Customs officials require importers to present a customs declaration form with a commercial invoice indicating the specifications, quantity, and value of goods being imported.  Armenia’s customs authority has implemented an on-line declaration process (Direct Trader Input, or DTI) that reduces personal contact between customs officials and importers.

A declaration must be supported by the following documents (where applicable):  contracts, commercial documents such as commercial invoices and packing lists, transport documents, import licenses, TR TS (technical regulation of technical safety) certificates, certificates of origin, sanitary certificates, import permissions and licenses for certain goods, and documents confirming the legitimacy of declarants, brokers, and importers.

The Eurasian Economic Union (EAEU) maintains a unified list of goods for which import and export limitations and prohibitions apply in order to monitor and control movement of goods classified as sensitive by the member states or by the international community.  In Armenia, import licenses are issued by government agencies in accordance with the unified licensing rules of the EAEU.  Information about legislation, licenses, and bans and restrictions on the movement of goods is available on the State Revenue Committee website.  Licenses can be obtained online through an electronic system.
