ArmInfo. Armenia does not intend to apply to the EAEU structures in order to postpone the entry into force of the Union's regulations on customs clearance of cars from third countries. Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan stated this on September 16 at a press conference.
To recall, when entering the EAEU, Armenia received a transition period for customs duties, including for cars. From 2015 to 2020, the customs duty on cars in Armenia remained at the level of 10%, regardless of the age and volume of the engine. Starting next year, Armenia will switch to the duties of the EAEU, which differ in age of the car and engine power, as well as in the one who brings the car - ordinary citizens (for personal use) or car dealers (for resale). But in both cases, the duties will be several times higher than now.
According to Pashinyan, a policy aimed at a long delay in adjustments, which, in principle, by agreement, should come into force, is very much justified. To make more reasonable efforts to increase economic efficiency, he noted.
