian cargo abroad, grouping it into separate groups of goods (food, medicine, household items, personal protection items, etc.) and form a list of them.
Collect shipping documents for the cargo (if any) and hand it over to the person who will accompany the movement of this product across the border (in particular, the driver).
At the checkpoint at the state border, the person transporting this product (accompanying the cargo to the destination) must declare the goods being transported by groups of goods in the prescribed form and, together with the available shipping documents, provide it to the customs official.
Declaration of goods being transported should be carried out separately for each vehicle by which humanitarian aid goods will be delivered to their destination.
After completing customs clearance and passing the vehicle, deliver humanitarian aid goods to their destination.
How to complete the declaration:

You need to fill in in advance, not at the border itself.
Some manufacturers, through the nuances of the country's legislation, can sell such goods only through the conclusion of an agreement between the aid fund and Ukroboronprom, which indicates that it is the state that is the end consumer (this is also called the End User Certificate). This, of course, affects the speed of assistance. You also need to have an official letter of request for products from the military unit.
It will be useful to have the entire list of humanitarian aid goods with codes for which a separate procedure for passing through the customs border of Ukraine is applied. Also, do not forget about the responsibility for violation of the law, the use of humanitarian aid for the purpose of making a profit entails criminal or administrative liability.
