Kazakh residents will have an access to make procurements at Duty Free
shops when moving inside the EEU (Eurasian Economic Union), Tengrinews.kz
reports citing the Press Service of the State Revenue Committee under the
Ministry of Finance, Kazakhstan.

The possibility of selling good products in a duty-free shop is fixed in
the draft of the Customs Code of the Eurasian Economic Union. The response to
the request from Tenginews.kz explained, this amendment is introduced to develop
the Duty Free-Trade industry and to expand the purchasing power of individuals.

One also specified that such a system of double price tags for good
products in duty-free shops is universally applied in the countries of the
European Union.

“The Article no. 243 of the draft Code defines the list of persons who have
the right to buy the good products placed under the customs procedure of a
duty-free shop:

1) The individuals who are travelling away from the customs territory of
the EEU;

2) The individuals who are arriving in the customs territory of the EEU;

3) The individuals who are departing from one Member State to another one and the individuals
who are entering one Member State from another one;

4) Diplomatic missions, consular offices, representative offices of
states to international organizations, international organizations or their
representative offices located in the customs territory of the EEU, as well as
members of the diplomatic staff of the diplomatic mission, consular officers
and members of their families who live with them, personnel (employees and officials)
of representative offices of States to international organizations,
international organizations or their representative offices;

5) Other organizations or their representative offices and their
personnel, if such implementation is envisaged in accordance with the
legislation of the Member State, in which territory such organizations or their
representative offices are located”, the State Revenues Committee under the
Ministry of Finance of the Republic of Kazakhstan notes.

One expects that the terms for the Customs Code to enter into force will
be adopted during the meetings for presidents of the EEU states in May 2017.
Earlier, it was expected that the Code would come into effect on July 1, 2017,
but then information appeared that this date could be shifted to January 1,
