Ukranian Customs Administration’s e-TIR Field Visit to Turkey

The Ukranian Customs Administration's field visit to Turkey was held on 9-10 May, 2018 for observing the e-TIR transactions carried out between Turkey and Iran.

In that case, Haydarpaşa Customs Office/Port in Istanbul was visited on 9 May 2018 to evaluate the technical infrastructure of the port where the Ro-Ro Lines through Ukraine are in operation.

In the second day, the team including representatives from UNECE, IRU and TOBB paid a visit to İzmir Customs Office to see the procedures where most of the e-TIR operations are held within the framework of the Turkish-Iranian e-TIR Pilot Project.

By doing so, both Customs Administrations had chance to further discuss the possible implementation of an e-TIR Pilot Project between Ukraine and Turkey at a later stage.
