“The nature or quantity of the goods must not be such as to suggest that they are imported for commercial purposes”

Fuel is among the goods that are allowed to be transported via the Green Line, as long as it is for personal use, does not exceed a value of 260 euros, and is contained in the tank (fuel tank) of the car, or in a portable container whose capacity does not exceed ten litres, noted the competent representative of the Commission, Stephane de Kerschmacher, invited by the CYPE in the context of the midday press briefing to comment on what is valid regarding the controls carried out by the Republic of Cyprus at roadblocks from the occupied territories.

Citing the Green Line Regulation, the Commission representative said that the text “determines that the goods contained in the personal luggage of persons crossing the Green Line are exempt from turnover tax and excise duty, but also from other duties, as long as they are not of a commercial nature and as long as their total value does not exceed 260 euros per person”.

Also, he added, the goods “are considered to be of a non-commercial nature if their purchase takes place occasional and consisting solely of goods for the personal or family use of the travelers”.

“The nature or quantity of the goods must not be such as to suggest that they are being imported for commercial purposes ” continued Mr. De Kersmaeker.

Fuel, he pointed out, “is considered to fall within this definition, as long as it is contained in a normal vehicle gasoline tank or contained in a portable container and is not exceed ten liters”.
