The Revenue Service issued a statement regarding the situation created at the Larsi customs checkpoint.
“In the conditions of the increased traffic flow in the entire region, all customs checkpoints have switched to a special mode of operation.
The number of customs officers has been increased at the checkpoints in order to carry out customs control procedures 24 hours a day.
The customs control procedures for trucks leaving Georgia for Russia (Kazbegi customs checkpoint) through the Larsi customs checkpoint are partially delayed.
In order to ensure the continuity of the increased international cargo turnover, within the framework of the joint management of customs checkpoints, the Revenue Service is in intensive communication with the respective customs administrations of the neighboring countries - Turkey, Azerbaijan and Armenia, in order to quickly find alternative customs checkpoints for getting to the destination countries”, - reads the statement.
