INTERNATIONAL ROAD HAULAGE PERMITS FOR SOME NON-EU COUNTRIES

7 Feb 2020

Apply for permits to travel to or through Belarus, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Morocco, Russia, Serbia, Tunisia, Turkey and Ukraine, and the rules you have to follow.

 

About the permits:

You can apply for permits for 9 non-EU countries that the UK has agreements with to transport goods to or through those countries.

Each country has single-journey permits. Whether or not you need a permit depends on:

  • the size of the vehicle
  • the nature of the goods being carried

Eligibility:

You must have the right type of vehicle operator licence for Great Britain or vehicle operator licence for Northern Ireland for the goods you’re transporting to apply for a permit.

 

You need a permit in some of the 9 countries if your vehicle is just carrying goods in connection with your own business, and not for hire or reward (sometimes called ‘own account traffic’).

 

Contact the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA) to get help if you do not know if you need a permit.
