Discusses requirements for products entering the country/economy temporarily. Includes information on warranty and non-warranty items shipped for repairs.
Kosovo permits the temporary importation of products for re-exportation provided they do not undergo any change while in country. Such goods are assessed import duties at a rate of 3 percent of value for every month or fraction of a month in storage. Kosovo has “bonded” customs warehouses, which are privately-owned storage facilities that allow importers to store goods duty free until they are released into the local economy or re-exported free-of-charge. Their use, however, is limited. Companies importing warranty and non-warranty items for repair must be authorized by Customs for internal repair or repair under Customs’ control.
