Since April 16, EU lorries banned from entering Belarus
Vehicles (cars and tractor units) registered in the European Union are banned from crossing the customs border of the Eurasian Economic Union into Belarus.
Hauliers from the EU will be able to travel just 50 kilometers into the country. They should get to the transhipment points, where the cargo will be reloaded onto lorries operated by Belarusian and Russian companies. In this way, Russia wants to maintain the supply of goods, and at the same time ‘compensate’ for the sanctions, which prohibit trade using Belarusian and Russian vehicles.
There is a list of transhipment points near border crossings where lorries registered in the UE means of transport can reloaded their cargo. Information about these places can be found on the website of the State Customs Committee of Belarus.
This restriction will not apply:
– until 23 April to vehicles registered in the EU that entered Belarus before 16 April,
– to vehicles registered in the EU carrying mail and live animals.
Taking the above into account, The Polish Ministry of Infrastructure advises Polish citizens and hauliers not to travel to Belarus and Russia. Those who have vehicles in Belarus and Russia are advised to immediately return to Poland.
