Sochi Accepts ATA Carnets for Winter Olympics

Friday, December 20, 2013

Our simplified guidelines for clearing customs for the Sochi Winter Olympics are now available. (These are not to be confused with the official Customs and Freight Forwarding Guide published by Olympic and Paralympic authorities.)

I reviewed the Guide and have filtered out the most relevant information for U.S. organizations and individuals that want to import goods and equipment into Russia for the 2014 Olympics.

Note that for temporary imports, the primary methods of clearing customs are ATA Carnet and Sochi 2014 Customs Procedure. To determine which is best for your situation, evaluate both eligibility for the Sochi 2014 Customs Procedure and your itinerary.
