F.A.Q

Why should I use Bunasta's Guarantee instead of TIR Carnet?
  • In order to use the Guarantee, the carrier is not required to make large investments, pay association membership fees, etc.
  • It is easier and more convenient to issue a Guarantee. The driver does not have to bring or buy any forms. The Guarantee is issued in the same service centers the driver would have to visit in order to get an EPI when using a TIR Carnet. Advance Electronic Declaration (Electronic Preliminary Information, EPI) is required for all freight-shipping vehicles, regardless of the form of Guarantee of the payment of taxes.
  • No need for an additional stop in a European customs office to open a TIR Carnet. TIR Carnet is usually formalized by customs brokerage representatives and opened in a customs office within 3–4 hours. When shipping goods from the West, the carrier has to consider where TIR Carnet should be opened. Because of the language barrier or price, carriers often send their trucks to the Lithuanian customs offices and complete the necessary documents there.
  • The Guarantee is often cheaper when the amount of taxes is very small or very large.
  • The Guarantee price is calculated as a percentage of the amount of taxes imposed on the goods. The amount of the guarantee is unlimited (the maximum amount per TIR Carnet is USD 50,000).

When is CHED-PP necessary?

Common Health Entry Document (CHED-PP) for plants, products of plant origin and other goods of plant origin.

This declaration of consignments subject to phytosanitary control is required for all products of plant origin imported into the European Union: food, fresh and dried plants, wood, wooden furniture, cotton and other textiles of plant origin, wooden toys, etc.

If a shipment arrives at a border phytosanitary control post without a CHED-PP completed in advance, the officer will not perform the inspection until CHED-PP is completed and the CHED-PP number is provided.
