Import tariff

With the creation of the Cutoms Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan from 1 January 2010, the unification of the import tariffs have become necessary. Thus, due to the Russian trade policy of protection with regard to the domestic car industry the import tariffs on the used cars have beenincreased, as a result the import tariffs of the used cars of Belarus and Kazakhstan also experienced the import tariff increase. However, the government of Kazakhstan has introduced the following decree to smoothen the consequences of this policy for the Kazakh consumers. Thus, by the Government Decree #682 from 1 July 2010 Kazakhstan has introduced a reduced import tariff for the individuals who import used cars for private use.
