Checkpoint across the border into the port of Sabetta to open on July 1

In the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug, a coordinating council has been formed for the creation of a Russian border-crossing checkpoint in the sea port of Sabetta.

The question of the coordinating council’s establishment and of the individuals it comprises was discussed at an inter-agency meeting in Salekhard. Participants of the meeting also reviewed the draft of the Process Sheet for Organization of Passage of Persons, Vehicles, Goods and Cargo Through the Russian Border at the Port of Sabetta, reported the press service for the office of the governor of the Yamalo-Nenets Autonomous Okrug.

The date for beginning operations at the checkpoint has been designated by order of the President of the Russian Federation and by mandate of the government of the Russian Federation. Operations will begin on July 1, 2014.

During the course of the meeting, Aleksandr Sidorov, Deputy Head of the Ural territorial administration of Rosgranitsa, stressed the uniqueness of the checkpoint in Sabette, which is the first sea point in the Ural Federal Okrug. It is governed by both national and supranational legislation of the Customs Union.

While the checkpoint is designed as a cargo point, as due to its primary profile, the full spectrum of monitoring activities will be performed: border and customs, as well as monitoring by The Federal Service for Supervision of Consumer Rights Protection and Human Well-Being and by The Federal Service for Veterinary and Phytosanitary Surveillance.
