Import tariff

On 5 May 2009 Belarus introduced temporary higher import tariffs on consumer goods to protect the domestic market and cut imports to counter a growing trade deficit. President Lukashenko signed Decree number # 214 on 21 April 2009 giving legal force to this measure. The Decree introduces two lists of commodities - with six months' import duties for the former and nine months' import duties for the latter.

The first list includes meat and poultry by-products (40% of the customs value, and not more than 0.4 euros per kilo), yeast (30%), ice cream (25%), natural grape wines (30%); soap (25%), bags (30%), fiberboard (25%), wallpaper (25%), toilet paper and paper towels (25%), carpets (30%), underwear (30%), tights (25%), sweaters (30%), coats, raincoats, jackets, suits, shirts, blouses (30%), second-hand clothes (30%, and at least 1.1 euros per kilo), refrigerators (25%), washing-machines (25%), microwave ovens (40%), vacuum cleaners (30%), DVD-players (30%), and others (total of 54 four-digits HS tariff lines ). Import duties on textile products (in the first list) will not apply to imports from the European Union, Turkey , Switzerland and Liechtenstein (as a result of a prior Presidential Decree number 68 issued on 8 February 2008).

The second list includes potatos, onions, cabbages, carrots, and beets. Those products are subject to a restrictive 180% import duty for the period of 9 months.
