Does your business require import-export transactions?
Then you know how complex and tedious customs payment can be.
A customs card is a smart plastic card issued by the Bank and designed for making any types of customs payments when clearing goods. A customs card is a legal tender accepted all over Russia.
All payments with a customs card are made from a single bank account 24/7 in real-time and are instantly credited to the account of Russian Federal Customs Service, which can be seen by a customs officer in the system “Personal Accounts” in a matter of minutes after the payments have been made. You do not have to make advance payments. You can clear your goods at different customs offices at the same time.

Customs cards fall into main and supplementary cards. Both main and supplementary cards are issued for one account and have a common expenditure limit. In order to set individual card limits, these cards should be identified as another set of main cards, issued on different accounts.
An entity card is issued for customers who intend to pay customs duties for only one entity. In this case, the name of the entity is indicated on the card.
Cards providing payment for third-party duties allow the payment of customs duties both for the entity indicated on the card as well as other entities and are issued for customs brokers.
You may sign up for any type of customs card when applying to Nordea Bank.
A customs card can be recharged through a non-cash funds transfer to a special card account (SCA) and the funds on the account can be used following crediting on the next day. The SCA is maintained in roubles.
If needed, a card account can be urgently recharged (within 2 hours).
