If you own a Small and Medium-Sized Enterprise (SME) in Latin America you probably never considered the possibility of exporting your products to such an exotic destination as Ukraine for the region’s products. However, maybe you should reconsider: Ukraine is an interesting market with over 45 million inhabitants and a GDP per capita exceeding USD 7,000 per year.
If you decide to export to the Ukrainian market, and find prospective clients, you should take into account the following useful information:
- Products can enter “formally” or “informally”, with different requirements depending on the case.
- “Formal” exports require a Ukraine registered customs agent.
- Certain goods require special permits or their entry may be banned in Ukraine.
- Required documentation to ensure successful entry of your product into Ukraine territory.
In fifth place, if you are shipping your products through DHL you must complete an “Air Waybill (AWB)”, the company’s form for this occasion.
