Customs Clearance Process in Uzbekistan
I. GENERAL MARKET INFO
According to official sources, Uzbekistan's foreign trade turnover was $10.7 billion in 2006, of which $6.3 billion were exports and $4.4 billion were imports. This shows a trade balance surplus of $1.9 billion, which is a 12.6 percent increase over last year. Uzbek exports rose by 16.7 percent and imports grew by 7.3 percent. According to the U.S. Census Bureau, U.S. – Uzbek trade increased by 21 percent in 2006 compared to 2005 to reach $205.4 million. U.S. exports to Uzbekistan declined by 27 percent compared to the previous year and amounted to $53.9 million, while imports from Uzbekistan increased 58 percent to $151.5 million. Imports to Uzbekistan were dominated by machinery and equipment for state-supported investment projects.
Uzbekistan has a complex tariff schedule and a high non-weighted average tariff rate relative to other Central Asian countries. Tariffs, the value-added tax (VAT), and excise taxes are only levied on imports by companies. Imports by individuals are subject to a unified tax on imports, the rate of which is 26 percent for flour, 40 percent for other food products, and 70 percent for nonfood products. The unified tax rate is lower than the combined rate of the tariff, VAT, and the excise tax for most food products, but is higher for most nonfood products.
A serious problem with tariffs in Uzbekistan is that changes to the tariff schedules are frequent and unpredictable. The process of customs clearance is difficult and bureaucratic. Even imports of capital equipment for U.S.- Uzbek joint ventures are subject to substantial processing delays. There is no procedure available for releasing goods under bond. To avoid these problems, many firms contract for pre-shipment inspection (PSI), which reduces delays in customs clearance. Excessive documentation requirements make customs clearance a costly and time-consuming process. In the absence of a system of pre-arrival clearing and systematic risk analysis, customs clearance requires the physical inspection of the consignment.
The Republic of Uzbekistan provides most favored nation (MFN) status to 38 countries (including the U.S.) in accordance with inter-governmental agreements on trade and economic cooperation.
Domestic taxes on imports include VAT and excise taxes. According to the tax code, a 20 percent VAT is charged on imports, though there are some exceptions. Excise tax rates on products imported and exported from Uzbekistan are established by resolution No. 567 of the Cabinet of Ministers of December 25, 2003. In Uzbekistan, excise taxes are levied on a wide range of imported consumer products that are not domestically produced. These include ice cream (subject to a 200 percent excise tax), mineral water (100 percent), most types of juices (70 percent), poultry (70 percent), cheese (50 percent), yogurt (50 percent), plastic tableware and kitchenware (50 percent), and soap (20 percent). The Asian Development Bank notes that, in what appears to be inconsistent policy, Uzbekistan tries to lower the domestic price for poultry by prohibiting exports and simultaneously attempts to raise the domestic price by levying a 50 percent excise tax on imports. There are more than 50 goods/product groups on which excise tax is levied. The excise tax rates on certain goods produced in Uzbekistan were changed and new taxable items were introduced in 2004. New rates and import customs duties were established by resolution #ÏÏ-26 of the Cabinet of Ministers of March 11, 2005 and resolution #ÏÏ-183 of the president of the Republic of Uzbekistan of September 19, 2005. The resolutions also establish new import customs duties for certain types of goods. VAT of 20 percent and excise duties of up to 90 percent, both calculated from the tariff inclusive cost (the cost of the goods plus import tariffs), are also levied on certain goods.
Uzbekistan's trade policy also includes the use of tariff-like instruments, such as various types of import surcharges. The two most important are the surcharges placed on all imports by individuals and the surcharges placed on imports coming from third party countries through neighboring countries that do not have certificates of origin. For example, nonfood products imported into Uzbekistan for commercial purposes from neighboring countries but without a certificate of origin are subject to a 20 percent surcharge.
II. CUSTOMS CLEARANCE
a) Customs procedures
Customs procedures are performed at local border crossings and during the customs authority's normal business hours. However, an official request can be made with the customs authorities to move the procedures to another location or outside of normal business hours. The Uzbek customs code stipulates that customs procedures must be performed within ten days of receipt of a customs declaration and supporting documentation. Goods can be declared by the individual or company importing them or by a customs broker. The person declaring the goods accepts all legal responsibility for them. Customs brokers in Uzbekistan conduct customs procedures on behalf of individuals and businesses. Until recently, this activity was licensed by the customs authorities, but now customs brokers can become registered without going through an official licensing process. According to official statistics, there were 298 customs brokers in Uzbekistan as of the beginning of 2004.
b) Customs brokers
Because of the bureaucratic nature of Uzbek customs, customs brokers are often used. According to the customs brokerage Holos, approximately 70 to 80 percent of the monetary value of all private imports is cleared by customs brokers. The use of a customs broker is convenient because it transfers all responsibility for clearing customs to the broker. The role of the customs broker is to:
- declare the shipment and submit the customs declaration to customs officials;
- submit any additional required documentation to officials;
- present the declared shipment to officials, upon request;
- pay all customs duties and other payments required by Uzbek customs law;
- assist customs officials in carrying out all customs procedures.
c) Customs warehouses
A customs warehouse can be established by a company or an individual Uzbek citizen. Customs warehouses are used for the temporary storage of goods before they clear customs. Warehouses can be set up to be open to anyone or restricted for use by certain people (usually, the owners of the warehouse). Owners of a customs warehouse must:
- equip the warehouse to ensure customs control;
- ensure the safe-keeping of the goods;
- exclude the possibility of withdrawal of goods in storage for purposes other than customs control;
- ensure that the customs control process proceeds smoothly;
- account for the goods stored in the warehouse and report any information necessary to the customs authorities;
- adhere to the terms of the warehouse license;
- carry out any legitimate requests from customs officials.
Goods transiting through Uzbekistan to another country must be declared to customs authorities upon entry into Uzbekistan. Following declaration, the goods must move through the country along the route specified by the customs authorities. No duties or taxes are charged on such goods. As the goods move through Uzbekistan, they must remain unchanged (allowing for natural depreciation) and must not be used for any economic purpose. If the goods are not presented unchanged at customs as they exit Uzbekistan, the carrier is responsible for payment of all duties, taxes, and possible penalties, unless it is shown that the goods were imported, destroyed, or lost.
The following goods are prohibited from transit through Uzbekistan: armaments and live ammunition, aircraft and aircraft parts, machine-tools and machines intended for the manufacture of armaments, live ammunition, aircraft, explosives, poisons, ethyl alcohol, and any other objects forbidden by Uzbek law from being imported into Uzbekistan. These types of goods can be moved through Uzbekistan with the permission of the Agency for Foreign Economic Relations (AFER). If goods subject to the excise tax are moved through Uzbekistan, the owner must deposit customs payment with the State Customs Committee. When the goods leave Uzbekistan, this deposit is returned. Alcohol and tobacco transiting through Uzbekistan must have a customs escort.
1. Free circulation (imported goods cleared for free circulation without restrictions and/or an obligation to export). This is the most commonly used trade regime. Free circulation is the regime under which goods imported into Uzbekistan remain there permanently without obligation to export. The regime stipulates payment of customs duties, taxes, and other customs fees as well as observance of certain economic policies;
6. Temporary import (export);
7. Temporary storage;
8. Customs warehouse;
9. Free customs zone;
10. Free warehouse;
11. Duty free shop;
12. Processing in customs territory;
13. Processing outside customs territory;
15. Refusal in favor of state.
The documents necessary for customs clearance are set forth in Instruction No. 428 registered by the Ministry of Justice on April 8, 1998, and are as follows:
2. Certificate of conformity (only required for certain products, the list of which is defined by the Cabinet of Ministers);
3. Certificate of origin;
4. Registration certificate of the contract with AFER and/or contract with a stamp indicating registration with an authorized bank;
5. Import transaction passport (a document describing the terms of the import contract signed by the importer, a bank, and a customs officer);
6. Certificate confirming the importer's ability to pay under the contract (funds must be available in foreign and domestic currencies);
7. Cargo customs declaration;
8. Invoice from a company in the exporting country;
9. Phytosanitary and veterinary certificates (if required);
10. License (for any goods subject to licensing);
11. In necessary cases, permission of authorized banks.
Based on the law "On State Sanitary Control" of July 3, 1992, the Ministry of Health examines many imported consumer goods (food, raw materials, medicines, chemicals, and minerals) to ensure they meet the country's medical and biological standards. If they do not, the goods cannot be imported into Uzbekistan.
Veterinary control measures are organized and implemented pursuant to the law "On Veterinary" of September 3, 1993 (including modifications and amendments of May 6, 1995 and April 25, 1997) and other acts passed based on this law.
The veterinary law defines the main objectives of the veterinary service, its management, the authority of state veterinary inspectors, the rights and duties of owners of livestock and livestock products, the procedures of imposing or lifting a quarantine in case of livestock with contagious disease, and other organizational and legal issues related to the veterinary service.
The State Veterinary Department of the Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources manages the country's network of veterinary services. Its divisions regulate the cross-border and internal transportation of animals.
The State Veterinary Department also assesses the epizootic situation in
Uzbekistan and protects the country from infectious diseases from animals abroad. It performs these duties by adopting relevant measures of control over the procurement, transportation, export, and import of livestock and animal products, fodder, fodder additives, and agricultural products. This requires applying measures to prevent and eliminate transmittable disease and spreading information necessary to define the epizootic condition of imported and exported animals.
The State Inspection for Plant Quarantine under the Ministry of Agriculture and Water Resources exercises control over the import and export of plants and implements a uniform state quarantine control over plants.
The Cabinet of Ministers Resolution No. 287 specifies additional documents that may be required to clear certain imported goods. Customs officers have the right to request any additional documents for declarations.
More information on certification procedures and the agencies authorized to certify different groups of products can be obtained from Uzstandard, the authorized body on issues related to certification, metrology, and standardization.

a) Commodity Classification and Customs Valuation
The law "On Customs Tariff" adopted by the Parliament of Uzbekistan on August 29, 1997 and brought into effect on January 1, 1998, applies the following customs duty methods:
- Ad valorem, calculated as a percent of the customs value of the products;
- Specific, calculated at an established rate per unit of the imposed products;
- Combined, using both methods mentioned above.
The resolution of the Cabinet of Ministers of May 3, 2002, established the Commodity List of Foreign Economic Activity of the Republic of Uzbekistan based on the harmonized system of describing and coding products (2002 version).
The same law "On Customs Tariff" and customs code set forth a method for determining customs value in line with WTO/GATT valuation principles and procedures. The customs value is used for levying ad valorem duty rates, customs fees, VAT, and excise taxes. The customs value is also used as a value for goods in foreign trade statistics and other state trade regulation measures.
Article 17 of the law "On Customs Tariff" defines customs value based on one of the following methods:
- transaction value of imported goods;
- transaction value of identical goods;
- deductive value;
- computed value; and
- reserve method.
The transaction value of imported goods is the preferred method for determining customs value. When this method cannot be used, an appropriate alternative method is chosen from the above list in descending order of preference (the deducted value and computed value methods can be used interchangeably).
b) Import duty
The January 7, 2004 decree "On Measures to Further Enhance Customs Tariff Regulation" of the Cabinet of Ministers of Uzbekistan modified about 40 percent of import customs duties. Customs duty rates are established according to the following general principles:
- goods, which are not produced and will not be produced in Uzbekistan – no duty.
- goods, which are not produced in significant volume in Uzbekistan – 5 percent.
- goods, which are not produced in significant volume in Uzbekistan, but which the government has targeted for increased production – 10 percent.
- goods, which are sufficiently produced by the domestic market – 30 percent.
As of January 1, 2004, there is no customs duty on imports of machines, tools, and technological equipment. This includes equipment for the production of construction materials, goods, and structures. These goods can be imported by companies for their own use or can be imported via foreign trade companies of ministries, agencies, and economic entities, the foreign trade companies "Uzinterimpex", "Uzmarkazimpex", "Uzprommashimpex", and "Markazsanoatexport", and leasing companies.
According to presidential decree No. UP-3080 of May 30, 2002 "About Further
Development of Computerization and Introduction of Information Technology", enterprises engaged in the field of information technology are exempt from customs duties on the import of network equipment and software programs.
Resolution No. 137of the Cabinet of Ministers of March 31, 1998 "On Additional Measures on Liberalization of Foreign Trade Activity" establishes that customs duties are not imposed on products:
- supplied through inter-governmental loan agreements, signed on behalf of the government of Uzbekistan or under its guarantees;
- imported through resources allocated from the state budget.
In addition, import customs duties were abolished on certain foodstuffs and other essential goods (including medicine and medical consumables) imported by legal entities.
Products imported into and exported from Uzbekistan in the order established by Uzbek legislation are not charged customs duties if they are:
- displays for expositions, advertisements, and presentations;
- raw materials and spare parts, imported (exported) for industrial processing and manufacturing products subject to export (import) (in other words, goods imported for manufacturing in Uzbekistan and then exported).
In accordance with Article 12 of the law "On Foreign Investments" of April 30, 1998, goods imported by enterprises with foreign capital for their production needs and for the private needs of their staff are exempt from customs duties.
In accordance with Article 33 of the law on customs tariffs, the following are exempt from customs duties:
- vehicles engaged in international transportation of cargo, luggage, and passengers. This includes all goods used in support of such transportation at stopovers (fuel, food, etc.) and any property acquired abroad due to an emergency (e.g., break-down);
- Uzbek domestic currency, foreign currency (except coins), and securities. The current limit on removing foreign currency in cash from Uzbekistan is $2,000. However, an amount exceeding this sum can be taken out if the bearer proves that he/she brought currency from abroad or has withdrawn it from a bank account;
- facilities, fuel, food, and other property used outside of Uzbekistan to operate ships leased by Uzbek companies and individuals, ships engaged in fishing, or to produce fish products brought into Uzbekistan;
- goods to be transferred to the state (only in certain cases specified by law);
- goods brought into or taken out of Uzbekistan for use by representatives of foreign states or by other individuals entitled to a duty-free importation of such goods by Uzbek law or international treaties;
- charitable goods/funds coming into or leaving Uzbekistan from foreign governments or international organizations. This includes humanitarian assistance, grant aid, and educational material (e.g., school textbooks for free education, pre-school, and medical institutions);
- goods moving through Uzbekistan destined for third countries;
- goods imported by individuals that are not intended for manufacturing or commercial activities, pursuant to the customs law;
- technological equipment imported for modernizing and upgrading production processes (must follow established procedure);
- technological equipment imported by small and medium enterprises using foreign credit. This exemption also applies if the equipment is to be used by small and medium enterprises.
According to presidential decree No. NO-3240 May 6, 2003 "On the Main Directions for Deepening Economic Reforms in Capital Construction", enterprises and organizations specializing in the production of construction materials are exempt from paying customs duties. The only exception to this is that customs formalization fees must be paid on imports of equipment and spare parts to produce construction materials.
Resolution No. 305 of the cabinet of ministers of July 16, 2003 established a zero rate of customs duties for legal entities and individuals importing wood and lumber.
c) Excise Tax
The excise tax is used to protect import substitution industries and specific firms from competition from imports. The "double protection" of the excise and tariff systems is provided to various sectors, namely: carpets, imports of which carry an excise duty of 90 percent plus an additional 5 percent which is paid to local producers, crystal goods (30 percent and 5 percent), video and audio apparatus (45 percent and 5 percent), metal and aluminum kitchenware of (20 percent and 5 percent), and furniture (10 percent and 5 percent) except, oddly, furniture for schools or hospitals which get charged only 5 percent. There are many items for which excise duties are paid on imports but are not paid by import substitution producers. For example: sunglasses with a 30 percent excise duty on imports and none on local production, refrigerators 20 percent, sugar and sugar-based confectionary 20 percent to 30 percent, and tea 10 percent. All excise duties on imports are in addition to tariffs and customs fees.
The Uzbek tax code establishes a value added tax (VAT) rate of 20 percent for products (works, services) imported into Uzbekistan. Payment of the VAT is done before or during customs formalization.
Article 71 of the tax code provides the list of products exempt from VAT. A January 19, 1998 presidential decree exempts from the VAT technology imported for the following purposes:
- equipment for priority facilities included in the investment program;
- implementation of investment projects funded through foreign loans under government guarantees;
- newly built and renovated enterprises specializing in producing consumer goods;
- technology imported by foreign investors as input into the charter capital of enterprises.
e) Customs Processing Fee
According to the customs code, fees are levied for the following services:
- customs registration;
- customs services; and
- issuance of the customs certificate.
Preferential Tariff Regimes
The Republic of Uzbekistan uses a preferential system of tariffs for textile trade with the EU in accordance with an agreement between the two parties.
The tariff rates quoted here are charged on imports from countries with which Uzbekistan has negotiated most favored nation (MFN) status (38 countries have MFN status with Uzbekistan, including the US). For non-MFN countries, the tariff rates are double the MFN rate. It is estimated that only 6.8 percent of all legal imports into Uzbekistan come from non-MFN countries.
Prohibited or Restricted Imports
The import licensing system was authorized by presidential decree No. 1871 of October 10, 1997, and applies to the following: arms and military equipment, precious metal alloys and precious stones, radioactive substances, audio and video products, and professional activities carried out by foreign citizens in Uzbekistan. A license is required to import products from these groups.
Annex N5 5 to presidential decree N2 YII-1871 of December 10, 1997 identifies the list of products prohibited for import into Uzbekistan. Among them are print, cinema, photography, audio, and other media aimed at i) undermining the state and social structure; ii) disrupting the territorial integrity, political independence, and state sovereignty of Uzbekistan; iii) propagating war, terrorism, violence, ethnic exclusiveness, religious hatred, racism of all types (anti-Semitism, fascism, etc.); and materials with pornographic content.
Resolution N2 213 of the cabinet of ministers of May 15, 1998 prohibits the import of ethylic spirit into Uzbekistan and its transit through Uzbek territory.
Annex No 2 to resolution No 2 137 of the cabinet of ministers of March 31, 1998 gives a list of specific products, works, and services, the export and import of which can only be carried out with the authorization of specific authorized organs of the Republic of Uzbekistan.
Resolution No 5 151 of the cabinet of ministers of April 19, 2000 "On the Regulation of Import into and Export from the Republic of Uzbekistan of Environmentally Harmful Products and Wastes" aims to prevent the import, export, and transit of harmful waste and to foster economic integration with the world market through the creation of a system of environmental certification. The resolution also approved the list of products subject to mandatory environmental certification (Annex No. 1).
Resolution No 90 of the cabinet of ministers of March 14, 2000 "On Regulation of Import Into and Export From the Republic of Uzbekistan of Ozone Destroying Compounds and Products Containing Such Compounds" approves a list of ozone destroying compounds that can only be imported or exported with the authorization of the State Committee on Nature Protection.
Resolution N2 293 of the cabinet of ministers of July 31, 2000 "On Import, Export and Transit of Narcotics and Psychotropic Compounds" requires importers and exporters of narcotics, psychotropic compounds, and precursors to obtain certification from authorized organs of Uzbekistan.
Membership in Free Trade Agreements.
In an effort to expand trade and integrate into the global economy, the Central Asian republics, including Uzbekistan, have been pursuing memberships in regional trade agreements (RTAs) and accession to the World Trade Organization (WTO). Since 1991, Central Asian countries have joined several regional organizations that involve or seek to reach a multilateral RTA. In addition, Uzbekistan has entered into numerous bilateral RTAs with member countries of the Commonwealth of Independent States. The RTAs involving Uzbekistan generally have a narrow scope and complex rules of origin. Most of them are also rarely used. Consequently, their impact on Uzbekistan's trade policy and pattern of trade has been limited. If fully implemented, however, the concluded and planned RTAs involving the Central Asian republics, such as the customs union of the Eurasian Economic Community (EAEC), may cause considerable trade diversion. Uzbekistan acceded to the EAEC in January 2006.
In addition to the MFN discounted tariffs, goods from CIS countries, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Moldova, Russia, Ukraine, Turkmenistan and Tajikistan, in principle, enter Uzbekistan duty and surcharge free under a free trade area agreement, if they are imported by legal entities and carry a valid certificate of origin. However, the benefits from this agreement are disputed. There is widespread belief that the duty-free status of CIS mutual trade on paper does not always work in practice. In addition, Uzbekistan has bilateral free trade agreements with all CIS countries except Armenia. Uzbekistan gives preferential treatment to imported textiles from the EU under a bilateral arrangement. There are other additions and exemptions to the basic MFN tariff rates. For example, automobiles, vans, and trucks are charged a specific tariff of up to $3 per cc of engine size in addition to the ad valorem tariff of 30 percent. Used cars of up to three years of age are taxed as new cars. Additional specific duties are also paid on tobacco and tobacco products and alcoholic drinks.

c) Uzbekistan's major exports are cotton fiber, fuels, energy, non-ferrous metals, food products, and services. Major imports are machinery and appliances, land vehicles, items of iron and steel, food products, electrical machinery and equipment, sugar, plastics and plastic items, and services.
The railway system transports the bulk of international freight: over 90 percent of Uzbekistan's exports and imports are moved via railway. Multimodal transport in Uzbekistan is still in its infancy. The government plans to set up a specialized multimodal transport organization and develop multimodal terminals throughout the country, including in Tashkent, Bukhara, and Termez. International road transport is dominated by truckers from Turkey and Iran who mostly use the southern routes of Uzbekistan. Many illegal payments are reported in Kazakhstan, especially by traders using the eastern route via Chimkent. These payments are often made to avoid fines for overloading (permitted axle loads in Kazakhstan are lower than in Uzbekistan). To circumvent fines and extortion, trucks often prefer to choose the less-patrolled dirt road west of the Aral Sea.
