 Customs regulations of the Republic of Uzbekistan.

Custom formalities

1. Since January 1, 2018, a double corridor system has been introduced in the international airports of the Republic of Uzbekistan: "green" and "red", for individuals to pass customs control. Any person can pass the "green" corridor, without completing the customs declaration, if:

- imported foreign currency does not exceed the equivalent of 2,000 (two thousand) US dollars;

- the cost and (or) the number of imported goods do not exceed the norms not subject to customs payments established by law;

- there are no phohibited and restricted for import/export goods  according to the current custom laws .

The choice of a "green" corridor means an application to the customs authority that an individual does not have goods or a foreign currency in cash that is subject to a written declaration.

In case of detection of goods or cash in foreign currency subject to written declaration, such person will be held liable in accordance with the established procedure .

When choosing a "red" corridor, an individual must fill out a customs declaration, indicate in it the availability of goods, cash foreign currency and other items subject to written declaration, and present it to a customs officer.

The message in the declaration of unreliable information entails responsibility in accordance with the current legislation.

If there is any doubt about the correctness of the choice, it is better to follow the "red" corridor or contact the customs officer.

More detailed information on customs legislation is located in front of the entrance of the "green" and "red" corridors.
