Export of goods to Latvia
ETK exports goods to Latvia from any city in the Russian Federation.
How to arrange exports to Latvia and what difficulties may arise in this regard? Exporting goods from Russia to Latvia involves several peculiarities of customs clearance. For a successful foreign trade transaction, it is better to contact a customs representative, who will guide you through all the necessary documents and help with their clearance.
One of the features of export to Latvia is the provision of a certificate of origin of goods "Form A". This certificate provides preferences - full or partial exemption from duties and taxes in the importing country when exporting from Russia. This certificate is granted by the Chamber of Commerce and Industry and its authorized agents. The time it takes to issue the certificate is 3 to 5 days.
Another peculiarity has to do with confirming the 0% VAT rate. A Russian exporter has to submit a tax declaration together with a package of documents confirming the foreign trade transaction, as well as undergo a desk tax audit.
So, independent export clearance and sending goods to Latvia requires considerable experience and knowledge in the field of foreign economic activity:
- Correct execution of accompanying documents;
- Up-to-date knowledge in customs clearance;
- Ability to confirm zero rate of VAT;
- Organization of logistics.
ETC will help you to understand all the nuances of the transaction and offers comprehensive services for the supply of goods to Latvia.
A scheme of working with Russian companies:

Shipping and delivery of goods to Latvia
Transport of goods in the direction Russia-Latvia-Russia is carried out by all modes of transport.
Road transport is considered to be the best way to deliver the goods. There are 4 road border crossing points on the border between Russia and Latvia, related to Pskov and Sebezhsk customs. Depending on the route, the most convenient point for customs clearance of the goods and their transportation across the border is chosen. The advantage of auto-delivery is the possibility of transportation of joint and oversized cargo, delivery of goods requiring special temperature conditions, as well as dangerous goods. Road transportation is carried out from any city in Russia and is the most optimal in terms of "price-time-quality".
If fast delivery is required, we will arrange airfreight from airports in Moscow and St Petersburg. The maximum weight of one piece is 150 kg and the dimensions are: height - 110 cm and width - 170 cm. Important, dangerous goods are not allowed to be transported by air.
There is also a rail border crossing point, so oversized cargo, bulk and liquid goods can be transported in containers or wagons.
