Goods imported from Russia and Belarus are subject to a general tariff rate of 35%

Goods imported from Russia and Belarus are subject to a general tariff rate of 35%, and no longer qualify for reduced tariff rates. When rates were previously greater than 35%, the higher rate will continue to apply.

This 35% tariff rate will also affect goods that were manufactured in Russia or Belarus, but imported from other countries. Goods in transit on or before 2 March 2022 are not affected by the increased tariff rate.
