Import tariff

On 18 February 2015, the Turkish Government has decided to impose 45-50% additional import fees for carpets and tapestry.

Additional duties are imposed collectively with the MFN import duty set by the Decree on Import Regime. Notably, Turkey’s FTA partners and EU countries are exempt from additional duties.

On 21 April 2020, the government of Turkey increased the additional duties (see related state act).
