the fines for violation of the terms of transit and temporary From 25th of May  amendments to the Customs Code come into force, toughening the responsibility for violation of terms of transit and temporary import of a vehicle under a foreign registration.

By an "overnight" decision of the DFS and the Cabmin the rise of the penalties was postponed till 22.8.2019!

For overstaying  over transit terms the fine will be:

from 10 till  20 days – 17 000 UAH,

from 20 till 30 days – 85 000 UAH,

more than 30 days - 170 000 UAH or confiscation of a car according to the court decision.

Also, dismantling the vehicle or loss it will not solve the problem with the responsibility of  this violation - in any case  the fine will be the same 170,000 UAH (it will not be proved hijacking of a vehicle).

 Also, the changes to the code of administrative violations (to Article 121) were made:

Driving  with a vehicle in respect of which restrictions have been imposed by the Customs Code of Ukraine, namely: violation of the terms of its temporary import and / or movement in the customs transit regime, the vehicle is used for business purposes and / or to receive income in Ukraine, a vehicle is using by a person who did not import it into the customs territory of Ukraine or did not place in the customs regime of transit, -

entails imposing a fine on the driver in the amount of five hundred tax-free minimum incomes of citizens

So, a fine will be 8500 UAH.

Repeated violation during the year - a fine will be  17 000 UAH with the deprivation of the right to drive a vehicle for one year with or without paid sequestration of the vehicle.

 Also keep in mind that changes have been made to the Law of Ukraine “On Road Traffic”, in particular, to Article 34 of the following content:

Vehicles for personal use temporarily imported into the customs territory of Ukraine by citizens for more than 30 days shall be subject to state registration within ten days from the moment of such import without changing the registration documents and national registration plates of the country of their registration in accordance with the procedure established by the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine


Such changes were done to The procedure of state registration (re-registration), registration of cars, buses, as well as self-propelled cars, designed on the chassis of cars, motorcycles of all types, brands and models, trailers, semitrailers, motorcycles, other equated vehicles and mopeds, approved by the Cabinet decision Ministers of Ukraine from September 7, 1998 № 1388:

paragraph three of article  7:
The vehicles, temporarily imported intothe customs territory of Ukraine,  for a period of more than 30 days are subject to registration at the service centers of the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

So, if f.e.a foreigner wants to use his car more than 30 days and up to 365 days in Ukraine, he 1.has to inform the customs service at the border station that he intends to keep the car in Ukraine more than 30 days, get a written (!) declaration of this and 2.has to inform the Ministry of Internal affairs by registration of the car at a service center of the MVS. However, by our experience per today, 3.6.2019, the customs service is not able to file such documents. By this we recommend you to ask the customs officer for this documents and to secure evidences of the denial (by mobile phone, notice of the ID-document of the customs official!)!
